“See, Hear and Live” by Kirk Hunt
For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
Matthew 13:15 KJV
Healing can rarely be forced on someone. For best results, you must cooperate with healing. And the first step to true healing is knowing you need it.
The Pharisees of Jesus’ time knew all they wanted to know. They were the judges of wellness and sickness. Their interpretation of righteousness superseded every other version.
Jesus spoke to the elite few and they rejected Him, His message and they remained soul-sick. Jesus spoke to the ordinary many and they accepted Him, His message and they were soul-healed. The difference lay in the eyes and ears. One group wanted to hear, see and understand.
Want to stay sick? Easy. Run from His Word. Refuse to hear His truth.
Want to get well? Easy. Look into His Word. Insist on hearing His truth.
Of course, His truth has a sharp edge, no matter how softly worded. God’s Word hits hard, no matter what side of the tracks you live on. The question remains: do you want to be healed?
You have a choice today: healing or sickness. It is that simple. It is that easy.
Think: I want to hear God’s Word and truth because it heals me.
Pray: “Lord, help me to see and hear You so that I can be healed.”
