“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people.”
Good Morning Abba Father,
Yesterday was a glorious day spent with you in your revealing truth, your beauty in communion, and your gracious love for us all. I relished the time I spent with you in church as we worshiped you and shared your Holy Communion with other faithful believers.
The afternoon and evening were spent in your truthful words in the Bible. The message proclaimed at church and the studies I did in your Word led me to the scripture in Ephesians 1:18. I focused on the “eyes of your heart” wondering what this truly meant for me. I know from scriptures like Proverbs 4:23 “above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” That everything I do and say shows where my heart truly is.
I came to the conclusion that the eyes of our heart are the ways we see things around us. Two people can be looking at the same situation and have completely different visions of what is before them. One sees all the good possibilities happening around them; the other sees only the evil things happening around them. What we think and focus on is what we will see with the “eyes of our heart.” In other words, as someone said, ” we can either put our energy into NOT falling OR we can focus on the Walk before us – what God’s Love can do for us.
How do we change our vision?
It means we will no longer look at the problems around us but will focus on God’s promises of a glorious future. We will become enthralled with the beauty around us and focus on God’s great love for us. We will gladly accept the tasks God has laid out for us and work to fulfill them with “joy in our hearts”. We will only keep our eyes focused on God who is the Light! Thanks be to God that we can receive and feel the Healing touch of the Lord our God, and that our eyes will only see the beauty that surrounds us. Your Grateful Daughter.
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”
