Open Your Eyes to God's Vision

In review of Psalm 119:18 it says, “Open my eyes, so that I may see the wonderful truths in your law.” (Psalm 119:18 TEV)

Bottom Line:
Open my eyes to see the miracles in your teachings.


What this means to me:
I need to ask God continually to open my eyes so that I can discover the wonders and miraculous things in his Word and catch his vision. God’s word is filled hundreds of examples of people catching God’s vision. I believe that God will gladly clarify my next steps and give him his vision if I’m willing to be quiet enough to hear it. One way that I can better get and understand his vision is by asking “God, is there anything you want to say to me?”  As I wait, I can also ask “God, is there anything I need to know that I’m not thinking about?” And then continue to wait. James 1:5 says, “If any of you need wisdom, you should ask God, and it will be given to you. God is generous and won’t correct you for asking” (CEV). God wants me to ask him for advice, and he wants me to be specific. He’s just waiting for me to ask.  Next, look into God’s Word to see what God might want to say to you. Todays verse, Psalm 119:18 is a great verse for me to keep close: “Open my eyes, so that I may see the wonderful truths in your law” (TEV). This is a good verse to use in my quiet time as I open up God’s Word. Every answer to every problem I could ever have can be found in his word. I just need to keep reading, studying, memorizing, and meditating on it, as I seek God’s vision for my life or even just for today.
