“What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked.
‘My rabbi,’ the blind man said, ‘I want to see!’”
Mark 10:51 (NLT)
“I want to see.” That may be an obvious answer for a blind person who is asked by Jesus, “What do you want me to do for you?” Sight is a precious gift that we easily take for granted. But as I read this I thought, I too need to ask for sight. Not physical but spiritual. I am so blind to the things of God. The cry of my heart is “I want to see”. I want to see like the servant of Elisha who was afraid of the enemy armies until Elisha prayed, “O LORD, open his eyes and let him see!” The Bible says, “The LORD opened the young man’s eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire.” He saw reality with spiritual eyes. I also want to see the way Paul prayed we should see. He wrote, “I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.” Today when God asks you, “What do you want me to do for you.” Answer, “Help me to see.”
Father, help me with my spiritual blindness. Open my eyes Lord that I may see what you want me to see.
