Tuesday 5th November
“Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! For I tell you that many prophets and king desired to see that you see, but did not see it, and to hear what you hear, but did not hear it.” Luke 10:23-24
Jesus is talking to the Disciples. The Gospels often switch between the crowds and this much more intimate conversation. So imagine they are gathered together, leaning their heads inward toward Jesus and listening intently.
“You have a great privilege,” Jesus reminds them. “You are getting to see what many people have longed to see”.
We too have that same privilege, if we will allow ourselves to own it. We are invited to see and experience a life which holds close to God many of the things which we find most difficult.
Imagine what Jesus would say to you now. Lean your head in and listen carefully. What are you being invited to see? Perhaps the Disciples had become a bit too certain of how things would turn out, a bit over-confident in their own position or just needed a reminder of the amazing moment in which they were standing.
“Lord, today remind me that my vision of the world is blessed by you. Remind me of the privilege of your presence. Let me lean in and listen to you closely.”
