He Has Magnified His Word, Psalm 138:2

Double Blinded

Jhn 9:6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay. (b)

Jesus, in His act of healing this man made it a gradual process rather than immediate transformation. He demonstrated that spiritual healing takes time and is a gradual process. It cannot be achieved instantly, as some may have quick realizations while others may take longer. Jesus used clay on the blind man’s eyes to symbolize the need to acknowledge our worst state before we can truly believe and be guided. This is seen in the humbling experience of Samson and Saul, who were blinded and had rely on God through prayer.

God often works in unconventional ways, making individuals realize their own blindness before granting them sight. Paul’s conversion involved being struck blind for three days, after which he gained spiritual sight. To acquire spiritual wisdom, we must embrace our own foolishness and become uncomfortable with our blindness before we can experience true healing and understanding.
