Apostle Grace Lubega
Matthew 13:15 (KJV); For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.
The Greek word for see in our theme scripture is eido. Eido is translated among other things as ‘to know.’
The sight that the Lord refers to in this verse is not an ordinary kind of sight. It is sight that leads to knowledge.
In elevating our vision, God does not want us to merely see. He wants us to see and know. Whatever we behold must impart knowledge in our spirits.
The power of spiritual experiences is not only in what we see. It is in what we know as we see; what is revealed to us as we see.
I know ministers of the gospel who can see! They see details about people’s lives: phone numbers, names, addresses, parents and such like. But these same men cannot see to know. They cannot see revelation!
If your sight does not translate into knowledge, it is a form of blindness, regardless of how much you see.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If your spiritual sight does not translate into knowledge, it is a form of blindness, regardless of how much you see.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for the liberty to see. You have anointed my eyes with salve. I see much deeper than ever before. I behold the fellowship of the mystery and the riches of Your wisdom and knowledge, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
