Jeremiah 1:11 ” The word of the Lord came to me: ‘What do you see, Jeremiah?’ “

Many times throughout the Old Testament the Lord would ask this question of the prophets.  Besides Jeremiah, the Lord asked Amos and Zechariah the same question…”What do you see?”  Now in front of them were easily recognizable objects such as a almond branch, a boiling pot, a plumb line, or a basket of ripe fruit.  But it wasn’t until the Lord explained the meaning and symbolism and pulled back the veil to reveal the true interpretation of the object,  that the men were enlightened to the astonishing disclosure.  Even today the Lord may show you something and ask, “What do you see?”  That’s when you start with the simple answer and ask Him to show you the deeper meaning… or His perspective and vision.
