REAL POWER: MAXING OUT ON GOD'S LOVE
I CAN'T SEE YOU GOD. IS THERE A
In developing countries, millions of
people are blind from mature cataracts. Iím not referring to the mild
type of lens opacities that people call cataracts in the western
world. Iím talking about blindness where you see nothing at all.
Your vision is reduced to light perception, and you can only tell if
itís night or day.
Blindness in the third world is
different from blindness in the industrialized nations of the west.
Blindness is a one-way ticket to Nowhere Land. Blind people donít
have a life of their own. They are totally dependent on the people
who take care of them. In most developing countries, the only help
blind people receive is from their own family. If they have no
family, they are in big trouble. There are no government agencies to
assist them, no seeing-eye dogs, and no white canes to help them walk
through the bush or jungle.
One of my patients lived on the
border between Saudi Arabia and Yemen. He lived alone in a small
house dependent on the help of his neighbors. He had mature cataracts
in both of his eyes with only light perception vision. Thieves came
over the border from Yemen and broke into his house, beat him up, and
stole the few things he owned.
Some of the people in the community
loaded him into a car and drove him for sixteen hours to the eye
hospital in Riyadh to receive treatment. We admitted him to the
hospital so he could have cataract surgery and get his life back. At
least if he had vision, he would have a fighting chance against the
thugs and riff raff that might return from over the border. Removing
his cataracts made a positive difference in his life.
I remember the first time I performed
cataract surgery on a person who was blind from mature cataracts. On
the first post-operative day, I took the patch off the operated eye
and a huge smile came across my patientís face. For the first time in
years, he could see. Saying that he was happy and grateful is an
understatement. It was almost as if the patient was born again. He
had his life back and became a new person.
In a similar manner, billions of
people suffer from spiritual blindness. They wander aimlessly through
life because they canít see where they are going. Negative thinking
and despair march into their life, beat them up, and steal their
dreams. They have never felt the power of Godís love or dared to call
Godís specialty is treating spiritual
blindness. When He performs spiritual surgery, their inner vision
instantly improves, and they are able to see God for the first time.
WHAT YOU PUT INTO YOUR
BODY AND MIND ARE IMPORTANT
A patient came to my clinic with a
history of sudden and profound visual loss. I looked at the optic
nerves in the back of his eyes, and they appeared chalky white. Such
an appearance is typical for damage caused by drinking methanol.
In the culture in which I was
working, it was forbidden to drink alcohol. Therefore, it was
difficult for the average man on the street to find legal sources of
alcohol. I questioned this man about drinking, and he steadfastly
denied he had ingested any forbidden substances. The appearance of
his optic nerves told a different story.
For about fifteen minutes, I
questioned him on the different things he might have imbibed.
Finally, he admitted he had taken a bottle of perfume, poured it into
a cup, and drank the whole thing.
When he woke up the next morning, he
noticed that his bedroom seemed dark. He asked his wife to open the
windows so light could shine into the room. His wife said the windows
were open, and the room was full of light. His vision was so bad he
didnít know that daylight was streaming into the room. He had
irreversible blindness caused by drinking perfume containing methanol.
I have examined many patients who are
blind from putting methanol into their body. No one can tell me it
doesnít matter what you put into your body.
I have also examined many people who
have put toxic waste into their mind. They are now spiritually blind
and have lost their ability to see God. No one can tell me it doesnít
matter what you put into your mind.
What you put into your mind affects
your inner vision. When you spend years filling your mind with toxic
waste, you become spiritually blind and lose your ability to see God.
People act as if what they put into
their mind doesnít matter. They freely sample everything on the
smorgasbord of life and fill their mind with toxic waste. One day
they wake up and realize they canít see God.
BLESSED ARE THE PURE
IN HEART FOR THEY SHALL SEE GOD
Jesus said, ďBlessed are the pure in
heart for they shall see God.Ē Jesus was talking about the Law of
Spiritual Vision. What is this law?
The Law of Spiritual Vision
states: Only the pure in heart can see God. The pure in heart have a
special blessing. They have twenty-twenty spiritual vision. People
who fill their heart and mind with toxic waste become spiritually
blind. What you put into your heart is vitally important, because it
determines your ability to see God at work in your life.
