God has really been up to something lately. Not that He isn’t always working and doing stuff in our lives, I just think I have been more aware of the miraculous because I have made a conscious choice to expect miracles each and every day. I love how Matthew 6:22-23 reads in the Message translation, “Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!”
So are you waking up in the morning just wishing the day was over, wishing you didn’t have to go to work, wishing things were different in your life? Have you thought about asking the Lord to help you change your outlook on life? If you are always looking at what is not right in your life, then you are living with permanent tunnel vision. You are shutting out expectation and hope by choosing to ponder your present circumstances. Ask the Lord to change your view. Ask Him to open your eyes to see what He sees. Ask Him to give you a fresh sense of expectancy every morning when you wake up. Miracles are happening all around you, but if you don’t believe that a miracle can happen in your situation then you just got what you wished for — NOTHING!
So today, choose to expect miracles, signs, and wonders. Open your eyes and let the Light shine in!
