The more we believe and follow Christ, the more we are likely to see, feel, and experience His intervening power.
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Christ has the power to heal, and when we believe, we have Christ’s power within us.
Several places in the bible we hear of Jesus healing the blind. In Mark 10:46-52, Bartimaeus receives his sight and Jesus tells him to go and do the things He’s planned for him. By telling him to go, Jesus was telling him to rise above the circumstances he was in, and start living in his new circumstances.
Often times we have scotomas with things and relationships that are closest to us because we only see a small portion of the big picture. It’s like focusing on one piece so closely that we can’t see the rest of the picture to recognize Christ’s intervening power.
God has the bigger picture in mind, and if our eyes aren’t open, we might miss those opportunities. The more we believe and follow Christ, the more we’ll see the bigger picture, and experience His intervening power.
When was a time you saw God intervening and gave you an opportunity to share a piece of His kingdom with another here on earth?
How or when do you recognize your own scotomas, and how does turning to Christ help you “see”?
