“I Was Blind, Now I See”

John 9:25 (NASB) “He then answered, ‘Whether He is a sinner, I do not know; one thing I do know, that though I was blind, now I see.’”

In the late 16th century, Isaac Newton became obsessed with the quest to understand the properties of light. His most surprising discovery was the fact that white light was “exactly the opposite of what many of his contemporaries would have thought.” The common assumption had been that white light was “the absence of colour.” But through his experiments, Newton discovered that white light was a combination of all the colours.

Many rejected his conclusions, since they did not fit with their preconceived ideas. But Newton demonstrated convincingly that he was right. And he was.

Newton had discovered a new way of seeing. He had been able to make this discovery after freeing himself from preconceived ideas that blinded people from recognizing the truth.

APPLICATION
What Newton discovered, parallels in the spiritual realm. The sad fact is that many people never receive the full blessings of God. They limit themselves because they have made up their minds. They refuse to allow Him to teach them new ideas, or His way of looking at things. They are not open to His insights and directions. Yet the Bible reminds us that God can open our eyes that we might see in new ways.

Today, ask God to free you from preconceived ideas. Do not give in to the limitations of your flesh. Spend time in the Word. Allow the Holy Spirit to shine His Light in your heart and mind, and to reveal new truths. Listen to His voice. Cry out for wisdom. Develop a hunger for the deeper things of God.

PRAYER
• Pray that God will open your eyes that you might see His truth more clearly.
• Cry for more of His insights.
• Pray that He will give you grace to spread the Light of the Gospel that others might see.
• Pray that the Inspired Word will lay hold of God’s vision for the future.
• Pray for provision for the Inspired Word to reach out to many
• Pray for the purchase of TV equipment

In Jesus’ name. Amen.
