BLINDED BY THE LIGHT

-Pastor Ryan Moreaux
“And Saul arose from the earth; and when his eyes were opened, he saw no man: but they led him by the hand, and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight…
Can you imagine the kind of light that is so bright that it left Saul blind? There is a light so bright that it will take away your sight. It is the glory of God. But he was blind for a purpose, because God said in Isaiah, “I will give you the treasures of darkness”. God said, “I will give you the treasures of darkness”. In other words, “I can show you some things blind that I couldn’t show you with your eyes wide open”. God is teaching us that sometimes eyesight is a disadvantage. “For we walk by faith and not by… sight”. Sometimes when we look at our circumstances, our circumstances do not reflect what we believe. And if you’re not careful, you will make decisions based on eyesight.
So God took away his eyesight so that he might attain insight. Oh, you didn’t hear that friend. God took away his eyesight so that he might attain insight. Oh, Take an extra sip of coffee and let that sink in! Insight is stronger than eyesight. Insight creates innovation. Insight creates productivity. Insight produces wisdom. Insight tells you when to hold your peace. Insight tells you who’s your friend and who’s your enemy. Insight tells you to keep going when everything else says quit. Insight says to walk out the boat on the water when the storm says to stay in. Insight tells you to take the promised land when all the giants say , “ stay in the wilderness”. Thank God for insight! I would rather have insight than eyesight. The great Helen Keller said, “It is better to be blind and have vision than to have sight and have no vision”. For we walk by faith not by sight! Don’t go off what’s around you, go off of what is inside of you!! #insight
