Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

keys to spiritual maturity -
Our dreams and vision is initially something we need to see with the eyes of our hearts. What do you see through the eyes of your heart?
I once heard a story about Walt Disney. He had a vision to build a wonderful place called Disney World. A place of dreams and imagination. He planned this place and work began. However, before it was completed Walt Disney died. At the opening of Disney World someone made the comment to his wife, they said: ‘We are so sorry that your husband Walt is not here to see his dream’. She responded and said that her husband had in fact seen his dream long ago!
Walt Disney had been ‘seeing’ his dream for a long time. It was the others who were seeing the reality for the first time and had no knowledge about the dream.

Ephesians 4:18 I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you.

There are things that must be alive in our hearts. There are things that we can only see with the eyes of our hearts.
