Is your Eye Good?

The Bible says that, “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.”  (Luke 11:34NKJV).

So, “if your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. And of your eye is bad, your body will be full of darkness!”.

What does this mean? Simply stated, a good eye sees the right things, allowing light and goodness to enter, making the person full of light ! On the contrary, if you don’t see well, you allow bad things and darkness to enter your life and make you full of  darkness !

An example in Genesis chapter 13 in the story of Abraham and Lot. 

Lot have bad eyes, he see things wrongly (from wrong perspective) and his life became full of darkness ! His bad eyes caused him to choose wrongly. On the other hand, Abraham have good eyes, he sees things correctly (from right perspective) and  filled with righteousness, goodness & light! Hence Abraham was able to see the right things and choose well.

As a result, Abraham did not choose the “good & fertile” Land but he chose What God has planned for him. As a result, God blessed him with all the good land ! But Lot chose the wrong land and landed in Sodom & Gomorrah! Lot’s life and his family is filled with trouble & evil!

Do you have good eyes? We need to have good eyes :

1)to see the right things

2)to be full of light (& not darkness)

3)to make the right choices In life

4)to please God and attract His favor and be successful In our life.

Is your life full of darkness? If you have bad eyes! You will see the wrong things and cause darkness to fill your life! And in darkness, you will not see very well and as a result you will make the wrong choices!

You can make a change today! Choose to apply the ointment of the Holy Spirit to your eyes, choose to allow God to clean and purify your eyes so that your eyes become good.

“So I advise you to buy gold from me—gold that has been purified by fire. Then you will be rich. Also buy white garments from me so you will not be shamed by your nakedness, and ointment for your eyes so you will be able to see. Revelation 3:18NLT

Genesis 13:14-17 (KJV): 

[14] And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: [15] For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. [16] And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered. [17] Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
