“Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from your law.”

Psalm 119:18

When we first accept Christ, we see God everywhere. We see Him working in our lives and working in others. Then, as time goes on, our eyes get dull. He does not disappear or fall back into the shadows; we just do not see Him as much.

If we are not careful, we will not see God very much anymore. We have to be intentional about it. We have to retrain our eyes to look for evidences of God’s presence, not evidences of God’s absence. God is saying we have to recondition our eyes because He is everywhere.

Now, I have to admit that sometimes God is silent. There are times in my life when He seems silent. Yet, I know that when He is silent, it does not mean He is far away or He left on vacation. No, it means He is still doing something. When God seems silent, He is building something in us that can only be built in the silence.

God is never far from us. When there is a silence, He is building in us commitment and endurance because we are going to need that for our family, our career, our relationship and for ministry.

Let us recondition our hearts and cultivate a Spirit of gratitude; I think God is more concerned about our gratitude than just about anything else. When we have a spirit of gratitude, we see God everywhere; when we lose a spirit of gratitude we stop seeing God everywhere. It is not a gratitude that is in response to somebody doing good or giving us something; it is a spirit of gratitude whether something good happens or not.

A humble man is the one that will be sensitive to God and such will keep his heart pure. God is very concerned that our hearts stay protected and pure. Proverbs says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life” (Prov. 4:23).
