Topic: THE SCALES MUST FALL FROM MY EYES (https://burningbush.org.ng/category/devotional/)
Bible Reading: Acts 9:1-18
📖17….”And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
📖18….And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.”
🔥Scales are small, flat pieces of hard skin that cover the body of a fish or reptile. They don’t cover the eyes. But in verse 18 of our text above, the scales covered the eyes of Saul. Once scales are in man’s eyes, they hinder the person’s progress. Spiritually, scales in the eyes are like evil culture, custom, tradition, negative believes, religion of the fathers, evil magnets of witches and wizards, used to blindfold one from his destiny, and so on.
🔥🔥Saul was fervently defending the belief system of his people, as many believers today defend their family Church. But little did he know that God had changed the rules. He was by his zeal blocking himself and putting scales in his own eyes. No wonder Jesus said in Matt 15:2-3 that we transgress God’s command by our adherence to the tradition of the elders.
🔥🔥🔥Scales are in the eyes when one has not received God’s touch. If you refuse to believe and obey the Lord, scales build up in the eyes. If you still hold on to your former ways of life, scales become inevitable. If you are not rich towards God, scales are in your eyes. If you bite the finger that fed you, scales are in your eyes – Gen 21:9-10, 14,19. Beloveth, Saul suffered the effects of the scales in his eyes, but they eventually fell of. Our scales must fall off from our lives, and we shall do exploits for God as Saul did.
🙏Precious father, I command every spiritual scale covering my sight from seeing good things to fall off now in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, every delay in my life, which is a result of scales in my eyes, touch me to remove the scales, and launch me into the life of speed in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏O Lord, deliver me from the blindfold of cultural, traditional and and witch craft negative scales in Jesus’ name.
