Open my eyes

Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
-Psalm 119:18

We underestimate the power made available to us when we spend time with God. Have you ever thought to yourself how powerful our God actually is?

 

It’s time to stop feeling guilty and I’ll-equipped and start embracing the incredible privilege of meeting with Jesus every day. Most days before I start my time with the Lord, I pray a very simple prayer, that puts my heart into the right place with God.


God, I want to see you. God, I want to hear you. God, I want to know you. So that I can follow hard after you.

This prayer is not a magic formula, just four short sentences that perfectly express my desire to experience God throughout my day.

I want to see him working in me, around me, and through me. 

I want to hear his voice so clearly that I won’t doubt when he ask for my obedience.

I want to know him- not just facts about him- but really know him personally and intimately.

I want to follow hard after him, to be the woman he wants me to be in every circumstance of my day.

I don’t want to just read and pray to check it off my to-do list. In Psalm 119:18 “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law” A request God delights in answering.
