No Blind Spot

Updated: Apr 27

Psalm 139:1-12

You don’t have to be blind to know that you cannot see. All you need is something blocking your view. Some physical object or objects may be blocking your view of someone or something or someplace. If you are prevented from seeing something, usually due to no choice of yours, it is said that you have a blind spot. One of the most common activities where blind spots are reported is driving. We are trained to turn our heads to look right or left, depending on which side of the vehicle your steering wheel is located, in order to reduce our blind spots and prevent accidents from occurring.

If there are physical blind spots, it logically means that there are virtual blind spots as well. For example, we live with our spouses for decades and we know them very well, including fairly accurately predicting what they might do or say in certain situations. However, there is an area that some people often want to know, and notwithstanding how much they try, they fail almost all of the time. You can’t look at someone and conclude that you know what they are thinking in their mind. I know that we have studies in Psychology and behavioral profiling, but only God knows exactly what each person is thinking.

Also, just as there is virtual blind spot, there is also spiritual blind spot. As we probably already know, the spiritual controls the physical, and the things we see physically have already taken place spiritually. Thankfully, God gives gifts to reduce our spiritual blind spots. This could be Word of Knowledge or Discernment of Spirits. The emphasis is that only God gives these gifts. No one should be deceived by professional scammers who claim to be able to talk to the dead and some people visit them to speak to their dead ones. These people are called necromancers or sorcerers, and God expressly forbids this practice in the Bible.

What’s the summary of all of these? Human beings are deficient in many ways, and this clearly separates us from God, who is perfect and all-knowing. God’s omnipresence is beautifully described in Psalm 139. In verses 7-12, the Bible says:

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence? If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there. If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me. If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," Even the night shall be light about me; Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.

I love the last statement, it says that brightness and darkness are the same thing to God. This means that no one can hide from Him. There are some whose businesses take place in the dark because they don’t want to be seen by people or caught by law enforcement agents. They prey on the deficiencies of men to do evil. Thankfully, all glory to our God, they cannot hide, because there is no darkness with God. How can the creator of light and darkness not see what is happening in the dark? Even David, as close as he was to God, acknowledged his deficiencies in this area and clearly submitted to God’s amazing superiority. In verse 6, David wrote:

Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.

Shouldn’t the fact that God knows everything and sees everything and is everywhere at the same time mean something to us? It should. It means that God sees us, sees our sufferings, knows our needs, is able to protect us because nothing is hidden from Him. When you dial 911 to call the police, fire department or paramedics to an emergency situation, they sometimes take too long to arrive and during that time, lives are lost. Conversely, because God is already there, He cannot be late. Some people have given testimonies of how they were miraculously delivered by unseen hands and unseen or unknown people, and the people of the world would classify those situations as coincidental, but there is no coincidence with God. Even when we cannot speak of ask, yet He is there to intervene and deliver help and deliverance.

Are you anxious because of things you cannot see or things you don’t know or the future you cannot predict? Don’t be. We have a God who has no blind spots. He it is from whom nothing is hidden. Rest assured that He cares for you because His thoughts toward you are thoughts of good and not of evil (Jeremiah 29:11). Just as He promised, He will pilot you to the expected end.

If you are yet to give your life to Christ, you do not have a covenant with God and His promises do not apply to you. To come under these promises, please surrender your life to Christ today, by praying this prayer:

Lord I know that I am a sinner and I am unable to save myself. I am sorry for my sins and I pray that you please forgive me. I am aware that Your Son Jesus died for my sins and I accept Him as my Lord and savior. I surrender my life unto you from this moment. Please take control of my entire being and help me to be obedient to your Word, going forward. Thank you, Lord, for hearing me. I have prayed in Jesus’ name. Amen.

If you prayed the foregoing prayer, you have just been born again. Please find a Bible believing church in your area and ask to see the pastor. Let him or her know that you have just given your life to Christ and s/he will guide you on next steps in your journey as a child of God. The Lord bless you!
