I watched a You Tube video with a friend the other night of a ten year old blind boy singing the song “Open The Eyes Of My Heart Lord”. It was powerful to say the least. You can watch the video by clicking here.
Many thoughts entered my mind. I thought how I wished that God would loose the tongue of our son so that he could sing God’s praises like this young boy. Tear scalding my cheeks I begged God for this. It is such a powerful video. Yet, the truth that I also saw was just as powerful. That truth is?
Most of us are blind. We don’t see God or if we do see Him we don’t want to see Him. This is so sad. When we read the Word of God we need to ask God to open our eyes to see what He is saying to us as we read. As we go about our day we need to ask God to help us see the opportunities we have to share salvation with the people around us. We need to ask God to open our eyes to see opportunities that we can be an extension of His out stretched hand. “Open The Eyes Of My Heart Lord”!
Look at Psalm 119:18, “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law. ” We need to see things as God sees them.
So, how are you doing?
