Open the Eyes of my Heart

11 Aug

God’s Word: John 9

God’s message to me:

I created the earth and all it contains as a home for mankind.  Adam and Eve had the eyes of their heart opened as we fellowshipped together in that beautiful and sinless world.  But then, the eyes of their hearts were shut as they reached out for the forbidden.  They chose to disobey—to sin.  How they wished they could have taken back that decision and not closed the eyes of their heart.

From then until now I have been offering mankind many ways to open the eyes of their heart—to come into relationship with Me.  I tried giving them written rules to guide them but they ignored them.  I sent prophet after prophet to warn them, but they stoned them.  Finally, I came to earth as Jesus and demonstrated how much I loved mankind.  And what happened?  Again, my offer to open the eyes of their hearts was rejected—to the point of crucifixion.

Even in that awful circumstance I brought new life—the grave could not hold the body of Jesus—for I hold the power of life eternal.  And I offer that life to all who will believe in Jesus as my ambassador of love and forgiveness.  To believe in Jesus opens the eyes of the heart.  And when the eyes of your heart are opened you will see the world with a whole new perspective.  You will live on a higher plan of peace and joy that you ever thought possible.  All that and heaven eternally is my gift to you—because I love you so much.

God’s Question for me: Will you keep the eyes of your heart open and focused on Jesus?

God’s Promise to me: “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day.”

My prayer to God:

I am thrilled at the view I can have with the eyes of my heart opened to see You.

I am sorry that I so often let the cares of this life blur the eyes of my heart.

Thank you for keeping your offer of forgiveness, peace and joy open.

Help me to keep my vision focused on You and Your purpose for my life.

My Song to God:

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

{Chorus}
To see you high and lifted up
Shining in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy

{Chorus}

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You

{Chorus}

Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
I want to see You
