We can be so blind!
Blinded by the immediate.
Blinded by what we want or what we think is right.
Blinded by our routines or traditions.
Blinded by worry.
Blinded by trying to control everything and everyone around us.
Sometimes we’re so blind!
Unable to open our eyes…
open our minds….
open our hearts….
To the truth….
to a new reality…
to uncomfortable yet very real feelings.
We need God’s help to heal our blindness.
Sometimes we can be just like Elisha’s servant in 2 Kings 6 who was afraid of the huge enemy army which surrounded the city they were in. Elisha prayed, ‘Open his eyes, Lord, so he may see.”
And when the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, he looked up and saw the hills around Elisha full of horses and chariots of fire.
Elisha was not worried – he knew the truth. God had his back and there was no cause for alarm.
Elisha’s eyes were already opened to the omnipotence and faithfulness of his Father God.
He knew the truth.
Please open our eyes, Dear Father.
