“One Year Bible” New Testament Passage
But their eyes were restrained, so that they did not know Him. Luke 24:16
Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him… Luke 24:31a
And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scripture. Luke 9:45
Walking with Jesus is not a static matter of learning a set of rules or truths and then slavishly following them. Instead it is a dynamic relationship of growth and depth of understanding – of hearing and following the intimate working of the voice of God in Scripture and in the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
There was a season in which the disciples had to walk in darkness. They did not understand, but instead they had to walk in pure trust and faith. Then there came a moment in which their eyes were opened and they saw more clearly WHAT GOD WAS DOING. It was what we might call an “Ah-ha” moment. By the sovereign work of God their eyes were opened.
God delights to lead us in this way. There are seasons in which it seems the path is cloudy – yet we continue to walk. Then, in a moment, God shows us His hand. If we walk with Him through this process, we will grow. And in growing, we will be prepared for the next step in His plan. So, TRUST, WAIT, and allow God to open your eyes – wider and wider.
