Original Entry Date 5/20/2016: This morning as I prayed to Papa God I thanked Him for all the bondages He has released me from. He then revealed to me that I was currently in one – the bondage of doubt…that I was doubting the way He has been leading me.
In a vision He said to me, “Remove the veil.” and then my eyes were uncovered. He told me to look up at Him so I did and the Light of His presence was SO bright, it burned my eyes!
I realized that doubting God had caused me to put a veil or sunglasses over my eyes; so I have been looking to Him and His Light with a veiled face. So now God is telling me to look at Him with my eyes uncovered…In other words, His Way will always be greater than the way we think is best.
Even though I try to look at Him with unveiled eyes; I cannot see fully…just how I am not fully understanding the Way God is taking me. By covering my eyes with doubt I can stare into the Light and proclaim to know the Way but I am not seeing the picture completely.
This verse comes to mind.
2 Corinthians 3:17-18 AMPC:
17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom).
18 And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
Also this morning God confirmed this to me, speaking of His Light in the Jesus Calling devotional I read this morning. Here is a snippet and the whole reading can be found at the web link below:
Jesus Calling: May 20
“When your sins weigh heavily upon you, come to Me. Confess your wrongdoing, which I know all about before you say a word. Stay in the Light of My Presence, receiving forgiveness, cleansing, and healing. Remember that I have clothed you in My righteousness, so nothing can separate you from Me. Whenever you stumble or fall, I am there to help you up.
Man’s tendency is to hide from his sin, seeking refuge in the darkness. There he indulges in self-pity, denial, self-righteousness, blaming, and hatred. But I am the Light of the world, and My illumination decimates the darkness. Come close to Me and let My Light envelop you, driving out darkness and permeating you with Peace.
I John 1:7
English Standard Version
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”
