By smearing dirt on the blind man's eyes, Jesus was able to heal him. Because Jesus healed the blind man on the Sabbath, the Pharisees accused Him of being a sinner and not from God. They questioned the blind guy, trying to find any flaws in his story. They were offended when the blind guy said, “I don't know if he is a sinner or not.” I do know one thing. I was deafeningly deafeningly deafeningly deaf (James 9:25) The Pharisees were adamant in their refusal to believe that Jesus was from God, and the blind man knew only one thing: he had been healed by this guy. The blind man was then questioned if he believed in the Son of Man, as Jesus was widely referred as. The man replied that he did not know Him but wished to trust in Him. At that point, Jesus revealed to the blind man that He was the Son of God, who had done the miracle, and that He had come to provide sight to the blind.

After healing a physically blind man, Jesus reveals that He has come to open the spiritually blind's eyes. He deduced that the Pharisees were spiritually blind, claiming to see but walking in darkness spiritually.
The Lord is pleading with you to awaken your spiritual eyes and ears today. He longs to open your eyes to know Him, just as he did for the blind guy. Paul prayed, “I pray that your heart's eyes may be enlightened.” (1:18 in Ephesians) Pray for your heart's eyes to be opened to see Christ and for your ears to be sensitive to His Word.
Open my heart's eyes to see things clearly. Allow me to hear and obey You by removing any locations of “spiritual blindness.”
How do I open my spiritual eyes?
Have you ever desired for a psychic ability? Some think you should only look between your eyes.
The chakras are said to be wheel-like energy centers that run through your body and influence your well-being and perception. The sixth chakra in the body is the third eye chakra, which is also known as Ajna.
The location of this chakra is reported to be at the center of your head, parallel to the middle of your brows. It's linked to perception, awareness, and spiritual communion, according to experts.
When the third eye chakra is open, it is said to bring wisdom and insight, as well as strengthen your spiritual connection.
While there is no scientific evidence to back up these assertions, the third eye chakra is revered in many traditions and societies.
Let's take a closer look at what the third eye is, what it can accomplish, and how to activate it.
What is your spiritual vision?
Exodus 33 brought the scriptures of Moses to life. Jeremiah also promises that when we seek God, we will find him (Jeremiah 29:13), and this has shown to be true. The Bible doesn't say which aspects of God we should seek in particular; it just says that if we do, we shall find spiritual wealth. He arrived in the fullness of time. As the Lord had promised, his goodness came to me as a result of his gracious compassion. God knew I needed him now more than ever. He appeared to me as a caregiver and concerned friend, clothed in 1950s white physician's scrubs with a large smile and a warm, compassionate touch. “Is it you?” I inquired through tears when he arrived that day. He didn't say anything, but he came over and sat next to me the entire night. Since that day, he has frequently returned to me when I call out, “Come, Holy Spirit.”
You must understand, too, that I spent decades honing both my spiritual eye and my faith in God. For Christians, faith is more than just a set of beliefs. It's also a decision to accept the kind of faith that God wants us to have, one that is free of religious restrictions and taboo subjects. Because God is miraculous, he will seek to manifest himself outside of our theological framework. You will limit the Holy Spirit's activity if you desire your faith to be devoid of certain Holy Spirit gifts that make you uncomfortable (such as speaking in tongues, prophesy, immediate healing, and so on), since unbelief ruins the delicate doorway into spiritual sight.
Natural and spiritual eyes are the two types of eyes that humans have. Our spiritual eyes are commonly referred to as “my mind's eye” or “eyes of my heart.” Spiritual sight is similar to peripheral vision in that it is a form of visual twilight. It's not our imagination, wishful thinking, or psychic imagery that's causing the problem. Moses' burning bush exemplifies seeing with spiritual eyes: “The angel of the Lord appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed” (Exodus 3:2). With his normal eyes, Moses noticed a burning plant. His spiritual sight, on the other hand, peered deeper and saw that the bush was not burning at all. Spiritual sight is the ability to see but not see; or to perceive two things at once, both equally real but in distinct realms; both here and there (in a spiritual dimension.) It's as clear as mud, I know.
How do you become spiritually awakened?
