And the crowds marveled with amazement, astounded over the things they were witnessing with their own eyes! The lame were walking, the mute were speaking, the crippled were made well, and the blind could see. For three days everyone celebrated the miracles as they exalted and praised the God of Israel! Matthew 15:31 TPT
Can you imagine following Jesus from place to place, watching as those blind eyes were open, the deaf hearing and lame walking? But He did, didn’t He?!
And that same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in me. It lives in you as well. The same power that Jesus tapped into is available to us as well.
Here is what I have discovered; God is no respecter of persons. What He did for others, He will do for you and me. If He open the blind eyes then, He will open blind eyes now. There is no doubt in my mind or in my heart about that.
I do not pretend to know the mind of God or His plans or purposes. Those are all His! He has things in store for us that we cannot even imagine. We foolishly waste our time trying to figure all that out. His view encompasses a much greater span than I have.
But this I do know, He is a Covenant keeping God. I say it to myself everyday. The blood of Jesus didn’t just save, heal and deliver that day, but everyday since. It doesn’t go out of style. It keeps on working!
Tomorrow I take my youngest daughter for an injection in her eye. On Wednesday, she goes for emergency surgery just to save the vision in her one remaining seeing eye. I’m not angry that God didn’t do it the way I expected. I’m focused on His voice and casting the care of it on Him.
I am watching as her confidence in God boosts my own. She is believing for a financial miracle as well as a healing miracle. So many have lavished love on her, and I’ve watched her be affected by that love in such a positive way.
You see, I’ve come to realize that God has a plan for all these things I’ve been through over the past two and a half years. It is to grow my trust in Him to such a level that it cannot be shaken. I’ve never thought myself to be like Job, but I know that if he gave Job back more than he lost, he will do the same for us. He’s just that kind of God!
I entitled this, The Blind See, but it’s not just physical blindness that needs to be fixed. It’s spiritual blindness in the hearts of His people. He’s crying out to us, “Open your eyes! See me for who I am. I love you with an everlasting love and that will never change. Stop trying to figure everything out and trust me!”
