Was blind but now. . .

RE Verse reading–Isaiah 6 (day one)  “In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple.” (vs 1)  Our scripture this week is a testimony.  In some respects it is extraordinary.  In others, it is so familiar that it is almost common.  Through a series of gracious events, a person who doesn’t see God, can’t perceive eternal reality or obligation, suddenly does!  Blind eyes see.  The Isaiah particulars may be unique but the story is same for Paul, Martin Luther, John Newton. . .When a person finally realizes that “God is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6)  salvation and a life of service are the result.  Referencing his own experience the Apostle Paul will later write, “I pray that the eyes of your heart will be enlightened”  (Ephesians 1:18)  It is my same prayer for us all.  Amazing grace. . .
