Open my eyes, Oh Lord: 1. theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 119:18

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

The Psalmist crying out for Understanding,Wisdom, Knowledge, Comfort, Peace and Joy.

He realized how blind he was. There is an Old Proverb, “Seeing is Believing .”

(I suppose stemming from the story of Doubting Thomas. Who needed to see, to believe.)

As we remember our lives before Christ, we were blind, unknowing, uncaring, we had no understanding of Gods Love, Mercy, and Grace.

It is only by the Power of the Holy Spirit, who draws us, and awakens us, that our Jesus journey, starts,with opened eyes.

In Genesis 12, we find the story of Abram.

It says, “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

To me, (Informed by personal experience.) ‘had said,’ means the Lord, more than once, had nudged Abram, before he entered the land, the Lord, would show him.

Moses, saw the burning bush, Pharoah, with hardened heart, saw the plagues, so he would know the Lord was God.

At the Red Sea, Moses said to the Hebrews; “Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day:

Stand still and See, He will Show us.

It seems the Lord believes Seeing is Believing. He wants us to See.

Isaiah 41:20 we find the Lord promising to meet the needs of His people, and to do Miracles. Why?
That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”

The Lord has always used the Miraculous to open the eyes of unbelievers. Why isn’t He Today?

We have allowed an evil spirit of unbelief, to rob the Church of the Power, the Lord Jesus, left for us,

The Holy Spirit, was sent to give us Power.

We do not allow Him to, because of our unbelief.

We put His gifts on the shelf, we either think we do not need them, or we do not deserve them, or the best used by date is past.

ALL WRONG, THEY ARE FOR WHOSOEVER WILL.

We just won’t, don’t and can’t…

Totally our decision. We do not Fast, Pray, and Touch the Master. If we ever knew how? We have forgotten.

Search the Word. He wants to build His Church. He sent the Holy Spirit to empower us to do it.

We deny His Teaching, Leading, Wisdom and Knowledge, and have a bake sale instead.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

I beg you Lord. Amen
