Open Thou Mine eyes

Open thou mine eyes, That I may behold wondrous things out of thy law (Psalm 119:18 KJV)

We all want to succeed or prosper in everything we do. Let me continue this new year series today and share with you divine secrets in the Word for us to make it big time God’s way this year. As I shared previously, the hand is a symbol of power to do or accomplish something. Therefore, we can talk of God’s hands, though He does not have physical hands as we do. How does God operate? Find out below, and that is how you should operate this year!

Two virtues govern both physical and spiritual operations. They are wisdom and power or, in more simple terms, knowledge, and ability. Wisdom has to do with knowledge of realities. God has absolute knowledge of all things, and that is why His wisdom is perfect, and He cannot make a mistake. He knows all things past, present, and future. In the spiritual realm, wisdom or knowledge is often represented by eyes. In fact, spiritual eyes in the scriptures has to do with insight or knowledge of divine things.

The Psalmist prayed above, asking the Lord to open his eyes. He was not physically blind. He was asking for insight or understanding into the knowledge of divine realities. Knowledge governs the spiritual world. I cannot emphasize this enough. New doors open as your spiritual eyes open. Some of you read this, and all you need is for your eyes to be open, and your finances, health, spiritual life, ministry, etc. will take a dramatic upward turn.

May the Lord open your eyes this year!


Was the Psalmist in Psalms 119 above asking for healing of his physical eyes?


This devotional is too brief to fully explain what spiritual eyes are. I have written extensively about spiritual eyes and highly encourage you to read these short articles here. This is the summary: if you want to have exploits with God this year, your eyes need to be opened.


Pray the Psalmist’s prayer above and ask the Lord to open your eyes as in Ps. 119:18 above.
