“Whereas I was Blind, Now I See”

DSC_0003 (2)“Let every hidden thing come to light, and every lie revealed.” As God begins answering this prayer, we must also pray that God gives those who have believed the lies the ability to see and understand the truth. Many people are deceived, and it is essential for us to pray that God open their eyes to see. Only until God brings understanding to the hearts will they be able to walk in the light no longer being deceived.
In John 9:1-7 it says, “And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Jesus answered Neither hath this man sinned, or his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and anointed the eyes of the blind man with clay, and said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way, therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”
This man had been born blind so that the works of God should be made manifest in him. Jesus came and spat on the ground anointed the eyes of the blind man and sent him to wash in the pool of Siloam. In his blindness, he went to the pool and cleaned the clay from his eyes when he was done he was made whole and now can see in the natural. The most beautiful miracle here is that not only was his physical sight opened but was able to see all things with understanding. He was no longer blinded by the things that he had been taught or told to believe. We see this later in the chapter.
John 9:26-33 says, “Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? How opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear It again? Will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvelous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him, he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing.”
He had an excellent understanding of the kingdom of God even above the religious leaders. That they might have eyes to see and understand is a powerful prayer. It is better than all the words of trying to convince someone to believe the truth. If the understanding comes from the spirit washing away the clay out of their eyes, no one will ever be able to take it away from those who have the spiritual sight to see.
We must pray that every lie is revealed, every hidden thing comes to light and that we all might have eyes to see and not be deceived.
