DAILY DEVO...I don't want to be blind, I want to see


On the road to Damascus, the Scripture reveals that Saul (Paul) was struck blind. However, when Ananias prayed for Saul, scales fell from his eyes. Literally...

(Acts 8:17,18) "Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, 'Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.' Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again".

There is more to this story that we need to know about. Saul was very religious and thought that he was doing the work of God by persecuting Christians. But on his way, on the Damascus Road, he met Jesus and his sight was taken away. 

When Ananias prayed for Saul, the physical scales were removed from his eyes and he saw things differently. Not only did Saul now see things physically but his spiritual eyes were open as well. It was during this eye opening experience that God changed Saul's name to Paul. And as we all know, Paul went on to do some pretty great things for the Kingdom. 

Many people are walking around with something blocking their vision. I don't mean something in their eye like a cataract. I mean spiritually. 

It makes no sense to me how someone will take eye drops from the eye doctor to improve their eyesight but yet when given the remedy to their spiritual blindness, they refuse the Great Physicians orders. 

I don't know about you, but I don't want to be blind. I want to see. I want the scales to fall off of my eyes and see Jesus. I want to see all that He has for me with wide, open eyes. 👀 Give me some spiritual eye drops!!
