Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! Matthew 6:22-23 (NLT)
Walk In The Light
Do you want to live in the light with me? Do you want to separate yourself from the darkness of this world? Do you want to walk in the light with me? Yes, I want to live and walk in the light with you. Yes, I want to separate myself from the darkness of this world. How can I live and walk in the light with you? That is a very good question. It is a question to always keep before you. Why is that? Living and walking in the light with me will require an ongoing decision on your part that you will need to continually affirm as you follow me. I’m not understanding. You must keep on guarding what you allow your eyes to see as you follow me. You must keep on deciding to walk away from darkness as you focus your heart and mind and life on me. Why must I continue to affirm this decision? Why isn’t a one-time decision for all my life enough? You live in a world filled with darkness. Darkness surrounds you. Darkness will attempt to alure and entice you. Darkness will try to distract and divert you and throw your life off course. These attacks will come through what you allow your eyes to see. These attacks will come against you throughout your entire life. You must resist them. You must stand against them. You must fight against them. The only way to be victorious over the darkness in this world is by continually keeping your heart and mind and life focused on me. Keep on seeing what I want you to see. What do you want me to see? I want you to see me. I want you to see where I am leading you. I want you to see me working in and through you. I want you to see my hand on your life. I want you to see my blessing and favor resting on you. I want you to see my word changing your heart, transforming your mind, and guiding your life. I want you to see that you are bearing fruit for my kingdom and bringing glory to my name. I want you to see that you are a bright and shinning witness for me in the darkness of this world. Do you want to see what I want you to see? Yes Lord, I do. I will keep on guarding what I allow my eyes to see so I can live and walk in the light with you. That will be very good.
Lord, I will guard my eyes from seeing what will bring darkness into my life. I will choose to see what you want me to see. I will turn from darkness to live in your light. Daily, I will see your word changing my heart, transforming my mind, and guiding my life. Amen
