Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God. 2 Corinthians 4:4. NLT
For the lost, the hardness of heart comes from 3 areas (the Devil, the deceitfulness of sin, and denial of truth) all of which involve difficulties with seeing and hearing spiritually.
We must not be amazed at the inability of a lost person to comprehend the love of Jesus. The devil has created a veil that blurs their vision and clouds the image. We look upon them with grace, for we too formerly walked in darkness.
So, our prayer for the lost is that God would bind the work of the enemy that has caused the blindness. Then we plead for the mercy of God to open their eyes so that me see and understand the love of Jesus.
According to Revelation, there is a spiritual eye salve that we can receive from God to anoint our eyes that we may see (Rev. 3:18). May this be the year that Jesus opens the eyes of the blind.
Blessings, Love y’all
