Until a Person Finds God

My eye doctor informed me that my eyes will never get better, or go back to the way they were before the disease set in them.  He said, “All we can do is maintain them so you can continue to see.” I said, “So the only chance I have then is if God heals me.”  He didn’t say anything.  I continued, “I know God can do it, and I ask him to and thank him for the healing often.”  Still nothing from him.  Then I had the bright idea to ask, “What would you do if God did heal me and I came in with perfect vision?”  He thought, for an awkward amount of time and then stammered.  I said, “You would be speechless like you are now.”  Then he said something I will never forget.  He said, “Well, I know one thing, I would not contribute the reverse in your condition to God healing you!”  After he stepped out of the exam room I said, “Okay God, the stage has been set!”

I do realize it can be difficult for highly educated individuals, doctors, scientist, etc. to get out of their “natural mind”, and think on a “spiritual” level.  The issue is compounded if they struggle to believe in a God they can’t see. They would rather make something up, even if its not true then believe in God. For example; scientist have done that with the subject of evolution. God explains the issue like this:

Someone living on an entirely human level rejects the revelations of God’s Spirit, for they make no sense to him. He can’t understand the revelations of the Spirit because they are only discovered by the illumination of the Spirit. 1 Cor. 2:14 (TPT)

The ironic thing is this; when my eyes are healed the eye doctor will see God’s work done by his hand, which could be thought of as “seeing God”.

A co-worker of mine, many years ago, was trying to see if God was real.  He went on a trip to the Grand Canyon, saw his handiwork and immediately accepted him into his life. Regardless if people know it, or ever admit it, they are seeking God their whole life until they find Him. One’s spirit man desires and seeks to be reunited with the Spirit of God once they have sinned and separation sets in.

Please take my word for it, accept God is real, and that He loves you so much. For He is always there waiting for you to look up and see him and take his hand.

  1. This brings back a memory of my first appointment with an eye doctor when we first moved to Kentucky. After my exam, he said my eyes looked good. “What about the cataracts?” I asked.
    “What cataracts?”
    “My last exam in Michigan I was told I had the beginnings of cataracts.” He picked up his little light and looked into my eyes again.
    “I don’t see any sign of cataracts,” he said. I smiled, delighted. I told him that every day I practice Romans 12:1 – I offer my body to God as a living sacrifice. So, these aren’t my eyes, they’re His. And God takes good care of His stuff. He smiled and told me we were on the same page. 😉

    • Wow! What an amazing testimony. And I learned just this week the word, “testimony” means, “do it again.” You and God are tight, and that is so cool that you know him so well. Thank you for sharing your “testimony” and I say to God, “Do it again, with my eyes.”
