Open My Eyes

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

The Bible uses countless natural things to teach us spiritual truths. Egypt worshipped the false god of the sun called Ra. God was able to deny Egypt their false god in a way that would have been rather frightening. He caused the land of Egypt to go dark for three days. It was so dark no one could see each other and no one moved. Have you ever experienced total, complete, utter darkness? I had a frightening experience some years ago. I woke up blind. I couldn’t see anything. It was scary and confusing. As it turned out, I had an occular migraine that caused temporary blindness. Fortunately, my sight was restored a few hours later, but I can imagine the darkness the Egyptians experienced that caused them to grope about for three full days. This plague carried the same meaning to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians that the other eight had. It was an attack upon their gods and a punishment for the spiritual darkness of Pharaoh and his kingdom. The sun gods could not stop the eerie darkness from covering the land. God proved that he alone is the living and all-powerful God. What circumstances might God be using in your life to move you closer to him? Ask God to soften the hardened areas of your heart so that you can respond to his Spirit.
 Meditate on the words to this beautiful hymn as you ask God to open your eyes to his Spirit.

Open my eyes that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou has for me;
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free.

Silently now I wait for Thee,
Ready, my God, Thy will to see;
Open my eyes, illumine me,
Spirit Divine!
