Open Your Eyes


Open my eyes to see the wonderful truths in your instructions.

–Psalm 119:18 NLT

What does it mean to open your eyes? It has nothing to do with your vision it is how you look at your circumstances. Do your emotions cause you to see incorrectly? If this is you, then you are on a roller coaster: You have ups and downs and very little peace; there is no happiness or fulfillment; you are always discontent and have no peace of mind; you cannot see tomorrow; it is beyond your view.

Stop struggling with your decisions. James 4:14 (NLT) says, How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog—it’s here a little while, then it’s gone. You are worrying and creating anguish that does not have to prevail. However, your confusion is not from God. God sees the future perfectly and is wise enough to lead and direct you. Open your eyes to Him and seek His wisdom for your decisions. You will have harmony for yourself, family, and others. Don’t close your eyes and be led by emotions. Trust God.

Prayer Focus

  • Pray and ask God to help you react with the wisdom that only He can give.
  • Don’t worry about tomorrow; God is in control.
