Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.” John 9:39
Sight is something most people believe that they have, when talking about natural vision. They can see things that are physical in nature.
Insights into things that are spiritual or non-physical are often not seen by most people. They are blind to what is going on outside the physical realm of this world.
Jesus stated that He came so that those who cannot see will see and that those who can see will be unable to see.
One of the beliefs running through America is for people to be a ‘woke’ people. Many are claiming to be woke up to the reality of things occurring in this world. This belief has also worked itself its way into the church.
The world believes that they can see the truth and that belief in God or church is wrong. Anyone who sees in this way is blind and cannot really see the truth set before them.
Jesus came to open the spiritual eyes of spiritually blind people. Those who have seen Jesus for who He is, is willing to allow Him to reveal the spiritual truths around them.
They will be able to discern (see) God at work in and around them. They will be able to discern (see) what God desires of them. They will also be able to discern (see) what the enemy, the world, is doing or trying to do.
Those who refuse to see Jesus as Savior, God is allowing them to remain blind as to what God is doing. He will allow them to remain blind in their fallen sinful ways, though He continually calls them to open their eyes and see the truth.
While it is important that you may see with your physical eyes, it is more important to see with spiritual eyes. You need to allow God to open your spiritual eyes to see what God sees.
Do not allow yourself to remain blind to the truth found in God’s word. Do not allow yourself to be blind in believing that it is acceptable to live in sin and still get into heaven.
See the reality of the false lies that this world is trying to teach and promote. See the reality that believing in Jesus is the only way to know true life.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that God will open your spiritual eyes to see; that God will reveal the lies of this world; that you will see what God is doing; and that you will not be blind to the truth in God’s word.
