When you observe Jesus for the purpose of fitting Him into your plans, you can "look intently as you will, you shall not see" (Mt 13:14). This is because you "have firmly closed [your] eyes" to Who Jesus truly is (Mt 13:15). Repent of any allegiance to the secular culture, to the "god of the present age," which blinds you to the truth about who Jesus is (2 Cor 4:4).

Then, freed of spiritual blindness, you "may see and know, observe and understand" that Jesus is Lord (Is 41:20).

 
Prayer: "Lord...I want to see" (Lk 18:41).
Promise: "He sends forth His command to the earth; swiftly runs His word!" —Ps 147:15
