Do not Let His Word Depart from Your Eye

Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. - Proverbs 4:21

Proverbs 4:21 says that a major recipe for total victory (in health, prosperity, preservation, protection etc.) is having the word of God before your eyes. This is talking about keeping your vision fixed on Jesus and his word. Peter lost the manifestation of his miracle even in the presence of Jesus because he shifted his eyes from Jesus to look at the negative circumstances around him (Matthew 14:29-30)

There are too many things that demand your attention, but if you desire God's abundant blessings, you then must make his WORD the focus of your life. You will need to read and see the promises of God every day from the pages of the Bible. This will keep your vision of his almightiness afresh in your heart every day.

The vision of God is the revelation of his divine purpose, and until your Bible is before your eyes, circumstances will still look like mountains to you. One other thing that can keep the word off your eyes is your association. An association does not leave you the way it meets you. It can take you off the purpose of God. David said in Psalm 119:63, “I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and of them that keep thy precepts.” David was saying here that his companion loved his word as much as he loved it. You need people around you who understand the centrality of the word as much as you do. Be careful to choose your friends wisely. Learn to walk with people who walk with the Lord and his word.

Prayer: O Lord, anoint my spiritual eyes and give me understanding so as to see what you have prepared for me in destiny. I receive the Spirit of boldness and all wisdom so that my glorious destiny will be accomplished in Jesus name
