Open Your Eyes!!

Journal entry January 23, 2017

Time and time again, Christ proves Himself as faithful. Too often, we are like the Jews in John 12:27:

"But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him".

Although we have witnessed His great majesty, we still lack faith. We grow in doubt instead of sprouting in faith. Because the Lord is good, He still chases us. He continues revealing Himself. He seeks us even when we are oblivious. He wants us to pursue Him, as well:

Jeremiah 29: 13 // "When we seek Him with all of our heart, we will find Him".

He desires the chase. He desires for us to OPEN OUR EYES!! He never fails us. Ever. Ever. Never. Ever. Over and over, God fulfills His promises.

He fulfilled the promise of freeing the Israelites.

He fulfilled the promise of the Promise Land.

He fulfilled the promise of His Son being birthed by a virgin.

He fulfilled the promise of breaking our chains through the cross.

He fulfilled the promise of the Resurrection.

He will continue fulfilling the promise of comfort through our grief, peace through our heart ache, grace through trials, love through emptiness, and eternity through it all. Even when our eyes cannot see, He will fulfill His unbroken promises.

John 11: 42 // "And I knew that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me."

He uses circumstances to open the blind eyes to His great name.
