“Ephphatha!”— that is, “Be opened!”
First Jesus takes the deaf man to a spot alone. He looks to heaven and he says, “be opened.” Jesus looks to heaven. So many times in my own life I pray and just look to myself. I think the result will come from my own doing, even though, I am sort of asking God to take care of it.
But God says, “be opened.” In our daily lives, we must be open to his heavenly work. To the miracles that he can perform in our lives and in that openness we must look to heaven.
