Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law.Psalm 119:18 NKJV
Open: denude, uncover
See: look intently at, to regard with pleasure, have respect
Wondrous: to be surpassing, extraordinary
Law: Torah, precept or statute
How often do I read Scripture, with my eyes covered? Covered by my ideas of what Scripture should mean. Covered by my limited understanding of a holy God. Covered by my selective memory and opinion. Covered by my circumstances. Covered by my sin.
How often do I read Scripture with a prayer that my eyes would be "denude" so that I can see God's Truth? How often do I read scripture looking intently with respect at what God says?
How often do I see God's extraordinary, surpassing anything I could image..... truth in Scripture?
How often, when I do see the extraordinary truth, do I let it impact my life?
My prayer...... Open my eyes, that I may see Wondrous things from Your law. Psalm 119:18
