TOPIC: The Power of your EYES!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17
A word occasionally used in the Bible is “Behold”. It can also be construed in different ways; “See, Observe, Watch, Witness and View”. However, Beholding is not merely seeing. It is seeing with an intensity (full Concentration OR Focus) and insight that goes beyond a mere physical processing of light entering the eyes.
When Jesus healed a blind man, he asked him, “Do you see anything?” The man replied, “I see men as trees walking”. He could see, but he was confused. Jesus touched his eyes again; then he saw clearly; he had not only sight, but insight, to make sense of what he saw (Mark 8:22-26).
It is not enough to see; you have got to see with the eyes of faith.Seeing without insight is seeing without understanding. It is seeing without discerning significance, and that is not really seeing at all.
The most important kind of seeing is the seeing of spiritual realities. However, many are blind to these. They see well enough with the physical eye, but their inward eye is blind, so their perception of this world is faulty. The physical picture is clear, but the spiritual insight is dim. This darkness of heart results in spiritual death. Romans 1:20-21, Ephesians 2:1-5. Please stay tuned for more.
Prayer: I receive insight to make sense of what I see in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
