Seeing Without Sight

 

(Psalms 73:23-24) But now I am always with you, for you keep holding my right hand. You will guide me with your wise advice, and later you will receive me with honor.

(2 Corinthians 5:7) For we live by faith, not by sight.

(John 16:13) Yet when the Spirit of Truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own accord, but will speak whatever he hears and will declare to you the things that are to come.

 

 

While I trained for ministry in southern Spain, I knew a Missionary Pastor that has a great anointing for healing. He would often visit and preach when our Pastor would be traveling.  We found out that he somehow started to lose his sight one day until eventually, all he could see were some shadows and lights. A few months passed by, and he came to preach still suffering from this sickness.  The title of his sermon was “Seeing without sight”.  Wow, right?

It was humbling and inspiring at the same time as every word preached was spoken out of personal experience in the natural and carried the authority of the Holy Spirit. His wife read the passages for him and he would preach having put all his notes to memory.  Remember that he has a strong anointing for healing, yet could not heal himself, and was no longer able to walk in a straight line without being guided by someone.

We are all completely blind concerning our future in the natural.  We have no idea if we will wake up the next day, no idea if we are suffering from a disease internally until there are external symptoms or a medical diagnosis.  All we have is the assurance of what God has spoken to us in His Word and what He continues to speak through the Holy Spirit. 

He has assured us that He looks after us and that we have authority through Jesus Christ in the spiritual.  That His plans for us are of good and not of evil, that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive them; that He has given us the ability to see by faith all His promises to be fulfilled; that if we ask, we will receive; and that if we truly love Him, all things will work out for our good.

But in order to live and be guided by this supernatural power, we need to hold His hand, spend time with Him, and shut out all the other voices that we are accustomed to depending on, including our own.

 

When you are truly able to see through the eyes of God, you will be able to walk without sight.  This is the key to true spirituality and oneness with the Creator.
