YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES;
(Flood Your Eyes With God’s Light)
TO THE BIBLE Psalm 119:130
“The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.”
Some people may not know this, but every human being has two sets of eyes. The first is our physical eyes with which we see and appreciate the world around us. The other set is the spiritual eyes, which, incidentally, most never use, or don’t know how to use; they’ve never seen with the spiritual eyes. Such people only see things from the natural point of view. Only God’s Word can open your spiritual eyes.
I remember the testimony of a man who was healed in one of our meetings. For two years, he couldn’t recognise anyone, not even his wife or siblings. While at the meeting, however, he was fully restored to normalcy. Even though we didn’t physically lay hands on him, he experienced a divine touch because he was in the presence of God, where the Word was being taught. Hence, his mind was illumined to see and comprehend rightly again—that’s the power of God’s Word!
Our opening verse says, “The entrance of Your words gives light; It gives understanding to the simple.” Interestingly, the Greek Septuagint uses the word “photizo,” which means to illuminate or flood with light. Therefore, the verse should actually read, “The entrance of Your words floods with light….” As you allow God’s Word into your heart through diligent study and constant meditation, your heart is flooded with light.
It’s akin to the Spirit’s prayer through the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 1:17-18. He prays that the eyes of your spirit be flooded with light. Even now, as you’re studying this devotional, something is happening in your spirit. Your spiritual eyes are being flooded with light; they’re being enlightened to see and apprehend the realities of our heavenly Kingdom.
John 8:12; 2 Corinthians 4:4
I testify that there’s light in my life and in all that concerns me, because I’m yielded to the ministry of the Word. I refuse to fret today or in the future because the light of the Gospel shines in my heart, showing me the path of victory and success! There’s no darkness whatsoever in my life; my way is bright and my future secure. Hallelujah!
