Have you seen a satellite view of a map from space? From that view you can zoom in so close to where you can see the physical building of the address you entered on the search. It’s so close that now you can see the actual house or building.
The same goes with prayer. For instance, when you pray for your city, what do you imagine? For me, when I pray, I usually pray this general prayer over my city, casually seeing the silhouette of the city’s skyscrapers; slow moving cars in major traffic, and sidewalks filled with groups of people.
However one day I was definitely shocked when I was at a store and the person who worked as a cashier was incredibly rude. In that moment I was taken back and about to do the “I’ll show you rude”, when suddenly my heart’s mind got interrupted with this eye opening, active visual. It was a moving picture of me seeing the satellite view from space and suddenly the picture accelerated with a zoom; a zooming from a view of the earth, to seeing oceans, then mountains, countries and then I could see our country, then our states, then it zoomed even closer onto Texas and it kept going right over Austin, zooming in closer until BAM, it was zooming in right on the person who stood before me.
I was taken back, yet again but with such heavy compassion. It was as though I heard in my spirit, “Teresa, you prayed for the city of Austin and I just highlighted one.”
“What will you do with this?”
“Will you remain offended?”
“Or will you see this as an opportunity for My Love to be seen? Will you take this opportunity to be the light? Will you take this as an opportunity to overcome evil with good?”
Are there moments in which your circumstances have been seen as a personal matter? Do you see how it was never meant to be taken personally; but to personally take it to the LORD? It’s a moment in which GOD allows us to see it so much closer, below the surface and see that the rooted need is GOD’s love to be seen through you and me.
