Blessed are your eyes and ears.
“Blessed are your eyes for they see, and your ears for they hear, for assuredly, I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it.” – Matthew 13:16
How do we see and how do we hear?
By the Spirit of God, the Word is first of all received and then revealed in our hearts. What is happening on the inside of us will inevitably be revealed on the outside. It is impossible for God’s Word not to bear fruit in our lives. If you bear no fruit, it means the seed has been sown on stony or thorny ground (Matthew 13:1-9). The Word of God never changes, but our understanding of it does.
Psalm 119:18 says, “Open my eyes that I may see the wonderful things in God’s Word.” God’s Word should bear much fruit in our lives.
God’s Word, is a seed, that we need to read and hear daily. It needs to fall on good ground and bear much fruit and produce a deeply rooted work in our souls. I pray that God’s Word will fall on good soil.
May God bless your eyes and your ears so that you can hear and see, clearly. Amen (Matthew 13:16).
