Faith Justifies and Gives Peace – William Bridge

Pray For Our Eyes To Be Opened To Scripture – William Bridge

… and most important of all, we must earnestly ask God in prayer to open our blind eyes to the meaning of the Scriptures; “Open my eyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law” (Psalm 119:18); “I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire… and anoint your eyes with eye-salve, that you may see” (Rev. 3:18).
