If I look at this with my own understanding my view will be warped, skewed, darkness will prevail. If Satan can capture my gaze, fix my eyes on the world and my own perspective and understanding, my eye sight will be too poor to read God’s word with light. Bad, flawed eyesight fill with darkness so heavy, the soul aches. I must see this thru God’s perspective. Scriptural glasses, Biblical lenses. Without God’s word as a lens, the world warps. I must see this as God sees this…thru His eyes in order for there to be any light. Life is so much more than what we can see with our eyes. We need God’s eyes, his omniscient vision. Only God sees from beginning to end, we are only able to see the here and now, a narrow view of all that their truly is.
Matthew 6:22-23 The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
