Through Spiritual Eyes

There is a spiritual world around us that we cannot see and I want to bring that world to life through fictional stories. My writing includes stories of unknown characters living their lives in biblical settings, events of the past as seen by angels or demons, or current events taking place in the spirit realm. Elijah spoke of this spiritual realm and prayed that his attendant’s eyes would be open. What would you see if your eyes were open?

The prophet’s attendant got up early in the morning. When he went outside there was an army surrounding the city, along with horses and chariots. He said to Elisha, “Oh no, my master! What will we do?” He replied, “Don’t be afraid, for our side outnumbers them.” Then Elisha prayed, “O Lord, open his eyes so he can see.” The Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he saw that the hill was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. As the army approached him, Elisha prayed to the Lord, “Strike these people with blindness.” The Lord struck them with blindness as Elisha requested.
