You see they know there is a God but they’re blinded. So often Israel was blinded by rebelliousness, idolatry – and they were stiff necked. We to can be guilty of this as we are going to see as we open this up further. They’re blinded to God’s creation. They are blinded to the fact that you can admire – you can look at His creation. You can acknowledge His creation each day as you give Him praise and glory. This helps with our faith and our relationship with Him.

Seeing God – or Inward Looking ?

How easy it is to believe in the power and might of God and yet doubt that He can provide for our everyday needs. That He can deliver us and look after us. Keep us whole in mind body and spirit. How easy it is to forget that. And yet we are confronted day in day out by the miraculous power and creation of Almighty God. We can be so blinded. So inward looking – failing to see what God has done and continues to do. And the children of Israel were guilty of this.
