Jesus already knew what the blind man wanted before he even spoke. It was also quite obvious to the crowd as this poor beggar groped and fumbled his way to Jesus what he needed. But it wasn’t until the blind man spoke, “I want to see.” that God’s merciful kindness and Will came into his life. Do you lack God’s vision in your life right now? Is He calling you into a new season, a new work and you’re hesitating because it’s going against all sound reasoning? Do you desire His perfect purpose and plan in your life? Then like that blind beggar, tell the Lord, “I want to see.”
The Lord had come to Gideon and addressed him as a mighty warrior…which Gideon disputed and started to reject, when God stopped him by saying…”Go in the might you have at this very moment…you need nothing more…in your weakness I will make you strong.” The Lord’s encouragement released vision in Gideon, who in turn encouraged his fellow Israelites, and a fresh vision was released in the entire nation, and subsequently they were able to defeat the Midians. You never know when a word of encouragement will release vision in someone’s life…when a kind word will suddenly allow a person to see themselves through their Savior’s eyes. Release vision in someone’s life today by speaking encouragement into them.
