Owls have some pretty amazing natural endowments given to them by God. The owl has eyes that can see in the dark. This can be compared to the life of the believer, where Jesus says that “Ye are the light of the world.” Matthew 5:14.
We are supposed to see in the dark even when the whole world is blind. The devil has blinded the world, but that is the reason for which the believer is manifested; to show light and direction to those that live in darkness.
Darkness is never the way of God. It connotes ignorance, and we know that every person that lacks knowledge will always perish [Hosea 4:6].
This is why believers must wake up and actively let the light of God so shine before men, that they may see and know, and give glory to our heavenly Father.
Another fantastic attribute of the owl is that it can see things from far away, which others may not see normally.
Believers must also have that far-sight, and this is provided for in the Word of God. The insight that God’s Word gives us an understanding of spiritual seasons. We should not be ignorant and fall where others may fall, but by the wisdom and knowledge of God, we are set apart, different, and unique from the world.
