About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
2 Corinthians 4:4 HCSB
In their case, the god of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers so they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
From Adam and Eve, humanity is born blind, inherits lies, and lives entirely in unreality. We have no true knowledge of God or of ourselves. We remain in the delusion of knowledge, the deception of fantasy, and the suspicion of God’s motive and nature.
No one is blinder than the one who thinks he can see and proceeds confidently down the road of life. The blind see no obstacle, and fall. The blind imagine a wall that isn’t there, and stumble. All humanity is blind until God intervenes and lets us see our blindness.
Jesus said, “If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit” (Mt. 15:14 ESV).
