You Will Indeed Hear But Never Understand

Omniscient God, Paul told the Jews in Rome of Isaiah’s prophecy regarding their unwillingness to accept the truth: “From morning till evening he expounded to them, testifying to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus both from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. And some were convinced by what he said, but others disbelieved. And disagreeing among themselves, they departed after Paul had made one statement: ‘The Holy Spirit was right in saying to your fathers through Isaiah the prophet: ‘Go to this people and say, you will indeed hear but never understand, and you will indeed see but never perceive.’ For this people’s heart has grown dull, and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed; lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and understand with their heart and turn, and I would heal them.’” Acts 28:23–28 (ESV). Lord, unstop our ears and restore our vision, we pray, and prevent our hearts from growing dull. Let us always perceive your will for our lives. We ask in Jesus’ name. Amen.
