YOU ARE GOD’S EYES
By Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Memorise: “So shall they be life unto thy soul and grace unto thy neck” Proverbs 3:22
Read: Daniel 2:19-23
Bible in one year: Psalm 13-15
Prayer point: Father, thank You for making me Your eyes. Lord, help me to perform my role as Your eyes to the nations.
In Psalm 17:8, while receiving terrible attacks from deadly enemies, David asked God to protect him as the apple of His eyes. The eyes can serve as a window to the heart. To read a man’s heart, you do not need to look at his mouth but his eyes. Why? The mouth could be saying one thing but the eyes would be saying something different. Usually, what the eyes say is most likely true. In the same vein, God wants the world to read His mind by focusing or studying us believers His eyes. May you not fail God in this special assignment. In Genesis 41 :1 4-36, Pharaoh had dreams but needed the apple of God’s eyes —Joseph, to provide the interpretation. Similarly, King Nebuchadnezzar had dreams in Daniel 2:19-23, 4:19-27 and 5:10œ29, but could not interpret them until he looked at the apple of God’s eyes — Daniel. There are certain truths and understanding about God some people may never have until they set their eyes on you. But the question ¡s: when they look at you, will they be able to read the mind of God?
One of the duties of the Holy Spirit is to show us future events (John 1 6:1 3). He searches God’s heart and correctly reveals to us what God is thinking about us. Amos 3:7 says before God does a thing, He would have first revealed it to His prophets. If you want to know the mind of God concerning an issue, you will be required to look through His eyes — His prophets. This does not mean that until you are tagged a prophet before God can reveal His secrets to you. There are many people who have a close walk with God that receive more heavenly secrets than some who are called prophets and prophetesses. It you are truly saved, baptised in the Holy Spirit and you allow the Holy Spirit have His way in your life. Be prepared to share in His secrets. You are Gods eyes and just as tears flow through the eyes so does God want to express His feelings through us.
