I recently had a conversation about Psalm 24. We were reading Psalm 23, 24, 27, and Isaiah 53 in different translations, and after reading and discussing the meaning of these readings. The person's comment was, " I just don't understand why they can't see it." I was silent for a moment and stated, it's because they are spiritually blind. We discussed what spiritual blindness looks like a bit more, and thus this post was created.
We have the unique privilege of having an authentic relationship with our creator. He talks to us, we can talk to Him, and He listens. This is a privilege many more people should take advantage of. I admit I was not always that person either. The more I live this life; the more necessary I have discovered becoming filled with spiritual insight is an appetite I want to nourish daily.
Spiritual blindness can be described similarly to physical blindness. Everything is dark around you, you need guidance to assist you, and you have no physical sight.
Question: Do you hold the title Christian but your actions are far from what it means to see the light?
Spiritual blindness can be fixed quicker than physical blindness if you are willing to put in the work. With spiritual blindness, one can pray, read the word, understand the word, apply it, live it, and be transformed (not overnight). This journey is ongoing and is worth the work. You will always continually grow, develop, build on one of the most important relationships you will ever have the privilege of having.
