Mark 8:24 And he looked up and said, ” I see people but they look like trees walking.”
This man could begin to see once Jesus Christ prayed but he didn’t really know what he was looking at. We can’t know if what he lacked was focus, depth perception or if he was simply confused. We are all sometimes a bit like him. We are beginning to walk in some new opportunity, ministry or relationship but in spite of the excitement of the moment we still are stumbling over our own feet. We see people but not as God sees them. Tonight rather than being discouraged we need to go back to the Lord. Yes He has begun the blessings but He isn’t through yet. Take this moment to place again into His hands what He has begun and He himself will give us His own 20/20 heavenly vision!
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
The best compass in any situation is the gentle direction of the true peace of God that comes from the True God of peace.
And he took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the village, and when he had spit on his eyes and laid his hands on him, he asked him, “Do you see anything?” And he looked up and said, “I see people, but they look like trees, walking.” Mark 8:23-24
When life seems a lot like trees are walking, the good news is that Jesus isn’t finished with us yet!
Then Jesus laid his hands on his eyes again; and he opened his eyes, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Mark 8:25
Do remember me…Way beyond the blue!
