No matter what is happening in our lives, we can take JOY in our salvation! We can walk in the assurance that God is with us in and through it all! Hallelujah!!
I am having my first cataract surgery tomorrow. It is amazing to me that the doctor will remove my lens and put a brand new lens in my eye!! What a miracle!
I have to admit that my excitement outweighs any nervousness I may have. I have worn glasses and/or contacts around 50 years!! The thought of waking up in the mornings and being able to see is awesome!!
Yes, I desire clear vision with my physical eyes…but even greater is my desire for clear vision spiritually! I pray that my renewed vision physically will be a sign of the renewing of my spiritual vision.
May I see what You see, Lord!! May I see past the physical and into the spiritual reality of Your kingdom. May I speak and declare YOUR will over Your people and Your world!
LORD, open my eyes!!!!
“Under a Tornado Watch…Tropical Storm Elsa. UPDATE: Tornado Watch cancelled!”
Within the hour of me posting about the tornado watch this morning, it was cancelled. It just goes to show – things can change quickly…in weather and in life!
We should always be “watchmen.” Watching for physical storms AND spiritual storms!!
For thus the Lord said to me: “Go, set a watchman; let him announce what he sees.” Isaiah 21:6
…”Upon a watchtower I stand, O Lord, continually by day, and at my post I am stationed whole nights.” Isaiah 21:8
Unless the Lord builds the house, those who build it labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stays awake in vain. Psalm 127:1
Lord, watch over our city…our state…our country…our world!! Open our eyes, O Lord! Empower us to be Your watchmen! Empower us to be Your voice! In the mighty name of Jesus I pray! AMEN!
