Our eyes are a remarkable gift from God, designed to witness the beauty and intricacy of the world around us and to see His hand at work in our lives. This ability to see extends beyond the physical, allowing us to perceive the presence and guidance of God, especially in challenging times.
The Bible highlights the importance of this spiritual sight in Ephesians 1:18 (NIV), where Paul prays that "the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you."
Thus, no matter what we face, we can trust that God will help us see Him in every situation. With our eyes opened by faith, we can navigate any challenge, assured of His constant guidance and support. We can see and experience God in every situation, drawing strength and wisdom from His unfailing presence. Now, think about that.
The eyes in your head and the ‘eyes’ of your heart were both created by God.
Father, help me see Your goodness in any circumstance throughout life. Amen.
What do you see around you that has blessed your life?
