He said that you could see things happening right before you that you would miss if you closed them.
I can’t say that I have followed that advice very much but I am starting to think about it again.
Just now, I finished reading about how Paul was watching someone while he was preaching and praying and that he saw faith grow in the man’s eyes. Paul immediately reached out in prayer asking God to heal him from his crippling limbs and the man stood up and walked.
I am once again thinking that I might just start doing this more often. Maybe there are things I have been missing as I have kept my eyes closed.
