Open our eyes that we may SEE

Most of us go through our lives, scarcely seeing the things that really matter. But like some of the prophets, we can ask the LORD God to open our eyes!

 


 

Prophets see. They see the natural world and all that happens in it. And they see the Big-Picture issues that really matter.

And they also see the invisible realm.

Some of them received that “sight” as a gift. Others asked for it.

In our day, Christians need to see. We need to see the natural world and all that happens in it.

And we also need to see the Big-Picture issues that really matter.

And we also need to see into the invisible realm.

Like some of the prophets, we too can ask the LORD God to open our eyes!
