I want you to go with me for a moment to St Mark’s Gospel 8:24, where a blind man came to Jesus, that he might receive his sight. The Bible says that Jesus spat on his eyes and put His hands on him and asked him what he saw. The man replied, I see men as trees walking, he had what we would say, blurred vision, not able to see clearly until Jesus touched him again. So often, so many people have said to me, I really don’t see it for some reason, they haven’t got a clear understanding of what is being said or done.
Let’s take a little glance at 2nd Kings chapter 6. We note there that the King of Syria was at war against Israel but they could not trap them because by word of knowledge, God let Elisha know where the Syrian were encamped, thus Israel escaped from them. It’s a bit of a long story but the King of Syria found out who was letting the King know their whereabouts, so the King of Syria sent out his army to look for Elisha and this is where we come to when Elisha had risen up to go the whole city was surrounded by the Syrian army, but Elisha saw beyond the Syrian army but his servants vision was a bit blurred. He could only see the enemy until Elisha prayed and said, Lord, open the young man’s eyes. When the young man looked again he saw: Verse 17 chapter 6, (last part) and behold the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha. The Bible says the angels of the Lord encamp round about them. Don’t let us allow our vision to be blurred by the things that we see around us, Hebrews chapter 12 verse 1-2. Wherefore seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, referring to chapter 11, let us lay aside every weight and the sin that so easily beset us, let us run the race that is set before us.
Looking where verse 2 unto Jesus when we look to Him the things of earth will go dim and we will see clearly. I have said so many times before, there is so much to be said, when it comes to the word of God. Just recently a verse of scripture came to me. Proverbs chapter 4 verse 25-27. This come to me and at that time I did not have in mind to write on this: verse 25, let thine eyes look right on and let thine eyelids look straight before thee. 26) Ponder the path of thy feet and let all thy ways be established 27)Turn not to the right or to the left, remove thy feet from evil. Oh there is so much right now, there is so much coming I really don’t know when I’ll stop.
Psalms 119–105 David said, thy word is a lamp unto my feet and light unto my path.
Psalms 119–130 The entrance of thy word giveth light, it giveth understanding to the simple.
Read Ephesians 1-18. Paul said that the eyes of your understanding be enlightened that you may know what is the hope of His calling and what the riches of His glory of His inheritance of the saints.
Friend, there is no need to stumble, we are children of the day and not of the night, we should see very clearly where we are going. Listen friend, if you can’t see clearly, I mean in the spiritual sense, just read Revelation chapter 3 verse 18. I’d like to elaborate a while on that one. Look unto the word of God and allow God through the Holy Spirit to enlighten you to see what you should see and I’m sure it won’t be cloudy. Walk in the light as He is in the light.
Listen friend, let not your spiritual vision be blurred by what you see in the natural, look to the one who sees all things, knows all things and giveth and giveth and giveth again. The bible says that if the blind lead the blind they will both fall in the ditch together. The ditches are just about full, be careful where you walk and who’s leading.
