So, what are eye words?
Let’s explain by breaking these words apart.
Eye. It’s something that allows passage of something else. The eye of a needle lets in thread. The eye of a potato allows nutrients to pass to a new shoot. The eye of a hook gives us the chance to secure it to a rope. The eye of a storm allows energy to surge in, building the storm in strength.
Words. Information. We convey thoughts through symbols, rather like time travel. We write our thoughts or ideas now, and you can read them in the future.
What we share now, you learn then.
Eye words. Information that we take in that benefits us now and tomorrow.
Deuteronomy 11:18 says:
“You shall therefore lay up these words of mine in your heart and in your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.”
Hmm. Why would we want these words—God’s truth—to pass into us?
It’s a form of time travel. Taking what God is teaching us now so that we remember and use that lesson to experience a better future!
What God shares now, we continue to learn and improve our future situation.
We get a better life because of God’s eye words.
This verse says that “they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.”
To modernize this, God’s truths must be written on the inside of our glasses, directly on our contact lenses, constantly coming between us and our view of the world.
God’s eye words form a spiritual buffer that keeps us from sin and allows us to be daily focused on our Lord.
Eyes on God. He’s the only thing we need to see.
