“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him. The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”

Vision is powerful!
In your journey to fulfilling your purpose, one of the deepest impediments you will face is a periodic blurry vision or the many interfering distractions that often cause a loss of focus on what is important and urgent.
It is so vital that over and again the Lord asks about what we see (Jeremiah 1:11a-The word of the LORD came to me: “What do you see, Jeremiah?”).
What we see determines so many things in our life;
It determines what direction we take.
It determines what goes on in our hearts.
It determines our passion and persistence.
As the Lord asked Jeremiah, he is also asking you about what you see.
So Jesus meets this “obviously” blind man and yet asks him “What do you want from me?” He makes no assumptions.
The man’s pressing need though obviously blind may not be his sight. He may ask for money, clothes, an artificially intelligent stick, a robotic guide, or emotional health, as many would have done today.
Jesus asked to see if this man knew exactly what was important. The man rightly asked for sight!
Full restoration of vision is vital to your life’s journey.
From time to time you need to re-evaluate your focus and vision.
Where do you see yourself in the future?
What do you see at work?
How do you see the family?
What have you seen in your country?
All these determine your level of sacrifice, commitment, and passion.
So you must know in your heart of heart what is most important. And in the place of prayer, when the Lord asks you what you want, be bold to ask for full restoration of your vision in any of the areas of your life where you lack clarity and clear sight.
Remember in the book of the beginning, Genesis 1. When everything was without shape and blurry, the first thing God created was light! And that light was not the sun, moon, or stars, those were created on day 4. I believe the light here represents vision, purpose, order, and a sense of direction.
It is time to see new possibilities and opportunities in the chaotic system of the world around you.
You have to speak forth what you see and pursue the great destiny God has appointed for you.
LET US PRAY:
Heavenly Father, Open and flood the eyes of my heart with light and understanding that I may see clearly. All veils and scales fall off today, let there be a full restoration of vision in every area of my life.
Lord, help me to accept the reality that my life is on a pilgrimage, not a Lockdown! Give me the grace to soar on new “wings of faith”. Open my heart and my eyes to see what new dimension beckons upon me. Help me to be pulled into the reality of my prophetic future.
I receive Light, inspiration, direction, and grace. I declare my old life of woes is past, and a complete new season has come for me! I am the Light of the world, I reject confusion and anarchy.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen
