Because I’m In A New Place …

I Must Reestablish My Optic Restraints

“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened;……” Ephesians 1:18


One of the most undetectable hindering forces in our Christian walk is the lack of our ability to “see” our world through God’s optic lens.   Not that God has actual eyes – but rather meaning; to view; to understand; to perceive and to understand from the character of who He is.


Today, we are going to ask the Lord to remove every optic restraint that is preventing us from exceling….. every optic restraint that is hindering our ability to be that powerfully effective threat to the kingdom of darkness that we should be. Whatever spirit is diminishing our zeal; our tenacity and our ability to perceive our future status from a “kingdom platform”; must be revealed, removed, and commanded never to return.  This command must be fortified by sealing the entrance that permitted access and an entry to our optic realm.


So, Lord my prayer is also that my discernment be sharpened to a position of dominance over my reasoning.  May I also be more conscience concerning what I permit my physical eyes to view on a regular basis.  Lord, bring me to a constant awareness that I MUST curtail; the television programs, the movies, the videos, any printed material, and everything that enters my eye gate.  Assist me in the realization that if my optic restraints are to be reestablished – that I must also limit what I feed my spirit man. I must fully comprehend that many things are not sinful – but they will not permit me to have the ability to “view” from a place of kingdom authority and power.  In other words; there are things which in themselves are not sinful; yet these things will cause a delay in the renewal process of my mind and limit the view of my spiritual horizon.  


May I see clearly without the input from anything that is contrary to the hope of your glory.  May I always be cognizant of the fact that, that which is seen through my physical is temporal – however that which is perceived in the realm of the Spirit is eternal!  And now Lord – with every ungodly restraint or perception removed and replaced according to Kingdom guidelines…. May the eyes of my heart be flooded with the illumination of your radiant light.

17For I always pray to the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him, 18By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones), 19 And [so that you can know and understand] what is the immeasurable and unlimited and surpassing greatness of His power in and for us who believe, as demonstrated in the working of His mighty strength,”   Ephesians 1:17-19 AMP
