Mark 8:22-25- Jesus heals a blind man 

22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”

24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”

25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

The message 

Although the man was blind and had waited for years by Bethsaida, he had to leave the familiar environment to get the healing.

Healing may come from unfamiliar places 

Though he was blind, Jesus took him by the hand, Jesus led him.God has got a hold on me

My grip may slip but God got me 

People may call me by how they met me, they may not even know my name. They call him a blind man, his state state of being and not his identity 

Every touch has a test, you cannot enjoy the touch if you are not going to endure the test. 

Men walking as trees, is the blurred stage of life. A blind world a blurred church

The question is can I walk with God in my blurry stage. The blurred stage is a dichotomy of too much blindness to be sighted and too much sight to be blind. The state of being clear about this and blind about that. The stress of our life comes from that.


Peter was a rock about this and devilish about the other

Whilst you are spiritual and righteous about this you are wrong about that 

How can I be bright in my workplace yet blind in my family life. Blind in my writing yet blind in my talk

The pressure of being in the blurred space. 

I’m not what I used to be but I’m not what I’m going to be 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿stop making definitive statements in a blurred stage. I have to stay right where I am 

Take note of the pressure of making decisions in a blurred stage. Don’t take the shot,the aiming will be so bad , the shot will be deadly 🙊🙊🙊🙊

Stop acting like you can see more than what you can see. The blind man , hopeful for a miracle didn’t say he can see clearly even when he didn’t 

God will give me a second touch but God needs me to be honest. God needs me to tell the truth even if it looks and sounds bad. God is not through with me

If I would come clean and humble myself , God will give me another touch!!!!
