The Eyes Tells Secrets

Luke 11:34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be just as full of light as when a lamp shines its light on you.”

The eye is the window to the soul I hear this very often. Also, what we see with our eyes is a pointer to the state of our soul.

You can see love by just looking into someone’s eyes or hate as the case may be. You can see sorrow and despair in the eyes without a single drop of tear. I have been seeing beauty in a different dimension since the Corona Virus changed our world. I will look at old wrinkly faces and see love, compassion, kindness, strength, gentleness, calmness, and can even imagine stories of what these eyes can tell.

At dinner on my birthday a few days back my son leaned over to me and he whispered she is beautiful mummy. I was taken aback and looked at him, asking how do you know, because the waiter had mask on. He responded, her eyes mummy!. You see, our eyes says so much more than we would like others to know about us.

Also what you see is a reflection of the state of your heart and soul. To many people, nothing looks beautiful to them. Everything is ugly, dark, and worthless. This is the state of their being and has nothing to do with the object of their sight/wrath.

To some everything is in $$$ sign, not that this is a bad thing. However, when every relationship, every alliance, every activity, action, reaction, endeavour, and opportunities are all in $$$ sign, that is a problem. This means mammon has taken over!

To such people money is what dictates their love, friendship, kindness, alliances, interactions, respect, and regards. They can and will do anything for $$$. There profession of faith is directly proportional to their finances, and you are only as good a being as the amount of dollar they think you can bring, yield, or give to them.

I pray that we will all take note of what our Lord Jesus said, ” See to it, then that the light within you is not darkness – Luke 11:35; and pray for a renewing of our minds so our eyes can truly see Christ Jesus as He is, and His presence in the lives of the people around us.

Shalom!

Discernment! Two Way Mirror!

The gift of discernment does not only tell you about truth and lies, it also tells you about situations unfolding before you, or about people, what they are saying, the lie and acts put out, versus who they really are. Their motives!

Discernment may be a burden if handled by self! It is a gift of the spirit and should be treated as such.

Discernment also checks the discerning, it reveals to you your own motives, errors or what not. This helps you to treat your own illness – remove the log from your own eyes, and to be understanding, forgiving and less critical of others.

However, being able to smell a lie, see, hear and discern duplicity and inauthenticity a mile away, will alter your action and reaction to a situation. You can see the game playing right before your eyes. It may become difficult to keep a straight face and allow the Spirit to work it out! Ask for grace here!

Jesus Christ knew Judas was a thief, yet He put him in charge of the ministry’s finance. Jesus knew he will betray him, yet he kept him close – John 12:5-6, John 13:28-29, Luke 22:3

If you and I hear what is not spoken, see what is invisible, like an X-ray eye, will we be able to look people in the face? Look at ourselves?

I guess not! Purge, therefore, the evil from within and among you says the Lord!

We all, therefore, need to cultivate the presence of the Holy Spirit, to help us in the renewing of our minds.

May the fire of the Holy Spirit purify our hearts, body, and soul! Only then can we really be a living sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Faulty Structure Reined In! Holy Spirit!

I was praying yesterday and I blurted out some words that made me start thinking about what I was actually saying! You know like, “where did that come from?”.

It was a personal prayer about this and that. Just having fellowship with my Father and then I was led to touch on some other stuff, which led to this prayer:

Father every structure that has been put in place by the devil in and around the hearts of men and women, around and in the body of believers that is mitigating against your plan and purpose to bring in much more people into the sheepfold, let such structure be destroyed today in Jesus mighty name. You stated in Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. Whatever is not of you in and around me, and all must come down Lord!

Like the wall of Jericho fell down flat – Joshua 6:20, Hebrew 11:30, Oh Lord, every invincible barrier mounted to keep as many as you have called to possess the gift of Salvation, may those walls fall down flat in Jesus name. Every wall, every barrier standing between your breakthrough in all areas of your life must come down in Jesus mighty name.

Every plant that you have not planted in and around your body, the body of believers, Father Lord, let it be uprooted in Jesus name.

Then I thought about what I was saying and realized that, while men slept, the enemy came in and sowed tares Matthew 13:24-30. Tares of disharmony, hatred, greed, pride, anger, jealousy, envy, distrust, suspicion, confusion, and all sort of evil, so much so that in order to “protect ourselves” we think, that is, maintain the status quo, we build walls to take charge, to be in control, thereby relegating the Holy Spirit to the back bench of our life.  We go ahead many times, ignore and sideline the Will of the Father many a time.

Every tare, every error, lies – deception of the enemy, sown into my life,  family,  local assembly, denomination and the entire Church of the living God, be uprooted in Jesus name. Holy Spirit have your way, take the rein of my life, our life, family, Church, move like never before in Jesus name. Let thy kingdom come Oh Lord!

Yielded life

There are so many tares in your life and mine if we want to be honest about it. There is stuff that we would rather do without that is holding on, weighing down, hindering, limiting our highest self in living and breathing Christ. Many are destined to be an evangelist, pastors, missionary, God’s battle ax,  but are unable to reach even their own family for Christ this moment. Why so? Why? While we were unaware, thinking we had everything under control, reined in, the enemy planted trees, shrubs, and the likes to distract us and ruin our testimony.

Will you go to the Lord in prayer today and ask Jesus to step in and touch every area of your life? Ask for forgiveness! Forgiveness of thinking you can hold the rein and be led by the Holy Spirit.

Lord Jesus forgive me and my friends for every form of unrighteousness in our thoughts, words, and actions, in what we have done and those we have failed to do.  Please, Lord, we welcome you into our hearts, our lives, have your way in us. Take the rein Father, and lead us to do that which is of your great pleasure we pray in Jesus mighty name. Thank you, Lord, for answers for we know you have heard our sincere cry for help. Be magnified Oh Lord.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
