Matthew 9:27-30

“And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.” Then he touched their eyes, saying, “According to your faith be it done to you.” And their eyes were opened. And Jesus sternly warned them, “See that no one knows about it.”

How can the blind see but the seeing be blind? Matthew 9 is a great example of how this can be. It’s amazing that these two men were blind but could see their need for the mercy of God. 

In their darkened state, they had faith. Faith is all they could go on. They may have heard stories of Jesus and the miracles He performed but they did not see them with their own eyes. They had to have faith which is defined as believing without seeing. As a result of belief, they were healed. 

The Pharisees on the other hand had physically witnessed the miracles and wonders of Jesus with their own eyes yet were blind to the truth of who Jesus was. They did not believe and did have spiritual sight or understanding. 

Don’t let your darkened state affect your faith. You may not see a way out. You make think you are hopeless. You may be desperate. But there is always hope. Have faith in Jesus and trust He is a merciful God. There is always Hope even if you can’t physically see it in the moment. Trust Jesus as Lord and trust Him with the outcome.
