“Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things.” Ps 119:18 NIV

One day Elisha and his servant awoke to find the house they were in surrounded by an army of enemy soldiers. His servant panicked and asked, “What are we going to do?” So Elisha prayed, “Lord, open his eyes so he may see” (2Ki 6:17 NIV). Suddenly he saw their enemies surrounded by an even bigger army of angels. On their way home to Emmaus Cleopas and his companion were heartbroken because Jesus, the One in whom they’d placed their hopes, had been crucified and buried. Out of nowhere a stranger joined them on their journey, and when they reached home they invited him to stay for supper. As he prayed and pronounced a blessing over their meal, the eyes of Cleopas and his companion were opened and they recognized that the stranger was none other than Jesus Himself (See Lk 24:13-35). A man on a commuter train kept gazing out the window and saying, “Wonderful; just wonderful!” What was he looking at? Run-down apartment buildings and trash spilling over onto the sidewalk! After hearing him say “Wonderful” four or five times the lady beside him remarked, “It doesn’t look too wonderful to me.” Whereupon the man replied, “I’ve been blind for the past thirty years. But through the skill of a surgeon, the generosity of a donor, and a corneal transplant, I’ve been given the gift of two new eyes. And to me, everything I see is wonderful.” Grumbling blinds you to God’s blessings, but gratitude opens your eyes to enjoy them. So today, ask the Lord to open your eyes to all the “wonderful things” that surround you.
