Once we become a new creature in Christ, we are given a
special gift of "supernatural" vision. This is a gift of
discernment in order to protect us from the things we see in
the natural. This new vision takes us deeper to see the
things that are seen beyond the natural. We no longer trust
what our eyes see,we see what our heart sees. God knows
that our eyes can be deceiving so He gave us this gift in
order to protect us from the wolves in sheep's clothing.
As an example,I would like to use my flower garden. Last
spring I was checking on my flower garden that I had
planted the year before.Much to my delight the flowers I had
planted seemed to be flourishing, but soon they looked as
they were taking over and nothing was blooming.
Although these imposters took on a similar appearance,
upon closer examination I soon realized that they were
weeds choking out the original flowers. My precious flowers
were being robbed of the essential sunshine and nutrients.
Then it came to me, I remembered an important lesson that
Jesus taught about discernment. It was simple really. He
said you can tell if something is good by the fruit it
produces.This not only applies to flowers, but people also.
Without hesitation I pulled these seemingly innocent plants
out by the roots, therefore giving the good fruit bearing
plants a chance to grow and flourish.
Just as I was able to recognize these weeds, our eyes have
to be trained to see others for who and what they really are,
not just by their outward appearance, but by the fruit they
In his affliction,Job asked of God, "Do You have eyes of
flesh? Do You see as a
man sees?" God is Spirit so therefore He sees in the
Spirit. But God taught Job a valuable lesson to open his
spiritual eyes, not only to see his own weaknesses, but to
also see God for who He really is. God sees us for who and
what we really are, we can't hide from Him the fruit we bear
inwardly or outwardly. God also gave us this gift of seeing
clearly through His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus came as the
Light of the world to teach us that we cannot be wise in our
With the newfound ability to see in the Light, we
are now able to see when others are in the dark about
situations. In this discernment we get a feeling of conviction
from the Holy Spirit that warns us of things that don't always
appear as they seem.
John 15:8: When you bear,(produce) much fruit, My Father is honored and glorified, and you show
and prove yourselves to be true followers of
How are we to grow and bear good fruit? We must first get
rooted and grounded in love. The next time you see
someone or something with your 'natural' eyes
and it appears to be good, stop and ask yourself, "does it
bear good fruit?"
