Today's Thoughts: Seeing Jesus
When they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no one but Jesus only. Matthew 17:8
Have you ever gazed upon something so spectacular that you lost yourself in the moment? The beauty of God’s creation can bring such moments. I remember the first time I stood on the ledge of the
What will it be like in that day when we stand before Jesus and we lift up our eyes to see Him? How can such beauty and glory even be imagined? As the song says, “I can only imagine.” On earth we are limited in these physical bodies. There are those who have no sight, having never seen anything through their eyes. Countless others will lose their sight for various reasons. And, most of the rest of us will lose components of our vision, whether near-sighted, far-sighted or color. Age has a way of dimming the lights of life. But one day, those of us who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior will see “no one but Jesus only.” In that day, there will be no physical limitations to keep us from seeing our Jesus, in splendor and majesty more breathtaking than anything we have ever seen on this earth.
Today, take a moment and thank the Lord for what you can see here on this earth. Ask the Lord to keep you from seeing the things that do not glorify Him. Our eyes are the windows to the world and we need to guard what we allow them to look upon. Open God’s word today, then read and meditate upon the scriptures. Then close your eyes and ask the Lord to show you what He wants you to see. Spend time in prayer and lose yourself in a moment of being in His presence. Turn your eyes upon Jesus today and let Him show you what He wants you to see.
