Vs. 16—I will lead the blind by a way they did not know; I will guide them on paths they have not known. I will turn darkness to light in front of them and rough places into level ground. This is what I will do for them,
Acts 9: 3-5— As he traveled and was nearing Damascus, a light from heaven suddenly flashed around him. Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?” “Who are you, Lord?” Saul said. “I am Jesus, the one you are persecuting,”
Vs. 17-18—(Ananias) said, “Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road you were traveling, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” At once something like scales fell from his eyes, and he regained his sight.

1 John 3: 23— Now this is his command: that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ, and love one another as he commanded us.
Hebrews 10: 25— not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.
Acts 26: 16-18— (The LORD to Paul) “For I have appeared to you for this purpose, to appoint you as a servant and a witness of what you have seen and will see of me. I will rescue you from your people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”
Jesus said to His followers,
John 4:35— Open your eyes and look at the fields, because they are ready for harvest.
