Mark 10:46-52

Show me Jesus, Father, and show others the Jesus in me.

****************************************************************************

“What do you want Me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.

The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

“Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.”  Immediately, he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road. (v 51-52 NIV)

Blindness can be found in different forms, such as the physical inability to see the world around.  “Blinded by the light” sounds like a description of seeing too much of one thing and unable to see anything else.  “Blind spot” denotes an obstructed view by something else.  We put blinders on a horse to direct sight in a particular direction instead of allowing complete vision of the surroundings.  A hunter will sit behind a blind to keep from being seen by the prey.  Blindness can be physical and/or spiritual, occurring by various means.

Father, I have grown to know that You see me clearly, fully, inside and out.  Very often, my view of You, however, can be obstructed.  Concerns of things in my past, things in my present, things in my future can erect a blind before You, keeping me from fully seeing Your face as You look upon me with Your marvelous love and grace.

“Jesus, I want to see.”  I’ll cry it out with Bartemaeus as his plea echoes down the centuries.  Remove whatever it is that veils my view of You.  I want to see You clearly, vividly, fully.  I want that sense in me that knows beyond any doubt that I am Yours, that You love me fully, … that I am Your beloved.  Here I am … blinded from seeing You clearly, yet awaiting Your healing touch, as You continue to make me just like You.  Amen.
