As we start this new month of March and welcome spring, let us by the power of the Holy Spirit open up the eyes of our heart. It is so we can see what has not been seen. The eyes of our heart are open to see Gods provision for us through the person of the Holy Spirit. The church has been given eyes to see.

Ephesians 1:18  I pray that the light of God will illuminate the eyes of your imagination, flooding you with light, until you experience the full revelation of the hope of his calling that is, the wealth of God's glorious inheritances that he finds in us, his holy ones!

19 I pray that you will continually experience the immeasurable greatness of God's power made available to you through faith. Then your lives will be an advertisement of this immense power as it works through you! This is the mighty power  TPT


Eph 1:18 your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for Christians, 19 oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him endless energy, boundless strength!   MSG

2 Cor 4:17 These hard times are small potatoes compared to the coming good times, the lavish celebration prepared for us.

18 There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever. MSG


2 Cor 4:17 For our light, momentary affliction (this slight distress of the passing hour) is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!],

18 Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.  AMP

Job 19:27 see God myself, with my very own eyes. Oh, how I long for that day!  MSG

Psalms 27:13 Yet I believe with all my heart that I will see again your goodness, Yahweh, in the land of life eternal!  TPT

Ps 34:8 Open your mouth and taste, open your eyes and see how good God is. Blessed are you who run to him. MSG

Ps 63:2 So here I am in the place of worship, eyes open, drinking in your strength and glory.

3 In your generous love I am really living at last! My lips brim praises like fountains. MSG

Ps 112:8 His heart is established and steady, he will not be afraid while he waits to see his desire established upon his adversaries.  AMP

1 Cor 2:9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed]. 

10 Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man's scrutiny].  AMP


1 Cor 2:9 That's why we have this Scripture text: No one's ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it   What God has arranged for those who love him.

10 But you've seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. The Spirit, not content to flit around on the surface, dives into the depths of God, and brings out what God planned all along. MSG

1 Cor 2:12 but he lets us in on it. God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving us.

13 We don't have to rely on the world's guesses and opinions. We didn't learn this by reading books or going to school; we learned it from God, who taught us person-to-person through Jesus, and we're passing it on to you in the same firsthand, personal way. MSG


1 Cor 2:12 Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.

13 And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [to those who possess the Holy Spirit].   AMP

Isa 40:5 And the glory (majesty and splendor) of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. AMP


Isa 40:5 Then God's bright glory will shine and everyone will see it. Yes. Just as God has said."  MSG

ISA 60: 4 Lift up your eyes higher! Look all around you and believe, for your sons are returning from far away and your daughters are being tenderly carried home. Watch as they all gather together, eager to come back to you! Zions Wealth

5Then you will see with understanding and be radiant.  Your heart will be thrilled and swell with joy. The fullness of the sea will flow to you  and the wealth of the nations will be transferred to you!  TPT


Isa 60:4 Lift up your eyes round about you and see! They all gather themselves together, they come to you. Your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried and nursed in the arms.

Matthew 5:8 What bliss you experience when your heart is pure! For then your eyes will open to see more and more of God. TPT

Matthew 13:13 That's why I teach the people using parables, because they think they're looking for truth, yet because their hearts are unteachable, they never discover it. Although they will listen to me, they never fully perceive the message I speak.

14The prophecy of Isaiah describes them perfectly: Although they listen carefully to everything I speak, they don't understand a thing I say. They look and pretend to see,

but the eyes of their hearts are closed.

15Their minds are dull and slow to perceive, their ears are plugged and are hard of hearing, and they have deliberately shut their eyes to the truth. Otherwise they would open their eyes to see, and open their ears to hear, and open their minds to understand.

Then they would turn to me and I would instantly heal them.

16But blissful are your eyes, for they see. Delighted are your ears, for they are open to hear all these things.

17Many prophets and godly people yearned to see these days of miracles that you've been favored to see. They would have given everything to hear the revelation you've been favored to hear.  TPT

JOHN 14:17 Your eternal companion is the Spirit of truth, whom those trapped in the sense-ruled world, just cannot 1get to grips with! Their visual horizon is veiled, and they are unable to understand what they cannot see. But, [in your acquaintance with me], you are familiar with this 2seamless, intimate union, and the Spirit's continued presence within you.

18 At no time will you be orphaned or abandoned by me; I come to abide 1face to face with you. (I come to be no less face to face with you, than what Ive always been face to face with the Father, from the beginning and for all eternity.  

19 In yet a little while the world will no longer see me, but I will be tangibly visible to you in the very life we share together. MIRROR

1 Cor 13:12 We don't yet see things clearly. We're squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won't be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We'll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!


2 Cor 4:6 It started when God said, "Light up the darkness!" and our lives filled up with light as we saw and understood God in the face of Christ, all bright and beautiful.  MSG

1 John 3:2 Beloved, we are [even here and] now God's children; it is not yet disclosed (made clear) what we shall be [hereafter], but we know that when He comes and is manifested, we shall [as God's children] resemble and be like Him, for we shall see Him just as He [really] is.  AMP
