Ask God to Open Your Eyes

"Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law." -
Psalm 119:18 NASB.

Thoughts for Today

In the 1860s, the Comstock Lode in western Nevada became one of the most lucrative mining strikes in American history, yielding hundreds of millions of dollars in gold and silver. But, amazingly, those who mined this site almost missed these riches.

Sparked by the California gold rush in 1848, earlier prospectors had searched western Nevada, focusing on the quest for gold. But, as Ronald James points out in his book, The Roar and the Silence, because of their obsession with gold, the first miners did not realize they were "digging into one of the wealthiest silver lodes in the world…Miners ignored the mineral-bearing black rock and pursued the precious metal they knew best."

Eventually, it was realized that these rocks were rich in silver, and the Comstock boom began. But countless miners had failed to realize that their hands were touching great riches. They had lost a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, because they were not discerning enough to examine the rocks that were before them.

In the spiritual realm, many Christians don't realize what great riches God has in store for them: riches of power, wisdom, blessing, peace, and abundance. They have a limited appreciation for what's possible and what God wants to reveal to them.

But the Psalmist realized that God offers Believers deeper truths, greater
blessings, and more abundance than we ever could imagine. He cried, "Open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law."

Today, ask God to open your eyes as never before. Don't be content with what you think you know. Don't limit your expectations or assume you've already experienced the fullness of His riches. Ask Him for more of His power, more of His truth, more of His wisdom. Declare His promises to be true for you, and believe that He will grant you more of His blessings. Hunger and thirst for more of God.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, open my eyes, that I may behold wonderful things from Your law. Grant me deeper understanding of Your Word and more of Your riches. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Wednesday and God Bless you.
