I had an English teacher that seemed to have eyes in the back of her head. As she would write on the chalkboard (no white boards), she would call down anyone who was misbehaving in class. There were even times that she would instruct someone not to commit an act they were about to do. Many of us miss so much when we are looking straight at an object, yet my English teacher could see details with her back toward us. As believers, we are to see as the Lord sees. That takes a special gift. A gift that can only come from the Lord to our hearts.
Ephesians 1:18 (NIV)
18 I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints.
