According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook, an optometrist is a professional who performs eye exams to check for vision problems and diseases and prescribes eyeglasses or contact lenses as needed to help recover sight. The day after my Lasik eye surgery, I saw with such clarity that an incredible sense of joy just filled my being and I could emphatically relate to the expression of the blind man, whose sight Jesus restored – “I was once blind, but now I see.” (John 9:25).
Jesus said that the Spirit of the Lord was upon him and one of his charters was to recover sight to the blind (Luke 4:18). Jesus is The Optometrist, who can help you recover your spiritual sight in order for you to be able to see the sovereignty of God in your life. The Bible says, “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” (Matthew 5:8) and only Jesus can make us have a pure heart (by his grace through faith when we believe in Him). The devil (god of this world) has blinded the eyes of many who do not believe, lest the glorious light of the gospel of Jesus Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them (2 Corinthians 4:4).
Points to ponder:
Only with Jesus The Optometrist, can you truly say, “I was once blind, but now I see.” Are you blind or can you see? Has Jesus The Optometrist recovered your sight so that you can see the glory of God and bring glory to his Name?
Luke 4:18-19 (KJV)
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
John 9:25 (KJV)
25 He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.
