Do we have Scales on our Eyes?
In Acts 9:3-6
Christ confronts Saul for persecuting his disciples and takes his vision for 3 days. Saul falls to the ground and ask “Lord, what do You want me to do? Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city and you will be told what you must do.”
The Lord sends Ananias to Saul. “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive your sight, and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” Vs18: Immediately there fell from his eyes something like scales, and he received his sight at once; and he arose and was baptized.
Christ confronted Saul for persecuting him, he took his vision for 3 days. Then he sends Ananias to restore Saul’s sight and he was filled with the Holy Spirit.
You see Saul thought Christ was an imposter and he was persecuting his disciples. But the Lord got his attention on the road to Damascus and he allowed his eyes to be covered with something like scales. From that moment Saul knew that Christ wasn’t an imposter. Again, he knew it was Christ when HE sent Ananias to place his hand on him and “something like scales” fell from his eyes. Is this the way we are? We know Christ but we still have the scales on our eyes because we haven’t asked the Lord “what do YOU want me to do?” Are we afraid of what the Lord may ask us to do? Often we sinners, and yes we are all sinners; find ourselves wanting do to for the Lord but not outside our comfort zone. This isn’t what God wants, he wants us to step outside our comfort zone and seek his word and join him. Ask the Lord to help you remove scales and you will be able to see where the Lord is working and you can join him in his work. You see he is already at work around you, he’s inviting you to join him. Happy Monday Friends, if you took the time to read this I hope you receive a blessing from it and thank you. Love you all!
