Psalms 119:18 – Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law. God wants us to see the wonderful things that He has set out for us today. God has declared His glory through nature which we often take for granted. But His glory in all creation ought to speak to us about His mighty power and creativity. He has written His law for us to read and see His glory and power. But often our eyes are blinded by our own personal whims and fancies which are created in us by the world around us. God has written a book for us to use as a guide, lamp, wise counsel and instructions to follow. This book is the eternally secured Word in Heaven and is as sure as eternity itself. It contains all that we need to live in peace in this world which has no peace. It pours God’s love into our hearts. Whereas we cannot find God in the seemingly attractive things which are sold in the vanity fair of this world, we can find Him appearing to us in His full glory on the pages of His book. We are often not able to see the glory of God with our eyes also because our eyes are blinded by our situations and circumstances which are like dark clouds in our horizon. But the rays of the Son of God will appear in our eyes if we look to Him through His Book where we can see illustrations, examples, events, people, object lessons, warnings and guidance to help us keep going in spite of difficult circumstances. But if we want to see, we must go to the Lord and ask Him to open our eyes of understanding. We must look at our situations through Lord who is in it for us. He will help us to understand our situations and strengthen our ability to see things in His perspective.
Dear reader, are you perplexed because your situations hide the Lord from your eyes? As you call Him, do you find that there is no answer coming from Him for so long? Perhaps your answer has already come to you in the Law of the Lord, the Bible, but you have not taken time to look into it. Today God’s Word is the primary medium through which He speaks to us. It helps you see the Son of God even in the darkest hours of your life. God gives you clear instructions and illustrations in His Book to help you understand how He works in your life and situations. As you read, assimilate and obey these instructions, examples and warnings, you will get wisdom from God to handle yourself and your situations. The Bible will help you to understand what is going on in your life and why it is happening to you. You can also see what you should do to solve your problems and how to handle your situations. God is not always changing your situations, but changing you so that you can rise above your situations unhurt. Many of your difficulties like loss, failure, success, pain, hatred, conflict and frustrations are explained by God in His Book. But to see properly, you must ask that your eyes may be opened by God. Then He will open your eyes of understanding to see the wonderful things He has in store for you. If you dwell in the Lord, He will brighten your paths and steps to enable you to see properly to move forward without fear or anxiety. If your heart cry is for capacity to see the wonderful things God has prepared for you, He will surely answer you and open your eyes of understanding and show you things that you need to see as in the case of Abraham, Jacob, Joseph, Daniel, Moses, Joshua and Paul. You will thus receive God’s enabling to see things in His perspective, correct your ways and put your total trust in Him for onward march.2 Kings 6:17 – The Lord opened the servant’s eyes and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha. Thought for Today
When we open our eyes, we can see God everywhere working for us to glorify His name in and through His children in all their situations.
