Learning To Have Poor Eye Sight

Learning To Have Poor Eye Sight…

In Genesis 27, it describes the scene where Isaac, the father, is blessing his sons. He wants to bless Esau, but Jacob comes to him in disguise and Isaac ends up blessing him because he had poor eye sight. Because of that he would bless Jacob.

Now if he had good eye sight and he had seen Jacob for what he was he would not have given him that blessing.

So there’s a key; in order to bless these people in your life that you have a hard time with, you have to learn how to develop “poor eye sight.”

You look at them and you see all their faults, and you can’t forgive them, you can’t bless them. But, you know what? If you’re to bless them, you have to have faith not to see, but to see the blood of Jesus.

God has chosen not to see your sins in the blood of Jesus. The eyes of your heart need poor vision so that you will see only the face of God and you will be a blessing – because you are not only blessed by what you see – but by what you don’t.

To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy— Jude 1:24

Today seek to develop poor eyesight – poor eyesight for the faults, shortcomings, weaknesses, and sins of others.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
