Billy Graham on Blindness


ACT 26:18 NIV – to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’

Eyes to See

The blind man, Bartimaeus, threw off his cloak and ran trembling to Jesus. And Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you?” He said, “Lord, that I may receive my sight.” In that moment as he said, “Lord,” his spiritual eyes were opened. And Jesus said, “Your faith has made you whole.” Notice—not your intellectual understanding, not your money, not your works—but your faith. Faith! That’s all it takes! Immediately Bartimaeus, who had been blind all of his life, began to open his eyes, and the first thing he saw was the face of Jesus. What an experience—to open one’s eyes and look straight into the strong, tender face of Jesus! Bartimaeus met Jesus and the record says he “followed Jesus in the way.” When you go back to your business, or your home, or your neighborhood, or your friends, or your school, you don’t go alone. Christ goes with you.

Daily Prayer

Thank You, Lord Jesus, for healing me from my spiritual blindness!

  1. Appropriate verse for OCT 31! Satan loves today, it’s his day to celebrate the darkness and so many are happy to join in the festivities . . . I hand out Christian tracts to the children who come to my door . . . hoping to expose these little witches and vampires to HIS light!
