Genesis 21:19 Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water. And she went and filled the skin with water, and gave the lad a drink.

INSIGHT -In Hebrew, eye is written as ayin & it means like, sight, look, displease, appearance, aperture, hole, observe, contemplate, gaze, guide -Hagar & Ishmael were in the wilderness of Beersheba when they used up the bread & water they were given by Abraham. Hagar lost hope & was waiting for Ishmael to die as she wept. The Lord heard her cry & opened her eyes to see a source of water.

PRAYER Open our spiritual eyes, Lord so that we may not miss the things You want to show us. May You open up for us more opportunities in our personal lives, families & as a nation as we remember how far we have come. Hear our petitions & reveal to us the source of water that we need most. Amen

Psalm 32:8-9 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Do not be like the horse or like the mule, Which have no understanding, Which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, Else they will not come near you.

INSIGHT -In Heb 3:7-8, The Holy Spirit says, Today if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in rebellion. -The Holy Spirit instructs & teaches us in the way we should go as He dwells within us & constantly communicates to our spirit. Therefore, we should seek understanding & be willing to do as He instructs.

PRAYER Holy Spirit our Helper, guide us always in the way we should go. Give us a heart of flesh so that we may be willing to follow Your voice of Truth within ourselves. May Your fruit & gifts be the eye of our hearts evident in us. Amen

Revelation 5:6-7 And I looked, and behold, in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as though it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent out into all the earth. Then He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him who sat on the throne.

INSIGHT -In Isaiah 11:2, The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. These are the seven Spirits of God represented by the horns & eyes of the Lamb also mentioned in Rev 4:5 as the Seven lamps.

PRAYER Impart in us the Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge & fear of the Lord; that we may share in Your grace, Father. Help us in all trials & needs in this life. May Your light shine into our hearts, soul & mind so that we can perceive all things with intelligence. Amen

Luke 11:34-35 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness.

INSIGHT -1 John 2:16, For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. -Our eyes cannot see anything unless there is light. What we see, choose to meditate on & store in our hearts, determines who we are.

PRAYER You are the light of the world, Jesus, fill us with Your love. May we always choose to keep You first in our hearts, souls & minds. Transform our minds, that we may prove what is Your good, acceptable & perfect will. May Your Kingdom come in our hearts as it is in heaven. Amen

Mark 8:23-25 So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.

INSIGHT -Jesus healed a blind man in Bethsaida (house of fruit). He first led him to another environment & after healing him he saw men as an economy/providers. He touched him again & he could see everyone with clarity. -God opens our eyes to see better opportunities even when in distress/ The Holy Spirit guides us with His eye by communicating to our spirit/ Seven horns & seven eyes of the Lamb represent the Seven Spirits of God/ our eyes are lamps to the bodies, when the eyes are good our bodies are filled with light.

PRAYER May we always depend on You, Father for all things. Impart in us Your Spirit of wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge & Your fear so that we may be spiritually & intellectually enlightened. May Your love be our source of light so that our bodies may be full of light as we share in Your grace. Amen

Our Father who at in heaven, Hallowed be thy name…
