I bring great insight to this blog today. Prepare yourself. Here it is. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind so they can see.
Politely, one might say, “Duh.”
Seriously, I’m caught by the theme Holy Spirit brought to me through the Daily Office today, and it is sight or seeing. First, in Psalm 146: 8a, it reads, The Lord opens the eyes of the blind. Alleluia. I then read from Exodus 14,. ‘Do not be afraid, stand firm, and see the deliverance that the Lord will accomplish for you today. (vs. 13a)’ The apostle John wrote in his first epistle, We declare to you what we’ve seen and heard (1 John 1: 3a). Lastly, I read from John 14: 7, If you know me, you will know my father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.
The Lord opens the eyes of the blind so they may see.
With sight the Lord gives us, we should live as ones with sight to see the deliverance that only the Lord can provide. So, we anticipate, believe, if you will, deliverance is what the Lord has done, is doing and will do, and we will see it. We’re no longer blind.
With eyes from the Lord, we have and will continue to testify in private and public what the Lord has done. It is part of our personal history or our story others would also bear witness to that God has appeared, acted decisively and graciously and opened the doors of the death cells. It is easily to share what we’ve seen if we allow what is true to lead us. God has done it. We’ve seen it, and we’ll tell it.
What is it have we seen? The deliverance, what only God can do, the blind seeing, the prisoners set free? Indeed, we’ve seen God. Glory, love, mercy manifested is God in this world in and through the church. We’ve seen God. His son, Jesus, has become our savior, and we’ve joined in the glorious work of bringing heaven to earth. We’ve seen the Father.
He’s brought sight to the blind in order that they might see. What our God does always has many levels and multiple facets, layers to an onion. When it appears to be on one level, there are layers beneath that show us his work continues and effects so much more.
Yes, you have sight by his grace and mercy. Now, be free to share what you’ve seen so the blind know there is sight available to them, as well. Alleluia!
