Vision Test

My daughter was getting ready for school this week, when I noticed her glasses laying on the coffee table, smudged and smeared beyond belief. She quickly removed them from my grasp and placed them on her face.

“How can you possibly see anything out of those?” I asked, removing them again to clean.

“I can see just perfectly, Mom,” she said.

Just perfectly. Ah, yes . . . How many times I have thought the very same thing. “I can see just perfectly.”

Have you ever looked into an antique mirror? The image is quite distorted versus what we see in a mirror today. Yet, imagine what God sees when He looks at you.

Do you ever say to Him in prayer, “Here are my requests. If You will please answer these, my life will be so much better!” What you are really doing is saying, “I can see just perfectly, Lord,” as you remove your smudged, filthy glasses from His precious hand of cleansing.

I Corinthians 13:12 says, “Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.”
We can and should ask God to clean our glasses. He can and will give us clarity in every area of our thought life if we will simply trust Him and allow Him to do it.

May you have your vision tested by the Master, may you allow Him to clean your glasses, and may you have the best week you've ever had in your life.
