Open His Eyes

"Open his eyes Lord that he may see" 2 Kings 6:17 In Hebrew 11, the Word says that one of the characteristics of faith is having assurance about what we do not see.

Out with the Old, In with the New Ephesians 4:24 "And to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness". We know that it has been said that we cannot control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to what happens to us. And that is true. We can't control a lot of things in this world but knowing what we can control...
