Open my Eyes

By January 28, 2013 No Comments

Who do you see?
Hindsight is perfect.
Foresight is profound.
20:20 sight is preferred.
Insight is priceless.
A person doesn’t require natural sight to have supernatural insight. Ask the Lord to, “Open my eyes to see.” To see the potential in me, and the possibilities in others around me.
John 4:7-26 is the longest recorded conversation that Jesus had with anyone in the New Testament. His interaction is a model for us. Jesus knew his potential – he knew who he was and that made him secure. Insecurity breeds fear and makes us judgmental. When you are secure, God can give you insight into others. Insight frees us to accept others just as they are, without judgment and with understanding.
Jesus absolutely accepted the woman he spoke with. He freed her to accept herself and then believe on him. Their conversation revealed differences in religious perspectives, but what mattered most was Jesus won her with love. He worked to help his disciples see what he saw by saying, “Open your eyes and look at the fields. They are ready for harvest.”
North Pointe’s vision is to see a personal relationship with Jesus begin and grow in dozens if not hundreds of people through NP this year.
Ask the Lord to give you foresight and insight to win others with love.
Let us know you will pray, everyday, “Open my eyes to see.”
