Practical examples




Hello ladies, how are you doing? Today I would like to continue to talk about last week’s subject, which was good eyes.

I know this topic is very important for our spiritual life and I would like to help you with practical examples on how we can have good eyes with situations we experience daily.

For example, the pastor of your church, or his wife, walked by you and did not say hi, right away the devil suggests: "Do you see how the  pastor/ his wife was rude, he/ she did not even speak to you.” But if you decide to have good eyes, you will reject this evil thought by thinking like this, maybe his mind was elsewhere and he did not even notice me there. Another situation: You see two people talking and distractedly looked at you, then comes the thought: "Look, they are gossiping about you..." But you seeing the devil's strategy, you decide to ignore this thought and just say hi to them. There is another situation where your friend or acquaintance has been chosen to have a certain responsibility, then the voice comes again: "You are worthless, she was chosen because she is better than you." But you decide to rebuke that thought and  decide to think well of your friend and feel happy for her, knowing that when it is God’s will, your time will come, after all, we serve Jesus and it is He who decides how and when we serve Him. It can also happen that  an assistant might walk by you with a serious face, then comes the thought: "She thinks that she is all that, nosy, she thinks she is the best assistant in the Church, and it seems to me that she is trying to please the pastor, she is doing everything just to call his attention. "But that thought is harmful, it does no good to you. So what do you do? You tie up that thought  and determine to think well of her, even pray for her, maybe she is serious because she  is praying in the spirit.  We must be watchful always,  because if not, we can sin thinking badly of someone who is pleasing God and we don’t know.

Now I would like to talk about the good eyes towards yourself. For example: Your friend is dating and you are not, then comes the thought: "She is more beautiful than you, she is more intelligent, more spiritual and therefore you can not and will not even get anyone." But knowing that this is the devil’s trap, you decide to think well of yourself, you decide to have faith, believing that God has the best prepared for you and on the right time He will give you the blessing. Or, something happened and the first thought is: "I am very stupid, look at what I did" "I am very slow." "I'm too ugly, no one will ever like me" "I deserve this little life I have” “I will never receive the Holy Spirit because everything is wrong with me.” And the list goes on…

Friends, I could write about many more examples, but not to extend too much, I leave you with the ones above. Do not let the bad eyes control you, "But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness." (Matthew 6:22)
 See that when we have good eyes, everything is more beautiful, more pleasant, our life becomes lighter, we have peace and God can shine in our lives. I know we're not perfect, but we should thrive to be better every day for Jesus. This desire to be better combined with the effort to improve is what pleases God. There is  a small detail: everything we sow, we reap, so let’s sow  what is good; that from our mouths may only come out words of life; the sincere smile stamped on our faces and our thoughts full of the things from above. This way our life will spread the scent of our Lord.

A big kiss to you and until next week.

Greetings Mrs Tania, this message is very important to me. It was on Sunday and I was attending, I saw a funny look on a Servant and I thought " perhaps it's because I'm late that she is looking at me with such eyes ". Then I said to myself " it doesn't matter, anyway I am wrong to be late' I then decided to focus in the service. This leads to an evil heart with terrible intentions and become unclean. But with good eyes I learnt to let go and move on instead of dwelling on a thought which bears bad fruit.

Am a female the examples above have all happened to me and more. The biggest problem is girls in a group talking and stopping as soon as I pass them.
I get the looks, I have been told I think am better than others.
I have also looked others with evil eye. I have to keep checking myself always.
Thanks.
