The view must be spectacular from the soaring perspective of an eagle. Imagine being able to see ahead of you with an intensification of visual magnification. Imagine the ability to see the tiniest insect on the ground as you fly high above the earth. Imagine seeing flowers in bloom so vividly that the colors take your breath away.
I heard something in my spirit recently that got me thinking about the natural aspect of the eagle’s vision. I want to share it with the prayer warriors and the intercessors because your vision is getting ready to change in the spirit. It is by no mistake that this word came into my spirit. Since that time I have now heard several references prophetically about eagles in this hour.
During a recent time in intercessory prayer I heard the words, visual acuity in my spirit. It was a special time that morning with God releasing words over individual intercessors for the coming year. Prior to this I heard the Lord say that prayer warriors and intercessors would experience an increase and intensification in seeing with dreams and visions. The term visual acuity means sharpness of vision and it is used in conjunction with the ability to discern letters from a given distance. I then began to think about an eagle’s vision and I found out some interesting things.
The significance of the eagle’s vision
Eagles are capable of seeing up to five times farther than we can. Not only do they see farther with 20/5 vision and perceive more colors than we do, but they have a broader visual field (340 degrees compared to our 180 degrees) aiding them in hunting and defense. As I am writing, I am reminded of the four living creatures that Ezekiel saw (Ezekiel 1:10), one of the faces being that of an eagle. I believe this is significant because the vision of the eagle is unmatched when compared to the other three facets of the living creatures. The view of the eagle on these living creatures must be exquisite and without words. That is the view I long to see.
I believe there is a sharpness coming on the vision to see as God sees and to know how to pray with purpose and precision for this season and this hour in the spirit. There is an expansion on the horizon in our spiritual vision to not only see further outward, but to broaden the view in our realm of influence. God wants to give us His perspective on things.
He wants to magnify the areas needing to be intensified in prayer. He wants to enhance our vision to see the smallest details so that we can pray and intercede with precision. The Lord desires for the body to have greater visual acuity so that she can see the enemy more clearly and with a greater span, eliminating the possibility of surprise attacks.
Let us not forget the colors! He wants to show us things of Himself that pale in comparison to every color known to man. There is a level of resplendent glory and majesty embodying His very nature that we have yet to scratch the surface in beholding.
Get ready for a change in vision!
Prayer warriors, some of you are going to experience an intensification in your already intense prayer time and intercession. God is going to amp up the encounters of dreams and visions and some of you may begin to dream in color. Get ready!
Some of you may be in the infancy stages of intercessory prayer. God wants to accelerate your spiritual vision and mature you exponentially. Begin to declare over your life that you possess 20/5 spiritual vision, the vision of the eagle. Ask the Father for enhanced vision and a broadened view in the Spirit so that you can pray the prayers aligning with His perfect will.
Receive over your life that He desires to commune with you and to show you things, dreams and visions. Refuse to be open prey for the enemy as your horizon expands visually and always seek Him above all else, remembering that there are facets of Him yet to be encountered. It is not for our glory, but for His glory. Let’s see further in the Spirit than we have before so that we know how to pray in the will of the Father for 2017.
