“Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.”
In the summer of 1975, the Lord Jesus spoke to me for the first time, to teach me. The following year, and the two years after that, he spoke to me again. (The truths he taught me I made into a book, “Spiritual Light”, which you can find at www.GoingtoJesus.com.) Years later, I was thinking about those thrilling experiences and realized that every time Jesus spoke to me, I was studying the law of Moses in the Bible, and praying for understanding.
Jesus told his detractors, “If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote about me. And if you don’t believe his writings, how will you believe my words?” (Jn. 5:46–47). Take time to read Moses’ writings – and believe them! And while you’re reading Moses’ words, pray, as I did, “Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law!” Jesus will answer your prayer, and he will “show you great, inaccessible things that you do not know” (Jer. 33:3).
