Matthew 20:32 -34 And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.
If you think about it, isn’t that what we all want? It seems most of our lives, we humans can wander around spiritually blind. If we have any “insight” at all, it is limited at best. Way too often we can’t see the big picture.
How often do we tell people, “I don’t see it that way.” “I can’t see how that would help?” “I don’t see the point in this?” “Can’t you see what I am trying to say?” “See? It’s like this…” “Why can’t I see God’s hand in this situation?” ” Why can’t he or she see I am trying my best, or “Why can’t he see that I am crying out inside?”
We are talking about our mind’s eye – it’s ability to fully take in what is going on, or what has been and find purpose in it. We want our mind’s eyes opened to the Truth. It’s our desire to see the world as it really is so we won’t be duped, or disappointed, or blindsided. We want to see God moving in our life, see what is really on our kids or spouse’s thoughts, see the potential in ourselves and others, or see the reason behind the tragedy.
Lord, let our eyes be opened. That’s what the two blind men wanted. Jesus restored their physical sight, but He also gave them new insight. They saw who He was and followed Him. Seeing may really be believing. If you feel as if you are stumbling over your questions, if you can’t see what direction to go or why things are as they are, take it to God. Open your heart to Jesus, then wait and see what happens.
