Verse for Today

Open Thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

Ps. 119 v. 18.

Open thou mine eyes”

T Manton says for these reasons we need our eyes opened.

The veil of ignorance. Acts 28:26

The veil of carnal knowledge and wisdom, that puffeth up. 1 Cor. 8:1-2,

The veil of prejudice and corrupt affections. 2 Cor. 4:4

The veil of carnal sense. 2 Peter 1: 9

He comments on the last part of the verse:

“that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”

A clear sight of the truths of God. Others have but an hearsay knowledge, gathered out of books and sermons, and the common report which is made of Christ ; but he that is divinely enlightened drinks of the fountain, and so his draught is more fresh and sweet. They do not talk of things by rote after others, but it is written upon their hearts……..

One use is to encourage us to study the Word ; the wonders of God’s works are many, but the wonders of His Word greater…….

Oh! but the unsearchable riches of Grace, the rare plot of man’s Redemption, how wonderful ! All in and about Christ is rare…… Let us cease wondering at worldly things, great places, honours, heaps of wealth.

It condemneth the stupidness of them that are not moved or taken with things so great and wonderful —- great in themselves, and should be precious to us………

The deep things of God, never such a revelation made to the world………

 And worldly men, that despise this study of the Word, they despise that which angels wonder at, and ‘ desire to pry into,’ and make great matters of trifles. The Sun of righteousness, is not he worth the beholding?
