“Blessed Perception” by Kirk Hunt
But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear.
Matthew 13:16 KJV
There is no equipment failure. There is no some sensory denial field. There is the choice you make.
You choose to look into His Word. Or you choose to run. Probably screaming like a little kid. There is no third way.
Jesus was talking to His Disciples about the Pharisees. He was also talking to His disciples about their choices. You do not heal a sick soul by accident.
Looking into God’s truth can hurt. A lot. His Word is full of power and holiness. His truth will react fiercely with your sinful nature and imperfect character. There will be at least some fury and furor as His purity drives out your profane. I know this from experience.
The good news is that His Word will heal you. In ways you did not anticipate, yet alone desire. Folks will see your change and want to know why and how.
In the end, you will be grateful for your transformation. The folks around you will also be grateful for your healing. After giving them relief, your healing will also give them hope.
It is a blessing to look into God’s Word. Make the choice to be healed, by seeing and hearing His strong medicine. Try not to flinch too much.
Think: I want to hear God’s Word and truth because it will heal me.
Pray: “Lord, help me to see and hear Your Word so that I can be healed.”
