+DEV+ That I May See

That I May See

"...two blind men followed him, calling out, Have mercy on us, Son of David!  When he had gone indoors...he asked them, Do you believe that I am able to do this?" Matthew 9:27-28

Scripture Focus: Matthew 9:27-31

The ability to see is not limited to the use of our eyes. Details missed by the eyes are often grasped by our other senses. Emotions grip us as our hearts connect with the hearts of others.

During Jesus' earthly ministry, the religious leaders - those most familiar with the Scriptures - were spiritually blind. They failed to recognize Jesus as the promised Messiah. But two physically blind men realized who He was. Though unable to see as they followed Jesus, they knew in their hearts who He was. They even called Him "Son of David," a title that referred to the Messiah's inclusion in the lineage of King David. They were certain He had the power to heal them.

Today, just as in Jesus' day, blindness is not limited to physical sight. Many people can't see their need for a savior. Even Christians, blind to God's activity in our lives, can be so focused on our own agendas that we miss the blessings God leaves for us each day: occasions to witness, to serve, to praise, or simply to spend quiet time with Him.

Insight: How long have you been blind to God's activity in your life? Ask him to open your eyes to what he wants you to see today.
