Welcome to *16/06* and the *DECEPTION OF PHYSICAL VISION* is in *1Samuel 16/06*-
_”And it came to pass, when they were come, that he looked on Eliab, and said, Surely the Lord’s anointed is before him.”_
Samuel was commissioned by God to go to the house of Jesse to anoint one of his sons as the next king of Israel- _”And the Lord said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Beth-lehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.”_ vs1
By physical sight, Samuel got attracted to Eliab the first son of Jesse and thought he was the Lord’s anointed to become king.
But the Lord intercepted Samuel from being deceived by Eliab’s physical stature- _”But the Lord said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.”_ vs 7
“`Physical vision is seeing things the way they appear to be.
Physical vision is looking at things from outward appearance.
Physical vision is viewing things from human instincts, intelligence and intuition.
Physical vision is appreciating things from human perspective and experience.“`
But through physical vision, Samuel would have anointed the wrong person and Israel would have been worse for it.
God needed to caution Samuel from using physical vision to discern His perfect will.
Samuel then activated his spiritual vision to discern the perfect will of God in David- _”And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the Lord said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the Lord came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.”_ vs 12,13
Through this spiritual vision, Samuel anointed David who went on to become the greatest king of Israel.
*Your physical vision is deceitful in discerning the perfect will of God in any area of your life.*
*Spiritual vision will make you to see, discern and judge things the way they really are to God and not the way they appear to be to you.*
*How well you can activate your spiritual vision per time will determine how far you will accomplish the perfect will of God over time.*
*The more you allow your spiritual sight to overrule your physical sight the more you will accomplish the perfect will of God and fulfil your glorious destiny!*
_O Lord activate my spiritual vision to always discern and do your perfect unto fulfilling my glorious destiny in Jesus name._
*DISCERN ALL THINGS WITH SPIRITUAL VISION*
*GOD’S VISION DRIVEN SEER*
