The video below has gone viral, with over four million hits on YouTube. You can read all about it here. Sarah Churman, deaf for her entire life, hears her own voice for the fist time in 29 years after being given a hearing implant. I could not help after watching this video but think about the following verse:
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those whom love Him” (1 Cor. 2:9).
These things, Paul goes on to say, have been revealed to us through the Spirit. As amazing as it is to hear your own voice with your own ears (and it is truly amazing), just think of how much more amazing it is to have your ears opened to hear not your voice, but the voice of God! And should such amazement not bring us to tears of joy and thrill our hearts all the more?
As we have been informed in Proverbs, “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both” (Prov. 20:12), and that applies both physically and spiritually. Praise the Spirit of Him who has revealed to us what no ear as heard!
“In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear.” – Psalm 40:6
