In His Light

“For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.”

            Psalms 36:9 NIV

By Angel Diane-Author/Speaker

 

When I see anything that is tall, short, heavy, light, deep, shallow, pleasing, or unpleasing, I should see it in the light of my creator, the one true God.

God intended for all His children to see things through the lens of His truth, love, peace, and joy. He never planned for us to have to see through the lens of abuse, fear, jealousy, or greed.

Matthew 6:22-23 says that our eyes are the lamp and window to our soul in the spiritual view. It explains that if our eyes are healthy, they display a “whole body is healthy” signal. It also says that if our eyes are not healthy, then our bodies “live in darkness.”

Taking our eyes for granted physically and allowing the sun to glare into them, constantly rubbing them from wind or dirt invasion, and even getting into fist fights, etc, can cause damage that sometimes cannot be corrected. Our eyes need rest, vitamins, moisture, and protection from the elements.

But when I read that scripture that says, “I will see the light in your (God’s) light,” ...it reminds me that my eyes need spiritual nourishment and protection as well.

Reading scripture is a beautiful way to nourish our eyes spiritually.

I believe that it is emotionally and physically pleasing to the eye to read something encouraging, informative, and enlightening. I have also found that it brings healing to my soul when I read a true statement.

The word of God is truth (John 17:17), and when we read it, it carries out a beautiful work in us. It brings a fountain of life to a dry, thirsty place and helps us see the truth of every situation in the light of God’s love.
