Willfully Blind

"Why that's very strange!" the man replied. "He healed my eyes, and yet you don't know where he comes from? We know that God doesn't listen to sinners, but he is ready to hear those who worship him and do his will. Ever since the world began, no one has been able to open the eyes of someone born blind. If this man were not from God, he couldn't have done it." John 9:30-33

The Jewish leaders did not know where Jesus came from. The blind man's astonishment was understandable-- a healing like this was unprecedented. Jesus' works confirmed his origin as from God. Once his true identity was known, belief and discipleship should have followed, but the Jewish leaders were willfully blind. sub notes from the NLT study bible pg. 1790

Many people today are willfully blind to Jesus' amazing love and power. Are you stuck in the rituals of religion and have forgotten the reason for the religion? I pray that you will open your heart to the Holy Spirit today and be healed of your spiritual blindness. Do not rely on your own understanding but in all things pray and seek God's plans for your life. Take your ideals, dreams, and plans to God in prayer and ask for His understand, His heart, and His dreams for you. You will be amazed at how much God cares and loves you if you will just talk to him and remember Him each day as you make choices. When you put Him in the driver seat your life will have a new meaning, purpose, and enjoyment.

God Bless You in Christ's love, Kim Fincher
