"The Hearing Ear, The Seeing Eye"

"The Hearing Ear, The Seeing Eye"

Proverbs 20:12 (KJV): "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them."

What is true of the "natural" creation is also true of the new or spiritual creation.

Of some Christ says Matthew 13:14 (KJV): "And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive."

Of others Matthew 13:16 (KJV): "But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear." These statements are set in the midst of the parable of the sower, a beautiful word-picture of the preaching of the gospel and its effect upon its hearers.

The teaching of Christ in Matthew 5-7 also presents many word-pictures. These words also reveal that God knows our very character and motivations, and gives us gentle instruction to turn our hearts unto the way of God.

We need to become as babes in his presence Matthew 11:25-26 so that we can respond to his call and loving care and guidance throughout our lives.
Matthew 11:28-30 (KJV): "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

Kind regards
