Dr. David Jeremiah Daily Devotional September 30 2022 :
Theme : A Fresh Pair of Eyes.
Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.
Recommended Reading: Acts 9:17-19
When we think of things out of focus, we think of pictures and videos. But what about eyesight? Many people in biblical days were nearsighted or farsighted, and there was nothing they could do about it. It was like watching an out-of-focus film every waking moment. The earliest attempts to create eyeglasses didn’t occur until the 1200s. What if we had to go through life with everything out of focus?
Going through life without worship is like living with blurred vision. We can neither see nor understand things clearly. Our wisdom is indistinct, and our perspective is fuzzy.
When we acknowledge God for Who He is, find Him through Jesus Christ as our Savior, and begin to worship Him, it’s like scales falling from our eyes. That’s how Luke described the conversion of Saul of Tarsus in Acts 9.
Worshiping God each day means focusing on Him, letting Him give us the vision and perspective we need. Turn your mind toward Jesus and learn to think on Scripture as you go to sleep, wake up, and go through your day.
Take time to focus your heart and your thoughts on the Lord.
