THE EYESALVE

DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR TERRY FISCHER

The eyesalve is a quick devotional that Pastor Terry Fischer writes regularly to challenge and encourage the saints of God. It is meant to be short and sweet and comes from his daily reading and prayer.

Eyesalve: Lead The Rebuilding

By | Eyesalve, Remnant | No Comments

That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem. 3And they said unto me, The remnant that are left of the captivity there in the province are in great affliction and reproach: the wall of Jerusalem also is broken down, and the gates thereof are burned with fire.” Nehemiah 1:2-3

 

Today is not much different than the days of Nehemiah. I hear reports all the time, not about Jerusalem, but about the church and the desperate state many are in. They may be doing well financially (rich and in need of nothing), but they are spiritually broken down. However, there is a remnant in the midst of this, you may be one of them, who will not be afflicted by this. Some will have to “come out from amongst her.” Some will be rejected by her. These remnant will be the Nehemiahs for our generation who lead the rebuilding of the wall and gates.

Eyesalve: Fulfill All Righteousness

By | Eyesalve, Sanctification | No Comments

But Jesus answered and said to him, “Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness.” Then he allowed Him.” (Matthew 3:15, NKJV)

 

Notice Jesus didn’t say it was fitting that He would fulfill all righteousness, but He said it is fitting for US to fulfill it? That means He is including or involving men to help fulfill all righteousness. Will you help Him, will you walk righteous today?

Eyesalve: Make His Paths Straight

By | Eyesalve, Sanctification | No Comments

For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” Matthew 3:3

 

So, how do you make His paths straight? Don’t veer to the right or left so that He has to go and fetch you. Don’t get lost in the wilderness where He has to go and find you. Don’t lag behind so He has to stop and go back and get you. Walk the straight and narrow highway of holiness.

Eyesalve: Happy Are You

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

“Happy are thy men, happy are these thy servants, which stand continually before thee, and that hear thy wisdom.” I Kings 10:8

 

Happy are you saint of God, if you are in a strong church with godly men and women who are filled with wisdom. You are blessed to be able to tap into that wisdom.

Eyesalve: The Seeker Sensitive Church

By | Holy Spirit | No Comments

And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Jeremiah 29:13

 

For many years now, I have been working at having a seeker sensitive church. A church where every true seeker of God will be encouraged to be more sensitive to the Spirit of God.

Eyesalve: Do The Same

By | Discipleship, Eyesalve | No Comments

Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. 14If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” John 13:13-15

 

Some people use their authority for personal gain. Some use it to exalt themselves. Some use it to control people. Jesus used it to teach how to serve. Help me, Oh Lord, do the same.

Eyesalve: There is One Who is There

By | Eyesalve, Jesus Christ | No Comments

Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” Romans 8:34

 

In the last Eyesalve, we saw that the Devil goes before God, day and night, to accuse us. Be encouraged saints because there is also One there on your behalf. He is sitting on the right hand of the Father. He is Jesus Christ the righteous. Jesus is there interceding for you and for me. Hallelujah.

Eyesalve: Don’t Help Him

By | Church, Eyesalve | No Comments

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.” Revelation 12:10

 

There is one who accuses each of us before God, let’s not help him with that. Don’t help him accuse your brethren. Don’t help him accuse you.

Eyesalve: We Get to Open His Book

By | Eyesalve, Word of God | No Comments

And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” Revelation 5:1-5

No one was worthy to open the book and read it or even look upon it except the Lion of Judah, the Lord Jesus Christ. Such disrespect people have for the word of God today. Some open it to mock it, others to find personal gain, but the worst yet is to open it and read it and not believe it. If you are willing, Jesus will open the book, the holy bible for you. What a privilege we have to get to open His book. Hallelujah!
