If there’s one word that encapsulates this spiritual season for me it’s “awareness”.

As I pray for vision and sight and the spiritual gift of discerning of spirits I can’t help but be aware that GOD HIMSELF is aware!

“For the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God.” -1 Corinthians 2:10

We have a God who is aware!

We have a God who searches!

And not just casually- The Spirit of God searches “all things“- even the depths of a limitless God! His very nature is to search out and to be aware. In the Book of Daniel we learn that He is the “revealer of mysteries”.

“The king said to Daniel, “Surely your God is the God of gods and the Lord of kings and a revealer of mysteries, for you were able to reveal this mystery.” -Daniel 2:47

Why was Daniel able to reveal that which was otherwise hidden?

Because GOD KNEW and showed it to Daniel!

My spiritual awareness comes directly from the fact that God is searching out everything, and at all times and in all things is completely AWARE. The Holy Spirit need only show me and suddenly I too am aware! That’s pretty amazing!

A verse that keeps coming to my mind about all this is found in the Psalms.

“Even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You.” -Psalm 139:12

Think about that!

God’s awareness is on a level beyond anything we can imagine.

When I find myself in situations that are unknowable to me, even places of complete darkness where I have no ability in myself to see, God peers into those places with perfect vision.

My spiritual sight comes directly from the fact that He is aware, and through His Spirit opens my eyes to see what He sees.

When we ask for spiritual vision what we’re really asking is to enter into deeper relationship with the one who sees all things.

As we walk closely with God He shares Himself with us. We get to see what He sees, hear what He hears, and know what He knows- because He delights to be in relationship with us.
