What would it be like to suffer from blindness? To be unable to enjoy or even imagine the colors of the mountains in the fall, or see the face of a loved one as they walk down the aisle, or take in the breathtaking scenery of the sunset. Like blinders on a horse’s bridle or a veil draped over someone’s eyes - is also the effects of anyone who may be suffering from spiritual obtuseness.
How can it be possible that God promises to actively be working in the daily affairs of our lives, and we miss it - or at worst miss Him? Wouldn’t it be ill-fated to have eyes to see, and miss the opportunity to see God at work. How about the chance of witnessing a loved one stricken with a disease walk out of the hospital, or watch a young child pray for His father who fell off a ladder, and survived?
You know, it would seem better at times to be physically blind than to be spiritually imperceptive. It is said; that the average person with physical blindness possesses heighten sensitivity towards the need for others, human touch, and an incredible sense of acute hearing. I invite you today to remain sensitive towards what God is doing. He did promise to give sight to the blind.
27 As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” 28 When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied.
29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “According to your faith let it be done to you”; 30 and their sight was restored.
