KEY SCRIPTURE: John 9:19 ” And they asked them, saying, Is this your son, who ye say was born blind? how then doth he now see?”
When the parents of the man who was born blind were called to be interrogated, they asked, is this your son, who was born blind?” How then does he see now? They were saying in effect, if you were born blind, then it would be impossible to be healed. These people were just not ready to accept the truth about the supernatural, even if the evidence was so clear before them.
Why is this so? Men are fundamentally hardened towards God and His acts because of sin. (Heb. 3:13)”. But exhort one another daily, while it is called today, lest any of you be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin.”
Secondly, people get hardened toward God because of philosophy or human wisdom that opposes God. The next is sheer plain deceit. Col. 2:8 “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit…” The preceding verse says men are deceived through philosophy and vain deceit.
Some are also hardened towards God because of their inability to receive a miracle. They had a need or challenge, but might not have seen any change after they prayed for a while. What some fail to acknowledge is that it is one thing asking God about a thing, and it is also another matter of believing God to receive your request. It is not God, who fails to answer but rather, it is man’s lack of faith
Man in our modern times is ruled by science and physical tangibility. Science is purely confined to the natural world of space, time, and mass. There is definitely a world beyond the natural. This is the spirit or supernatural realm. This is God’s realm of existence. You would sadly deprive yourself of great blessings from God if you limit yourself to science.
This is what philosophy and some human wisdom hang on to.
The Lord Jesus said it is the spirit that gives life. The flesh profits nothing. John 6:63
Please lift your horizon from these human limitations to accept God’s realm of no limits.
Lord of glory, I submit my will to you and accept your awesome power and love for me. I pray and receive your miracle working power into my life in Jesus’ name.
Heb. 4:2″ For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.”
John 11:40″ Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?”
