“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” (Colossians 4: 2).
Prayer is the difference between seeing with our physical eyes and seeing with our spiritual eyes.
Prayer gives us a God’s-eye view. It heightens our awareness and gives us a sixth sense that enables us to perceive spiritual realities that are beyond our five senses.
We are constantly bombarded by countless stimuli vying for our attention… but prayer sanctifies the reticular activating system and enables you to see the God-ordained opportunities that are all around you all the time.
Some things cannot be perceived with the five senses; they can only be conceived by the Holy Spirit. Some things cannot be deduced via deductive reasoning; they can only be imagined by the Holy Spirit. Some things cannot be learned by logic; they can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit compensates for our sensory limits by enabling us to conceive of things we cannot proceed without our five senses.
