DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DO YOU KNOW❗YOU CAN STILL GUARD YOUR EYES❓
The above prayer by David, the sweet Psalmist of Israel is worth our attention. It speaks volumes concerning a very disheartening experience he had, the last time his eyes were unguarded.
One evening, as he was loitering about, his eyes saw what he never intended to see, it lead him to his worst night mare. He went into another man’s wife, Uriah’s wife. One sin led to another and eventually, he ended up as an unfaithful husband and a murderer. Worst still, he was told that because of that infamous act “the sword shall not depart from your house forever” (2 Sam. 12:10)
Recalling those ugly pictures, king David not wanting a repeat of such moral failure prayed, Turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things…. “Worthless things in our case will include pornography, horoscopy, monies offered in bribery, leaked examination script, etc. It could be for the same reason that Job had to cut a covenant. Hear him , “I have made a covenant with my eyes that I will not look lustfully upon a maid” (Job 31-1)
Unfortunately, we live in a world today where we are daily bombarded with disgusting and morally weakening pictures from the media industry. And if we are careless about it, chances are high that it will affect our psyche and can lead us into some ungodly addictions. Let us therefore join the saints of old to pray that prayer and learn to fix our eyes only on God glorifying things.
Unguarded eyes betray the heart.
Lord, turn away my eyes from looking at worthless things today.
