Tuesday In Other Words   10 comments



This week, Heather is hosting “In ‘Other’ Words” at her site, Mommy Monk. She has chosen the following quote by Hellen Keller: 

“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.”

There have been so many times in my own spiritual walk that this quote described me perfectly.  It all happens when we take our eyes off our Savior.  If you are lacking vision in your own life or know of someone who is lacking it in their own life, I challenge you to pray the following scripture for yourself or for someone needing some vision…

Ephesians 1:15 For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. 17I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. 18I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, 19and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

So this is what I would pray starting at verse 17:

Lord Jesus Christ, my glorious Father, please give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that I may know you better. I pray also that the eyes of my heart may be enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which you have called me, the riches of your glorious inheritance in the saints (me included), and your incomparable great power for me as a believer. Amen.

Ask God to open the eyes of your heart today and then continue to focus on Jesus.
