This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Oswald Chambers. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Oswald” in the search box to read more entries.
New Eyes Of Grace
Wherever the grace of God works effectually in a man’s inner nature, his nervous system is altered and the external world begins to take on a new guise. Why? Because he has a new disposition. “If any man is in Christ Jesus,” his nervous system will prove that he is a “new creature,” and he will begin to see things differently.
Heaven above is a brighter blue,
Earth around is a sweeter green;
Something lives in every hue
Christless eyes have never seen:
Birds with gladder songs o’erflow,
Flowers with deeper beauties shine,
Since I know, as now I know,
I am His and He is mine. [Loved With Everlasting Love by George Wade Robinson]
From Biblical Psychology
There is so much more to see, if we’ll just let God open our eyes. One of the byproducts of His grace: Experiencing the world through our five senses which are now fully alive.
