Luke 11:34-35 (KJV) 34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.
35 Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness.
Let’s discuss just what the light of the body is and how do we walk in that light.
Light in the Word of God refers to illumination, revelation, and insight into the things of God. When we have that, all else fades in comparison. So just how do we accomplish getting full of the light of God so that no darkness can overrule us?
As you know from the Word, Jesus used natural things to explain spiritual things. So let’s do that.
Have you ever been around people who had so much passion for their hobbies that they talked almost nonstop about them? I think we all know people like that. That’s an example of being full of something—their passion for their hobbies or interests. That’s what they’re focused on and that’s what comes out of them whenever they get the chance to share. You can say their whole body is full of their hobbies, interests, etc.
That’s what we’re talking about. What you focus on is what you will be full of, whether it’s good or evil. That’s what will come out when you open your mouth. If we focus on the problems of life, that’s what we’ll be full of and it will hinder our faith. However, if we focus on the promises of God and His Word, that’s what we’ll be full and that’s what will bring victory.
Darkness is evil and will negate your faith. You can’t pray for victory and focus on defeat. It doesn’t work that way. Remember when God told Abram (Abraham) that everything his eye could see would be his? Well, it’s the same today. Whatever you can “see” in the Word, you can have as your very own. God is no respecter of persons. If He did it for one, He’ll do it for you but you must first “see” it in your mind’s eye—the eye of faith.
The whole point I’m making is that it’s extremely important what you focus on and what you give your attention to. That’s what determines what is in you in abundance and that’s what will come out. For certain, you want the Word of God to come out in faith in whatever situation arises. That’s what will put you over and give you the victory! Praise the Lord of Glory for His unspeakable gift to us!
Genesis 13:14-15 (KJV) 14 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward:
15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
Romans 2:11 (KJV) 11 For there is no respect of persons with God.
