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 : Spiritual truth will appear hidden where the eyes are spiritually blinded.
LISTEN : God is light and His word gives light. His light is too deep for darkness to comprehend. Insight from God’s word enlightens the mind and reveals the will of God to man. We could possibly miss our way if we are not guided by God’s word. The Psalmist said,
“Your word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Friend, determine to gain spiritual understanding. Your eyes are your light, and your light through God’s word is your life. You have no life without the light of God. Life is full of mysteries, and until God opens our eyes we will understanding nothing. Only those whose eyes are spiritually opened know the will of God in any given situation. My dear, you will never understand what God does not 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!”
This simply means that we all need divine help to see things from God’s perspectives. Without divine help you cannot understand the language of God. You cannot understand the word of God unless your eyes are opened spiritually. Spiritual blindness causes people to oppose the words and will of God. (Acts 26:18). Truly, if you are blind, it will be difficult to know the right way to go. There are beautiful things for you in the word of God; but until your eyes are opened you cannot discover God’s purpose (Ephesians 1:17-18). When your eyes are opened, the coverings of ignorance would disappear. You cannot 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 or her sight, you will 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 will discover hidden truths in His word. Remember, the word of God is light. 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. As you read the Bible, pray for grace to discover hidden truths.
Prayer : Dear heavenly Father, I thank You because all secrets belong to You. Therefore, open my eyes to see wondrous things from Your word, in Jesus’ name, amen.
A Word Of Blessing : Henceforth, your eyes are opened to the will of God. Therefore, receive grace to discover hidden truths and treasures in His words, in Jesus’ name, amen.
Reflection : Light rules over darkness. And he who walks in the light of the Word of God cannot walk in darkness.
Quote : “Jesus Christ is the true Light from heaven. Hence, if His light cannot dispel the darkness in you, you will forever be in darkness.”
