All I know is . . .
I was talking to a friend who is a bonafide modern day prophet this week and the subject of my eyes came up. He inquired how I was doing, and I told him that after the operations the left eye was now 20/20, but unfortunately the right could not be corrected due to the macular degeneration. The doctor then told me that nothing further could be done. I told my prophet friend that Jesus healed the blind by taking some dirt and spitting into it and rubbing it on his eyes. He had a twinkle in his eye as he offered to spit in my eye. I told him he was not Jesus and I thought I’d pass and we had a good laugh about it. He then said let’s pray about it and he began praying. The more he prayed the louder he got until he was shouting at the top of his lungs. It was so loud inf fact that I feared he might pierce my eardrum and ruin what little hearing I have left and then I’d be deaf and blind.
He was praying in tongues and the next thing I knew, so was I, and this went on for quite some time. Whew! I was exhausted when finished. The next morning, (yesterday), I went back to the doctor for my post-op. I took an eye exam and noticed that my right eye seemed clear and sharp. After some tests, they determined that my vision in both eyes is now 20/20.
When I queried the doctor, pointing out that just a few of days earlier in that same room he’d told me nothing further could be done, he looked embarrassed and then quickly said that sometimes right after an operation such as mine the eye remains blurry and then improves over time.
Okay . . . So was my vision restored due to the prayer or as a natural consequence. I believe it was prayer, not only my prophet friend’s prayer, but the prayers of all those folks around the world who also prayed for a miracle. Some of you will doubt and that is fine. Some just cannot accept anything but a scientific explanation. I believe even if it was the doctors, laser surgeries, myriad of drops, and so on that it is still a miracle of God and all the foregoing are just tools God used to restore my vision.
I was reminded of the time the Pharisees were grilling the man born blind that was healed. They would not accept the power of God and were trying to get him to agree with them. He told them he could not speak to their accusations about Jesus and then said, “One thing I do know that I was blind, but now I can see.”
My sentiments exactly. I could barely read a billboard and now I can see a tiny bird sitting in a tree. Praise God almighty from whom all blessings flow. To God be the glory! Selah . . .
So many folks doubt the Bible and the Lord. I used to be in that group. I am so happy that I saw the light of Jesus. I pray for those of you who cannot accept that God is God. He is in the miracle business. Believe and have your eyes opened. Amen
For this judgment I came into this world that those not seeing might see, and those seeing might be blind.
