#4 - SPIRITUAL SIGHT

Christmas Eve-Eve as I dressed for church I felt the need to confess. What could be so pressing that I would wake up during one of the best times of the year burdened with the need to confess? Judgment! I heard the Lord clearly say to me that morning as I woke up, “Do not judge what I am doing by what you see!” Wow, that’s a loaded statement, one that I am guilty of. So, on my knees at the altar I prayed and asked the Lord for forgiveness not only for myself, but for the body of Christ as a whole.

Let’s enhance our spiritual sight this year by NOT judging what He is doing by what we see and seeking to gain His perspective before coming up with one of our own. After all we are no longer blinded by the god of this world. May He open the eyes of our understanding in 2008 – the Year of New Beginnings!

Wow! That is so true and I am so guilty. Sometimes I feel God is not working on something because I don't see what I want to see. However - my vision isn't his. Thanks for repeating this one, as I didn't see it the first time around.

How true that we can be so spiritually shortsighted. Father, forgive us. His ways aren't our ways. Thank God His ways are bigger and better, having our best interest at heart. May we walk by faith and not by sight. Putting my shoes on now...
