Becoming spiritually farsighted is the vision correction that Jesus offers all of His followers. There are no bifocals with Him. When we learn to see all the way to heaven inside the throne room to where Jesus is seated, our nearsighted vision of this world becomes out of focus and we start to see Jesus clearly as the only source of our faith.
Hebrews 12:2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
We not only see Jesus clearly once we learn to focus with our new lens, we will actually start to see ourselves clearly for the first time.
Ephesians 2: 6 and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
With our spiritual lens correction, we start to see ourselves as God sees us, which is seated with Christ in heaven. We are spiritually in the same place as Jesus who has been raised above all rule and authority and power and dominion. Satan and his demonic troops are beneath Jesus’ feet because He defeated this kingdom of darkness with His death and resurrected life. We are now seated with Jesus in a position above the demonic realm with the ability to overcome their relentless attacks on our lives because we have the same power available to us that raised Jesus from the dead.
Ephesians 1: 19 and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe. These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might
20 which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,
When we let Jesus correct our worldly nearsightedness into spiritual farsightedness, we will see Jesus seated in power offering us His very resurrected life. This corrected vision will allow us to see ourselves seated with Him in a position of power to defeat satan and the demonic realm in our lives and live out the abundant life Jesus promised.
This concept is wonderfully communicated in the chorus of the old Hymn “Turn your eyes upon Jesus”.
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
