July: Our month of EXCEEDING GREATNESS.
TOPIC: SEE THE UNSEEN!
Paul wrote; “Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting) but, the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting”. 2 Corinthians 4:18
By faith we recognize the existence of the spiritual world and also learn to depend on the lord for His help in our daily lives. George Mac Donald wrote; “grow eyes to see the unseen”.
The writer of Hebrews says that Faith is “…the evidence of things not seen…” Hebrews 11:1. However, by faith, we recognize and understand that the worlds during the successive ages were framed and fashioned by the word of God so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.
C.S Lewis wrote; in a materialistic world like ours, we are tempted to conclude that the only real things are those we experience with our five senses (smell, sight, hearing, taste and touch). Yet, there are things we cannot see: things behind our backs or far away and all things in the dark.
The realm of faith is another realm of reality just as substantial as anything we see, hear, touch taste or smell in this world. Faith sees things that are out of the physical sight. Remember, the Just shall live by faith and not by sensory/sensual perception. Please stay tuned for more on this topic.
Prayer: Oh God, help me to see the unseen in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
