When you can not see your way, all you need is ears to hear.
The old adage, seeing is believing rules much of society’s thinking today. But if truth be told, most times in my life I haven’t had a full clear view of how things would turn out. As I have travelled throughout the journey of life, I have been shrouded by darkness and at times I only had a enough light to make the next step.
As read Matthew 20:29-34 about the account of the two blind men sitting beside the road, I heard an inner whisper reminding me that when I can’t see my way all I really need is an ear to hear. Those blind men didn’t have the ability to see Jesus arrival but they were attentive to the voices around them. As they listened, they got wind that Jesus was passing by. And they refused to let Jesus come in their vicinity and pass them over. The crowds could not silence their quest to capture Jesus’ attention.
Unlike those blind men, my physical eyes work just fine excluding the nearsightedness. Yet spiritually speaking I have some blind spots. Even some things I think I see, the Bible lets me know that I’m only seeing through a glass dimly (1 Cor 13:12). In the Kingdom way of living, my belief is not based upon what I see instead I’m called to live by faith. In walking in faith, it is not my sight that is leading me but my ability to hear and heed the voice of the Master.
Don’t be dismayed if you are in the midst of situation that you can not see your way out. Be attentive to the voice of God and when you hear Him, obey.
