I have an eye exam scheduled for today. I prayed for healthy eyes . . . and now I am here. You know why don’t you?
My eye doctor can access the quality of my vision, he can measure eye pressure, he can prescribe corrective lenses to give me 20/20. And I am delighted and grateful that he can and I am expecting he will. But 20/20 and good eye pressure and no eye disease looking out this window onto my street is not all there is to healthy eyes. At least not for this present writing piece.
What about my soul sight? How does my soul see? Does my soul’s eyes have 20/20?
What about my spirit sight? How does my spirit see? Does my spirit’s eyes have 20/20? Tricky question, huh? We think the humble answer is no, right? But is it?
16 Now the glory of the Lord rested on Mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days. And on the seventh day He called to Moses out of the midst of the cloud. 17 The sight of the glory of the Lord was like a consuming fire on the top of the mountain in the eyes of the children of Israel. 18 So Moses went into the midst of the cloud and went up into the mountain. And Moses was on the mountain forty days and forty nights. source Exodus 24
If I were an artist I would draw their faces with larger than life opals and high-pitched brows and mouths making O shapes all around the camp. And quickly two hands covering faces of peeking amazement. Can you see it: the Hebrews in awe of the sight of the glory of GOD?
I’d like to gaze at this a while. LORD willing we will revisit this another day.
