Sermon Notes:

Open My Eyes– August 2, 2020

In 2 Kings 6, we read a story of Elisha’s servant who is terrified by the size of the enemy surrounding him. You can sense the despair in his voice as he cries out to Elisha, “What shall we do?” Elisha simply prayed for him, “O Lord, open his eyes so he may see”. (2 Kings 6:17)
What was the result? “Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
This story comes to a beautiful conclusion. The servant sees the presence of God’s power and is delivered from trouble. But what do we do when we still do not yet see the end of our story? What can we learn from Isaiah, Job and Jesus about seeing God?

Isaiah 45:15
Truly you are a God who has been hiding himself, the God and Savior of Israel.
Why does God seem hidden? Part of the answer is that it is true that he hides himself. The God we worship is both hidden and revealed.

Job 23:8-10
But if I go to the east, he is not there; if I go to the west, I do not find him. 9 When he is at work in the north, I do not see him; when he turns to the south, I catch no glimpse of him. 10 But he knows the way that I take; when he has tested me, I will come forth as gold.
Job walks through an extended and difficult season where he does not see God. While Job does not see God, he is convinced that God sees him and knows him. Furthermore, he has the assurance that God is refining his life.

John 14:8-9
Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.” Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
God hides himself because He is God, and reveals himself because He is love.

We worship the God who opens the eyes of our heart.
We can pray every day, “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law”. (Psalm 119:18).