Be aware of and deliberate about what you believe. Recognize the energy you're putting out into not simply your world, but the globe at large. Also, be truthful. Are your beliefs assisting you in your spiritual development? A spiritual awakening frequently necessitates the renunciation of long-held beliefs. But here's the thing about waking up: you have to realize you've been asleep first.
What is being spiritually blind?
“Being spiritually blind doesn't mean you can't see,” Sophia, ten, explains. “It denotes a lack of faith in God.” When Jesus restored sight to a man who had been blind since birth, it sparked a controversy among Jerusalem's religious leaders. On the Sabbath, Jesus purposefully and frequently healed.
What does the Bible says about sight?
The LORD restores sight to the blind, raises those who are bent down, and loves the upright. The deaf will hear the scroll's words on that day, and the blind will see out of the murk and darkness. The blind will be able to see again, and the deaf will be able to hear again.
What is spiritual vision in the Bible?
A vision is a supernatural appearance that usually imparts a revelation and is seen in a dream, trance, or religious ecstasy. Visions are often clearer than dreams, but they have fewer psychological implications. Spiritual traditions have been known to provide visions that can provide insight into human nature and reality. Visions are frequently related with prophecy.
How do you know if a vision is from God?
You're constantly dealing with them. You dream, plan, create, and execute week after week. But, at the end of the day, when everyone has gone home and the “atta' boys” have worn off… how do you tell the difference between a vision from God and a wonderful idea you came up with? Is it possible to have wonderful thoughts that aren't connected with God, since He created and gave us our abilities?
Here are three key indicators that an idea is a God-given vision rather than merely a good idea.
A God-given vision is BIG!
A good idea frequently emerges from our own creative human thought. If this is the case, it's simple to refute our own beliefs using various risk assessments:
God gave us brains for a reason, and He wants us to make good use of them. If your plan appears to be too safe or too simple, check with God to determine if it is truly part of His plan for you.
A God-given vision points to God!
When someone has a wonderful concept, the natural result or temptation can be glory or recognition for the person who came up with it. When God offers us a vision, though, it is frequently something that would be impossible if we were left to our own devices. Good ideas will fall short on their own, which is why God encourages us to collaborate with Him by bringing our ideas to Him and allowing Him to use them according to His purpose. Take a deeper look and see if it's actually part of God's vision for you if you're tempted to take credit or revel in the acclaim of your own wonderful ideas. Remind yourself that God has asked you (and your ideas) to participate. Remember Paul's advice when you start thinking your concept is the reason something succeeds. “Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him,” he says in Colossians 3:17. Remember that it is HIM who bestows our abilities, skills, and opportunities. He is entirely deserving of praise. Make certain that all of your wonderful thoughts lead back to Him.
A God-given vision lines up with truth!
God has wired us to plan, imagine, construct, create, and lead, and determining whether or not our wonderful idea came from Him might be one of the most difficult problems a leader has. Turn to truth when you don't know what to do! What does God's Word have to say about it? What kind of spiritual advice can you get? “Listen to advice and accept teaching, so that you may gain knowledge in the future,” Proverbs 19:20-21 states. Many are the plans that a man has in his mind, but only the Lord's purpose will stand.” When you're trying to figure out whether something is just a wonderful idea or if it's in line with the vision God has given you, seek insight. Seek understanding from God through prayer, reading His Word, and wise advice.
Remember, God gave us great ideas and abilities! It's incredible that the Creator of the Universe permits us to use that ability to further HIS tale and Kingdom. We must ensure that we are close enough to and in touch with our BIG God to understand how we may work FOR Him rather than against Him.
How do you know if your dream is spiritual?
Do you dismiss your recent nightmares as a result of anxiety? Or a means for your harried mind to assimilate the events of the day? While these components are likely to play a part in the development of dreams, they may not give the whole picture. We don't know what causes dreams, but I'm willing to bet that spiritual forces control a significant portion of our dream lives.
There's no denying that we're all feeling more anxious these days, and some dreams can just be a method for our minds to unwind after a long day. But what about those other dreams that disclose hidden sentiments we're too busy to notice? Dreams that were linked to your waking life and came true? Spirit guides could be the source of these profound dreams.
