Dear Friends and Family

READ 1 KINGS 14:1 THROUGH 16:34

Teens and children often think their parents must have “eyes in the back of their heads.” How does Mom know I forgot to brush my teeth? She has not seen me yet today! How does Dad know I came home late last night? He was asleep! Parents have a knack for putting together clues to uncover the truth. However, sometimes clues are unnecessary because God chooses to make something known.

But the Lord had told Ahijah, “Jeroboam’s wife is coming to ask you about her son, for he is ill, and you are to give her such and such an answerc. When she arrives, she will pretend to be someone else”

(1 Kings 14:5).

The king sent his wife to the blind prophet Ahijah. She went in disguise, but she was the one who was fooled. Before she stepped into his home, Ahijah knew who she was and why she was there! Blind Ahijah did not need to see her. God became his eyes, and He directed his steps.

Like Ahijah, you can allow God to be your eyes. As you seek His face, He will show you what you need to know and even allow you to see through the deceptions of others.

Thought for Today: Trust your faith sight more than your eyesight.
