When God Opens Your Eyes ( by Fenny West)

 

When God Opens Your Eyes

When God Opens Your Eyes

It surely will end your demise

And bring you into a realm that is high,

Untapped, unexplored and divine.

When God Opens Your Eyes

You will enter into a door

That will open other doors

As you are lifted from the floor.

When God Opens Your Eyes

You will bask in a summer

Of revelation knowledge-

Knowledge that surpasses knowledge

When God opens your eyes

You will see what others do not see

You will enter into a Land of Creativity

And inventions that are witty.

When God opens your eyes

You will see Jesus like Peter did

When he proclaimed:

 “You are the Christ,

the Son of the living God! (Matt16:16)

You will see Jesus as the Living Word-

God trapped in time, the Father in a body

Divinity in humanity.”

When God opens your eyes

You will see like the two men on the Road to Emmaus,

Who though initially blind had their eyes opened,

When the bread was broken. (Luke24:31)

When God opened your eyes

You may have been a persecutor of the Church

Blinded to your narrow-mindedness

But through His grace and kindness

You will see His brightness and will like Paul, and exclaim:

“Who are You, Lord?” when you are born again.(Acts9:5)

When God opens your eyes

You will be caught up into heavenly realms

And hear deep things,

hear deep calling unto deep

You will see the scriptures as never before

And be transformed inside out

As you enter the reality of:

“ in you, the hope of glory”

2Cor12:2,4,7, Col1:27

When God opens your eyes

You may have been blind to the reservoir,

oases or land opportunity around you

but He will cause you to see like He did Hagar

when she languished beside a well of water.

“Then God opened Hagar’s eyes,

 and she saw a well full of water.” Gen:21:19

When God opens your eyes

You will see pictures of your future

Like Abraham,

And as you embrace these pictures

And walk by faith, you will become what you saw.

 Gen15:5

Yes, when God opens your eyes

You will see what He sees concerning you

 in regard to your business, relationships, career,

 ministry, family and you will rejoice.

You will see through His eyes

And you will be elevated to a higher plane

 of praise and worship and thanksgiving.

When God opens your eyes

You will, despite the enemies surrounding you,

See like Prophet Elijah and his servant,

The angelic host on assignment on your behalf

and you will be at peace.2Ki6:17, Ps91:11-12, Ps34:7

When God opens your eyes

You will perceive rightly your divine visitation

And know want to do at the right time and with the right people

 like Abraham, and the children of

Issachar Gen.18, 1Chro12:32, Luke7:15-16

When God opens your eyes

You will see your purpose clearly like Joseph

And you will not be undaunted by any pit or prison

You are thrown into because you know:

 the palace will come in the fullness of time;

 your premiership will come in the fullness of time.

Gen41:41

When God opens your eyes,

Regardless of prisons or chains,

persecutions or disdains

rods or cords or conspiracies

accusations, famine, distress or nakedness,

 peril or sword, you will be able to say like Paul:

 24          But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.Acts20:24

31           What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32           He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

33           Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.

34           Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

35           Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

36           As it is written: ” For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

37           Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38           For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39           nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Ro8:31-39

When God opens your eyes

You will pursue your purpose despite opposition, difficulties or ridicule like Nehemiah. You will set your face like a flint and stand against ‘your Sanballat and Tobias and others’, until you finish your assignment. 15       So the wall was finished Neh:6:15

You will not be distracted by their trickery, blackmail or effrontery.

When God opens your eyes

You will see the urgency of the times in which you are and rise up to fulfil vision like Esther, knowing that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this. You will rise up as a soldier of Christ and be counted. You will be relevant wherever you are and wherever you go. You will employ all your time treasure and talent for the extension of the kingdom of God. “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

Esther4:14

When God opens your eyes

You will see like Daniel what is holding the promises of God and intercede and break any barriers and birth your miracle, birth a New Dawn, birth a New Day and birth a New Era. Dan9:1-4

I pray 17          that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him,

18           the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

19           and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power

20           which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

21           far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

22           And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church,

23           which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

I pray that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man,

17           that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love,

18           may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height —

19           to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

20           Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,

21           to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.Eph3:16-21

By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones),Eph1:18

 

 

 

Jesus Had a Purpose

Jesus  had purpose

And a focus-

A priorityhappy new year

Saving of lost souls

He lived for is purpose

Prepared for His purpose

Sacrificed for His purpose

Faced His purpose

Embraced the purpose

Pursued His purpose

Fulfilled that purpose.

So should you and I.

Full of the word

He had heard,

Eaten as His food

Drank as His drink,

He avoided distractions

Endured opposition

Depended on His Father

To walk on water

In the Spirit’s power

And so could tower

Higher and higher.

So should you and I.

In this New Year, Lord, open my spiritual eyes to see my purpose- its height, breadth, length, depth.

May I embrace this purpose like Jesus embraced His purpose. Help me, Lord .to prepared for my purpose, live for my purpose, sacrifice for my purpose, be prepared to suffer for my purpose and pursue that purpose until it is finished with finesse, In Jesus’ Name. Amen

 

Luke 15: The Parable of the Lost Sheep

1     Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him.

2     And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.”

3     So He spoke this parable to them, saying:

4     “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he loses one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost until he finds it?

5     And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

6     And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!’

7          I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

Luke15:1-7
