“9 He who has ears, let him hear.” 10 The disciples came to him and asked, “Why do you speak to the people in parables?” 11 He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12 Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him. 13 This is why I speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14 In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: ” ‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. 15 For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ 16 But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.”
Vision does not come from the eyes but through the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit man has no vision. Without the Holy Spirit man is spiritually blind. In order to see the life God has for us we must first receive the Holy Spirit and allow Him to open our eyes to His will. It’s the same with our hearing Jesus said “He who has ears to hear let him hear.” Without the Holy Spirit we cannot hear what God is saying to us and in turn a man without guidance will wander aimlessly until he surrenders to The Spirit of God.
