O Lord, Open My Eyes

O Lord, Open My Eyes






O Lord, open my spiritual eyes,

To see the deep truths of God;
That, with wings of eagle Iíll rise,
Propelled by Your Spirit and Word.

O that I will grow and fully know
All that You planted, deposited in me;
Partnering with Your Spirit to show
Gifts, gold, goods, freely given to me.


I thank You for giving Christís mind
That leads, guides, guards and drives.
O that Your deep secrets I will find
To help me finish my race without strife.





Wisdom From the Spirit


6We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7No, we speak of God's secret wisdom, a wisdom that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9However, as it is written:
"No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no mind has conceived
what God has prepared for those who love him"[a]ó 10but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.
The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. 11For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us. 13This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.[b] 14The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15The spiritual man makes judgments about all things, but he himself is not subject to any man's judgment:
16"For who has known the mind of the Lord
that he may instruct him?"[c] But we have the mind of Christ.
