Can’t You See? (Psalm 119:18)

Open your eyes!  Can’t you see?  These are common phrases that we use when we speak to people as they struggle either to see something physically in front of them or to recognize a truth or principle.

What stops people from being able to see?  It isn’t always their eyes.  Sometimes people can’t see something because they are focusing in the wrong direction or their ability to see is blocked.

“Open thou mine eyes”, means to denude the eyes.  The psalmist is asking God to remove from his eyes what is causing him not to see things from his law.  

If you can’t see what God is doing in your life, ask him to make your eyes nude or completely uncovered.  Hurt, sorrow, fear, bitterness, confusion and worry can block your spiritual eye sight.  We cannot remove what causes these emotions, but God can strip them from our eyes and show us truth that we need to gain victory.
