MONDAY 4TH JANUARY 2016
TOPIC: OPEN MY EYES
FOCUS SCRIPTURE: Genesis 21:19
“And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink”
It is so amazing that with the aid of optical instruments our range of sight can be enlarged, wonderful discoveries are made and the natural eyes can see what it could not see at first.
The focal scripture for today’s devotional tells us that God opened the eyes of Hagar and she saw a well. It is important to note that Hagar did not see this well of water previously, hence in Genesis 21:16, she abandoned her child in frustration when she ran out of water for him, then went and stood far off because she did not want to see his death.
The truth of this story is that what Hagar needed for the sustenance of her baby was within her reach but she could not see it. It was not until her eyes were opened that she was able to see what she could not see initially.
Friends, hear what God is saying to us today, that He has given us everything we need for living a truly good life and those things are within us. It only takes the opening of our eyes to see these things.
My prayer is that God will open your eyes to see everything He has placed within and around you to have a fruitful life in 2016 in Jesus name.
Pray With Me
Lord, open my eyes that I may see the wonderful opportunities you have placed within my life in Jesus name
Have a blessed day!
