RECOVER YOUR VISION
They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.” So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.
As Believers, we should be living with a sense of contentment and gratitude. Getting stuck in a negative pattern of thinking causes us to lose our sense of direction. God wants us to recover our vision, and that will only happen with spending time with God.
“They said to Him, “Lord, that our eyes may be opened.” So Jesus had compassion and touched their eyes. And immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed Him.” (Matthew 20:33-34)
It is easy to get locked into a habit, hurt, or hang up, and we can not see our way out of it. Maybe it is an unhealthy relationship, a bad attitude, or a way of living. No matter what it is, we can recover our vision and see things we have never seen before with prayer.
In todays’ Bible verses, there is a story about two blind men who recovered their sight when they prayed. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us!”. This was a passionate prayer, and Jesus had compassion and answered their prayers.
“And behold, two blind men sitting by the road, when they heard that Jesus was passing by, cried out, saying, “Have mercy on us, O Lord, Son of David!” (Matthew 20:30)
The crowd even told the blind men to be quiet. That made the two blind men pray even louder, and Jesus stopped and asked.
“So Jesus stood still and called them, and said, “What do you want Me to do for you?” (Matthew 20:32)
Jesus wants us to tell Him what we need. And any time we tell Jesus something, we are praying. When we start looking at life from God’s viewpoint, we begin to see things we have never seen before. We see our spouse, friends, family, coworkers, and even strangers as valuable, acceptable, and forgivable. We also see those things about ourselves—your entire perspective changes.
“And Jesus, when He came out, saw a great multitude and was moved with compassion for them, because they were like sheep not having a shepherd. So He began to teach them many things.” (Mark 6:34)
That is the way Jesus sees people with compassion. And Jesus wants to recover our compassion for ourselves, our loved ones, our communities, our country, and the rest of the world.
