Earlier this year, I wrote a devotion regarding one’s blind spot. We are now in the 10th month of this year. As this year is winding down, it is a good time to take a look at your relationship with God. Check your blind spot — we all have them. Sometimes, we cannot see them because we are busy looking at someone else. All of us have made mistakes — for example, we do not always acknowledge God. But He knows that we all have blind spots. Once we take the time to find out what our blind spots are, we will not have the time to criticize or judge anyone else. We will come to realize we need to clean our own vision so that we can see more clearly. But we have to first be open to God so that we can see ourselves! In 1 John 1:8, we find these words:
“If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.”
The writer speaks about living in the light. He makes it clear that if we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not telling the truth. But if we confess our sins to Him, He is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. There are those of us who are still living with blind spots in our eyes. Unfortunately, we see the shortcomings of others. But as we continue to live in the light, we must cast light upon ourselves and ask God to remove the blind spots from us. I pray that once we have each removed the scales from our eyes, we will be able to see inward clearly. I pray that we ask God to shine His light upon us, so that we no longer walk in darkness, marred by the blind spots in our eyes!
