Eyes Wide Open



Psalm 119:18 (NLT) Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.

When prayed sincerely, God will answer this prayer. 

Write these words on an index card you keep with your Bible and pray them earnestly:  Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.

If you read your Bible with a heart truly open to receive God’s Word and ask Him for enlightenment, God will reveal deeper meaning.  We sometimes fail to see its truth when we bring along our cynicism, skepticism and ego.  It's likely we won’t feel enlightened if Bible reading is a chore.

I encourage you to humbly ask God to open your eyes every time you read scripture.  Read as though the words contain great knowledge.  Don’t gloss over familiar verses but look for fresh insight.  Expect God to bring to your mind people or situations to which the message applies.  Approach the scripture with a heart eager to obey His instruction.

Do you expect to receive great truth when you read the Bible? (tweet this)

Like a productive garden, a rich relationship should be tended regularly.  To be reminded to plant His Word in your heart, follow me on Twitter @Cathy_Chung or subscribe at Seeds of Scripture.
