Guiding Light

The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light. Matthew 6:22

The eyes are such an amazing part of the body with each one having over one million light-sensitive cells. They want to pull in as much light as possible in order to see clearly. It can be hard to imagine the affect that losing your sight would have; talk to anyone with macular degeneration, glaucoma or cataracts and they will tell you how difficult life can become. A healthy eye is a precious thing.

Our spiritual eyes also need to be healthy and clear in order to see all that the Lord reveals to us as we live out our daily lives for Him. He is the source of light and we want to pull in as much of that as we possibly can. Luke tells us that the Lord said to his disciples, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see!”. He was showing them Himself, the Father and the truth of the Kingdom, which He continues to show to us today, through the Spirit. What a privilege and blessing.

Our focus needs to be clear and sure, for we need to see where He is leading and be sure of the steps we take. So, keep your eyes firmly fixed on Jesus and let your whole being be filled with His guiding light.
