And he looked up and said, ‘I see men like trees, walking.’ Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly. – Mark 8:24-25.
In the gospel, we read about Jesus healing a blind man in a unique way. He first spat on the man’s eyes and laid hands on him. After this initial touch, the man could see, but his vision was blurred—he saw people looking like trees walking around. Jesus then placed His hands on the man’s eyes again, and made him look up again. At that moment, the man’s sight was fully restored, and he could see everything clearly. The blind man then saw everyone clearly. Spiritually, our Lord touches us until we see clearly.
As we seek His guidance, He clarifies and confirms His will, again and again. He gradually illuminates what we need to understand. We never have to walk in darkness when we follow Jesus. He is the light of the world, and when our paths seem clouded, we can trust Him to touch us until our way forward is clear.
Our Lord anoints our eyes to see so we can perceive the plans He has for us. Receiving His sight, His vision for us, gives greater clarity to everything we see. We begin to see Him, others, and even ourselves in a new, more glorious light. What a blessing to realize that our current limited vision is temporary. His guiding hand is always upon us, leading us, from glory to glory!
