When our hearts are humble toward God and others, they’re open to truth. Yet, when we believe our own wisdom (pride) is sufficient for the issues of life, our hearts become closed. Humility and pride determine the openness of our heart.
- Do you want the eyes of your heart open to His truth, grace and forgiveness?
- Do you want the eyes (of your heart) focused
and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is He is calling you to do, (to) grasp the immensity of the glorious way of life he has for Christians (Eph 1:18 The Message – emphasis added)
- Do you desire a heart that is open wide to His wonderful purposes?
The wonders in life you have for me;
That darkness would fade and glory would rise
That life would spring forth and Jesus surprise.
The love you send forth, from heaven bestow;
A love that is filling, both fresh and free
A love that is real and so near to me.
Not things of the world, where so often I’ve been.
That life may fill up and grace may abound
When truth hits my ears, I’ll cherish it’s sound.
Have often been shut to block out the wise;
So open me up and pour Yourself in
That I may live and let others see Him.
Lord, please open the eyes of my heart today, so I may may know you more clearly, love you more dearly, and follow you more nearly, day by day. Lord, help me to humble myself to see myself as truly needing You. May You grant this to me this very day oh Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
