Therefore, I also … do not cease … making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened…
For 51 years, Bob Edens was blind. His world was full of constant darkness. And for five decades he had never seen the light of day, until a miraculous surgery was performed, and for the very first time in his life he could see.
During his first reaction to sight, Bob said, “I would have never dreamed that yellow is so yellow. I can now see the shape of the moon, and I like nothing better than to see a jet plane flying across the sky leaving a vapor trail. And there’s the sunrise and sunset. To those of you who have always seen, you can never know how wonderful it is.”
You can have physical sight all of your life and never see with the eyes of your heart. If you’re born again, you shall see the kingdom of God. But, the Bible tells us that Satan blinds those who don’t know Christ. And the fact remains that there are still many Christians who need an eye-opening experience with Jesus.
Has it seemed like forever since you’ve experienced an eye-opening walk with the Lord? Being a church member for 30 years doesn’t mean you have the spiritual sight to really see the Lord as you should. No matter how sincere we are and no matter how much we may seek spiritual truth, even the best of us are still on a kindergarten level of understanding all that God has planned for us.
If you really desire to know God, then open the eyes of your heart to understand who God truly is through prayer and talking to Him. It’s not enough to know Him simply as the Savior, but beyond we must know Him progressively as the Savior and Lord of our lives.
PRAYER IS LIFE’S LIMITLESS REACH TO
THE LORD AND THE LOST.
