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 : “Desire to see clearly, else, you will be swallowed by ignorance,” says a friend to his friend. My dear, darkness will reign where light is absent, but when light appears darkness disappears. Life is boring and a 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. The Bible says,
“The secret things belong unto the LORD our God:
but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever…”
To know God’s 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!”
Beloved, you need divine help to see things from God’s perspectives. 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 keeps people from obeying 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. The Bible says,
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you
the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of
your understanding being enlightened; that all of you may know what
is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the
glory of his inheritance in the saints.”
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. So, draw closer to God and let Him fill your eyes with light. Henceforth, desire to see clearly. Be wise!
What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Ask God to open your eyes to understand His words.
2. Pray for spiritual understanding and wisdom to follow the will of God.
3. Be desperate to know and to do the will of God.
4. When you read the Bible, pray for grace to discover hidden truths.
Prayer : Heavenly Father, I thank You because all secrets belong to you. Open my eyes to see wondrous things from Your word, in Jesus’ name, amen.
A Word Of Blessing : May your eyes be opened to the will of God. May God help you to discover hidden truths and treasures in His words, in Jesus’ name, amen.
Reflection : Seek divine revelation, for truth will appear hidden where the eyes are blinded to divine truth.
Quote : “Light rules over darkness. And he who walks in the light of the Word of God can’t walk in darkness.”
