Verse Of The Day : Open my eyes so I can truly see the marvelous things in your law! Psalms 119:18
Thought of The Day : You can see or know nothing about the will of God if your eyes are not spiritually open.
LISTEN : Darkness will reign where light is absent, but when light appears darkness disappears. Life is boring and a complete nightmare without light. Light is life! Light here stands for revelations, insights, direction, illumination, wisdom, etc. Life is full of mysteries, and until God opens our eyes we can see nothing. Only those whose eyes are opened know the will of God in any given situation. My dear, you’ll never understand what God doesn’t reveal to you. (Deut. 29:29). To know His ways you should ask him to open your eyes spiritually. However, for your eyes to be opened, you must desire it. David prayed, “Open my eyes so I can truly see the marvelous things in your law!” (Psalms 119:18). This simply means that we all need divine help to see things from God’s perspectives. Beloved, without divine help you can’t understand the language of God. You can’t understand the word of God unless your eyes are opened spiritually. Spiritual blindness is responsible for rejecting the words of God. (Acts 26:18). Truly, if you’re blind, it’ll be difficult to know the right way to go. My dear, there are beautiful things for you in the word of God; but until your eyes are opened you can’t discover them. (Ephesians 1:17-18). When your eyes are opened, the coverings of ignorance will disappear. You can’t grope anymore to find your way when you walk in the light of God. Like the joy of a blind person who suddenly regains his sight, you’ll experience unspeakable joy when your eyes are opened to hidden truths and blessings in the word of God. So, ask God to open your eyes today and you’ll discover hidden truths in His word. Remember, you’ll not understand the will of God until your eyes are opened to His word. So, draw closer to God and let Him fill your eyes with light. Be wise!
