Today’s Life Journal entry:
Scripture John 9:38 –
Jesus then said, “I came into the world to bring everything into the clear light of day, making all the distinctions clear, so that those who have never seen will see, and those who have made a great pretense of seeing will be exposed as blind.”
Observation – Jesus was not sent here to just confirm the beliefs of those who were already followers of the Lord. He was sent here to share His Father’s Word of grace, love and redemption. He was not afraid to “upset the apple cart” so to speak of those who claimed to be followers of God, yet obviously were not.
Application – God still brings into focus the eyes of those who have yet to see Him in ways that are amazing. All too often we get caught in the everyday and forget to seek Him in all we do. The fact is, He is everywhere to those of us who earnestly seek Him. There is a new song called Jesus in Disguise. It’s a perfect example of this verse because it talks about Jesus being in the everyday person. I saw Jesus in people while I was experiencing a valley. He opened my eyes to the fact that He really was carrying me through, using these Angels on Earth to be His hands and feet.
Prayer – Dear Lord, thank you for opening my eyes and allowing me to see you in my daily life. Please forgive me for all the times I have not sought you. Being blind to you is a very lonely place to be. I am so blessed by your willingness to expose my blindness and open my eyes to you and your grace. Amen.
