A Life that Sees Clearly

We all want to see clearly in life. We don’t want to hope that we are doing life right and making the best decisions. We want to see clearly. Just as when we walk in this world, we need light to see clearly so we will not stumble and hurt ourselves, in the same way, as we walk through life we need to see clearly so we will not experience unnecessary pain.

Psalm 36:9 For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light.

In God’s light we see light and understand. Jesus is the Light of the world and it is in His light that we see clearly.

John 1:9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.

Everyone lives in a certain amount of spiritual darkness before a person turns to the Lord. There is a veil, or a covering, over our hearts that does not allow us to see clearly, to hear clearly and to understand. We stumble through life only guessing and hoping that we are making the right decisions or we allow life to carry us wherever it happens to take us and the end is never good.

II Corinthians 3:16 but whenever a person turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.

When the veil over our hearts is taken away then we can see clearly and understand. Those who have not turned to the Lord, the Gospel is still veiled to them and they can not see clearly or hear the Lord calling to them so that they might turn to Him. They are blinded, living in darkness, unbelieving and perishing.

II Corinthians 4:3,4 And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

The Lord is the One who shines in our hearts so that we might see Him and know Him. The Lord says that “knowledge of the Holy One is understanding”. When we come to know Him then we understand life and we no longer walk in the darkness but walk in the light.

II Corinthians 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

What an incredible promise that He has given to those who receive Him and follow Him as His disciples.

John 8:12 Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

When I was younger I read in the Bible that the Lord came to give me an abundant life and also that if I would trust Him then I would never be disappointed. These were incredible promises and so I decided to see if they were true. That was almost fifty years ago. What I have written are the truths that the Lord has taught me through His Word and I found them to be true every time. The Bible is the lecture and life is the lab. If a truth does not hold up in the lab then it can not be counted on. Every one was true and I have sought to build my life on these truths. We have a family business and four adult children. I wish that I could give my life to everyone but since I can't, I can share the truths that kept me from needless stress and pain. My marriage is the closest thing to heaven on earth. We are more "in love" than ever before and our children bring us great joy. I realize that not everyone will agree with everything that is written. I did not always agree either until I put it to the test. The Bible says that "wisdom will be vindicated by her deeds". The fruit from these truths have been sweet for me. May you be richly blessed as I have been. If you are struggling with life or with finding and keeping love in your life then please consider reading these posts. They have been tested and are true.
