The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. (Luke 11:34 NKJV)
In a little over twelve hours from now, we'll enter a new year. A year in which we all pray will be better than this one. A year in which we've set new goals and cast new visions. A year in which we desire God to guide our steps.
In Luke 11:34, the Bible tells us that our eyes are the lamp of our bodies, therefore, what we allow in determines the status of our spiritual health. I'd like to encourage you to guard what you allow into your spirit, what you read, what you watch, and what you see. Though so many little things can seem insignificant, they often mount into something much greater and having a larger impact than we expected. Some books, TV shows, social media posts, etc. may be innocent, but it all plays a part in forming your thoughts and bringing forth either light or darkness within.
So, protect your lamp so that you won't dim the light within. Protect it by filling it with God's Word. And six months from now, you'll still hold fast to the vigor and zest you had for the new year, no matter what comes your way.
What are you looking forward to the most in 2021?
