TODAY’S WORD…

.

Two blind men followed along behind Jesus, shouting,

“Son of David, have mercy on us!”

They went right into the house where He was staying,

and Jesus asked them,

“Do you believe I can make you see?”

“Yes, Lord,” they told Him, “we do.”

.

Then He touched their eyes and said,

“Because of your faith, it will happen.”

Then their eyes were opened, and they could see!

.

– Matthew 9:27-30 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

This episode makes it easy enough

for us to see that the paradox is true:

there are blind people who in fact see God

and those with sight who see no trace of Him!

.

So many of us lack the trust that we should have in the Lord.

So many of us prefer to keep the eyes of our heart closed shut,

very often because of our pride, our ego, our selfish needs and ways.

.

Faith in the Lord will help us see…the Truth…

and it is the Truth that sets us free

…from ourselves…and from all that shackles our spirit.

And when the Lord, by His grace, sets us free,

we experience the profound difference between darkness and light

…and our heart can only cry out to Him, with joy and thanksgiving.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

By Your grace, O Lord,

I once was lost but now am found;

was blind, but now I see!
