Spiritually Blind & Bewildered

blind-156095_640

Can you see Me now?

I get the message.

Sometimes I am blind to God’s presence and purpose in my life.

LORD, open our eyes.

The self–righteous are blind and bewildered.

“All a man’s ways seem right to him,
but the LORD evaluates the motives (Proverbs 16:2 HCSB).”

What motivates you & me? Is it love for Him and His commandments?

“There is a way that seems right to a man,
but its end is the way to death (Proverbs 16:25 HCSB).”

Will we see Him as sovereign? Why continue blindly down the same dead-end street?

“Hear this,
you foolish and senseless people.
They have eyes, but they don’t see.
They have ears, but they don’t hear (Jeremiah 5:21 HSCB).”

Blind Will See

CROPPED NOVEMBER 2012 PROFILE PICTURE

I can be so blind. The optometrist may chart me as having 20-20 vision, yet I cannot see. I should see not only with my eyes but also with my spirit. There are forms of temporary eye blindness as well as permanent loss of sight. Spiritually, the Holy Spirit can remedy my temporary blindness.  The blind want to see… “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened (Isaiah 35:5a NKJ).”

Christ Jesus brought sight to the physically and spiritually blind. Afflictions can damage my visual perception. “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18 NKJ).”  What I am blind to is beyond description.
