MATTHEW 6:22_thy whole body shall be full of light.
Jesus gives courage and light to face every day. Only the truth can give that. Lies give fear and darkness. God says to Joshua in chapter 1 (KJV):“6 Be strong and of a good courage …,’ and in verse ‘7 Only be thou strong and very courageous …,’ and in verse ‘9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”
The single eye Jesus refers to here means focused on Him, only. Singleness of vision on Jesus keeps you on His path. Never forget, His path leads to freedom.
Freedom breaks bondage. Nothing in bondage is free, and nothing free is in bondage. With your spirit as the mainspring, shackles corrode away. The mainspring creates the function of whatever it is operating. For everything to function properly the mainspring has to be free from any encumbrance. An encumbrance is a false part that does not belong.
Jesus wants your focus on Him alone.
Your whole being (body, soul, spirit) will be full of light.
God of Courage, Help me be strong and of a good courage every day. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants me to keep my eyes on Him—I will!
