Why did I not see it before?

There have been more times than I can count that I can read the same passage over and over and see the same thing. I can at a later time read that same passage and my eyes are open to something so special and exciting! I believe there is a reason for the perfect timing of the mystery shown to us.

Luke 24:25-32
He said to them, “How foolish you are, and how slow to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Messiah have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?” And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he explained to them what was said in all the Scriptures concerning himself. As they approached the village to which they were going, Jesus continued on as if he were going farther. But they urged him strongly, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening; the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them. When he was at the table with them, he took bread, gave thanks, broke it and began to give it to them. Then their eyes were opened and they recognized him, and he disappeared from their sight. They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

It has already been reported to the disciples that Jesus has risen from the dead. Two disciples on their way to Emmaus encounter Jesus, but they are kept from recognizing Him. Jesus immediately seeks to get involved in their conversation, and they provide to Him their version of what is going on. These two disciples are downcast because nobody has actually seen Jesus, and their hearts are filled with doubt. They are walking and talking with Him but do not recognize Him. Even after opening scripture to them, they do not know Him, but they invite Him in. It is only after they extend this invitation to Jesus that He reveals Himself to them. Be courageous today and invite Jesus to reign in your heart and in your mind. Receive Him as your one and only Messiah.
