they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,

Some examples of spiritual fluid power:
John 11:2 It was that Mary who anointed the Lord with fragrant oil and wiped His feet with her hair, whose brother Lazarus was sick.
James 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
Matthew 14:29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus.
John 3:23 Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized.
John 7:38 He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” 39 But this He spoke concerning the Spirit, whom those believing in Him would receive;

and who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from his heart
Our legacy of daily work goes back to Adam tending the garden (Eden). Is work a blessing or a curse?
It occurred to me that we can have one of two attitudes toward work. We can "tend the garden of the Lord" or we can view it as a curse. Well, since we have been redeemed from the curse through Christ, I believe our perspective on work has also been redeemed. If we view our job as our God-given garden, it can transform our mindset as we remember the blessing it is to labor for the Lord (and in His direct view).
