Your Heart Has Eyes!




I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.

Ephesians 1:18-21

You must be careful about what you allow your eyes to see. Evil can seep into your head when you simply stare at the wrong thing. There is even a line in a children's song that says "Be careful little eyes, what you see!"

You have another set of eyes. The eyes of your heart are even more powerful in touching the core of your being with what you see. The eyes in your head are limited in seeing only those things in the physical world around you. But the eyes of your heart can see the spiritual world.

With the eyes of your heart you can see the Glory behind a beautiful sunset. With the eyes of your heart you can see Heaven and the future world of unbridled joy and peace! With the eyes of your heart you can see the "light at the end of the tunnel" and the light beyond the darkness of this world.

When the eyes of your heart become focused on spiritual wickedness, the darkness is tragic. Don't focus your heart on the wickedness of this world, even for entertainment. It will not draw you closer to Jesus!

"Lord Jesus, let me see more today of the Glory that only belongs to You. Make me ready to stand in Your presence and praise Your Name forever! Amen."
