18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Physical blindness is not a desirable state but spiritual and mental blindness are worse. Jesus Christ was manifested to destroy every form of blindness. He restored the sight of many physically blind as well as spiritually blind people during His earthly ministry.
The word “blind” in the above scripture reference is the Greek word typhlos, which means opaque like something that is smoky. The word can apply to someone who is physically, mentally or spiritually blind. It is likely that Jesus Christ was referring to physical and spiritual blindness in Luke 4:18.
The other conditions He was empowered to heal like the poor, broken-hearted and captives could have been both physical and spiritual. This suggests that the blindness in question was also likely to be physical and spiritual in nature. The mandate to destroy the works of the devil, was passed on to all believers (Mark 16:17-18). May you operate in the power and light of the Word of God to recover sight to the blind.
Pray for the grace and boldness to recover sight to both the spiritually and physically blind.
