Daily Read – Exodus 28:1-43; Matthew 25:31-26:13; Psalm 31:9-18; Proverbs 8:12-13
Then the righteous will answer Him, saying,
'Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?'
And the King will answer and say to them,
'Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one
of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.'
Surrender your eyes to Me, watch as the scenery changes and transforms right before your eyes. In a suddenly, all things in your world becomes crystal-clear and in focus. The veil of flesh that once clouded your vision in a self-absorbed existence gives way to an exciting observation of life through My eyes of compassion and self-less love.
Your eyes will penetrate into the hearts of people rather than landing in judgment on outward appearances. At this point, something awesome transpires; you see Me in every person you meet.
You see me in the face of the hopeless teenage boy locked up in the detention center. As you feed the homeless man, you will catch a glimpse of Me in his grateful smile. You will be startled as you dry the tears of the young unwed mother, for you will see My reflection in her eyes.
Yes, your vision drastically changes, but so does your heart! Life's purpose suddenly takes on a new meaning, a deeper meaning.
You come to realize that you are no longer the center of the universe with all things revolving around you and your problems, but life's view broadens into a much more beautiful picture....a picture of Me.
Each time you touch the hurting to bring comfort, you touch Me. For every earthly action, there is a heavenly reaction. There is a close relationship between heaven and earth, much more than you even know.
How can you bless Me today?
I am sending them to you...open your eyes to see!
My prayer today comes from a well-known song
Open My eyes Lord I want to see Jesus
To reach and touch Him, to tell Him I love Him.
Open My ears Lord and help me to listen
Open my eyes Lord I want to see Jesus.
