It is said that “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”. I have come to learn that that is true; to some extent. What you are able to form in your mind requires that you have some knowledge. How you see the Lord definitely fits in this criteria. Some see Jesus as a King, others as a friend…..you get the idea. Your perception of Him is all dependent on how much you know about Him. How much you know Him determines how well you will recognize Him in His workings. It comes a time during the acquisition of knowledge, when you receive a revelation that completely changes your complete picture of who our Lord is. You stop seeing Him in your limited knowledge as you take a hold of this particular revelation of who He is to you and who you are to Him.
I will use my own experience to illustrate this. When I was a child, I used to imagine God to be this very very old person, beard and all. Why? Well, He had existed long before the creation of this earth. However, as I continued delving into His Word, I learnt that our time does not apply to Him. 2 Peter 3:8 (NIV) says: “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day”. He is not limited to what man is. I also got over my misconception and learnt that He is not a God who waits till you sin so that He can punish you, but one who loves us so much to the point of sacrificing His own son to be our redemption even before we knew Him. That’s the reason I testify “Glory to the liberating king who came not to conquer kingdoms but conquer hearts and restore men back to what they were intended for.”
Well, all that is just a building block to what I want to share about in a few words>> ‘Miracle Of Sight’ since I have been asked to explain the meaning by a few of my friends. The ‘Miracle Of Sight’ is about having a revelation of who God is and being able to see Him in His true beauty. This is despite whatever circumstances you are facing. Many people tend to focus on their problems instead of focusing on the one constant who will never change; God.
It is the peeling off of the scales over your eyes that develop out of living a carnal instead of a Spirit led life. It is about being at a point where the only song you recognize is “Holy holy holy ….” just because His sight is just unexplained in human language. It’s all about getting to a place where you can see the truth and realize that the only treasure is what Jesus offers to the world, Himself! And with this conviction you can sincerely cry out: “You can take this world, its joys and its fleeting pleasures but give me Jesus my future hope and my greatest treasure”.
The ultimate crown of it is sharing the vision that God has; seeing people, your surroundings and path in the same way that God does.
I listened to the song #YouCanSaveMe by @BeautifulEulogy and the message just blew me away: “Do the stars disappear when the blind look at the sky or do they simply fail to see what was there the whole time?” Just because you lack the ability to see something does not mean that it ceases to exist.
I will end this blog by challenging you with this question: “Are you blind to what’s before you?” If that’s the case, ask for the ‘Miracle of Sight’ and let the Holy Spirit show you all that you have been missing all along.
