Matthew 6:22-23

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness.


Have you ever been in a beautiful park on a sunny day, the woods in the early morning, or your favorite place to relax, and just taking in all the sights, smells, and sounds that you could to remember it by? Although you saw the sights with your eyes and took in the beautiful scenery, you really saw with your mind. It was your brain that put the picture together and it was your heart that felt at peace with what you saw.


The mental processing required to perceive images is so great that it represents close to 40% of the body's at-rest caloric consumption. This is the reason why closing our eyes when we are tired feels so relaxing. A huge percentage of our brains‒the largest of any other brain function‒is required for doing nothing other than recognizing what is in front of us.



The Scripture says our whole body is regulated by the eyes. If our eyes don’t pick up what’s in front of us and we don’t understand it, we are in darkness. When our eyes are healthy we pick up light and we see and understand what is in front of us. It is the same way in the Spiritual. In the Scripture the eye represents spiritual understanding.


If your eye is unhealthy it simply won’t be able to grasp the things of God. When your eyes are healthy you can take in all kinds of revelation that you did not have before, because the Holy Spirit will allow you to see it. In Matthew 13:16-17 he says this, “But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, that many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.”


There are many people who see the things you see but do not understand them. That is because God gives understanding through the Holy Spirit to whom He chooses.


Are your eyes healthy? Are they too covered up with the busyness of life or dimmed by worldly things? Don’t allow the enemy to blur your vision. Make sure your eyes are healthy in the Word.

Look what God said. We look at the unseen. You look what your mortal eyes don't see. You don't see with your eyes anyhow. You only look with your eyes; you see with your heart. You look right at it, say, "I don't see it"; you mean you don't understand it. Your seeing is your understanding, so you understand with your heart.
