SEE EVERYTHING THROUGH THE EYES OF GOD’S WORD
God’s word is often referred to as ‘light’ in the Bible. Once King David said; your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.
One unique thing about light is that it determines how things appear when you look at a thing.
Have you entered a clothing store that had a coloured bulb? Maybe a blue or red bulb..? When you buy something inside it looks a certain way but when you take it outside the store and look at the cloth you bought under natural sunlight it looks different.
I know I’ve been there, I once bought a purple jean thinking it was a black jean. It was when I had almost reached home that I just decided to peep into the bag and admire what I bought because I was so excited, only to discover it was a purple jean in my bag. It wasn’t a funny experience. It’s things like that that cause pre-mature heart attacks (Just kidding! About the heart attacks).
Anyway, it’s that way with everything else in life. Without the light that is God’s word. You are seeing things the way I saw them while inside that store, but when you look at things through the eyes of God’s word, you are like the fellow who wisely takes the cloth out of the store to see it under natural sunlight 1st, before he buys the cloth.
Now, the big question is, “How do you look at things through the eyes of God’s word?”
Simple. You look at things through the eyes of God’s word by seeing things to be what the Bible or God says it is.
With everything in life, the only way you can see something as what it truly is, is to see it as what God says it is.
Jesus said he is the truth, And since Jesus is the WORD. Made flesh, that means the word is truth.
Therefore, anything you see outside (the light) the eyes of God’s word is a LIE.

PRAYER OF SALVATION:
If you’ve been touched by what you just read and you’ve never given your heart to Jesus and would love to become a Christian, please say this prayer and mean it with all your heart :
“Oh Lord God, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ. Your word says, ‘… whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved’ ( Acts 2:21 )
I ask Jesus to come into my heart to be the lord of my life. I receive eternal life into my spirit and according to Romans 10:9, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved, “I declare that I am saved; I am born – again; I am a child of God! I now have Christ dwelling in me, and greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world! ( 1 John 4:4 ). I now walk in the consciousness of my new life in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!”
PRAYER TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT:
“Oh Father, I thank you now for making me born again. For making me you child.
I ask that you give me your Holy Spirit to live in me and with me. For your word says that you would freely give the Holy Spirit to all those who ask. I open my heart and receive and I know by faith that you have given me your Holy Spirit. Thank you Father. In Jesus name. Amen.
CONGRATULATIONS! YOU ARE NOW A CHILD OF GOD. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY OF GOD.
