WHAT ARE YOUR EYES LOOKING AT?
II Corinthians 4:18 [KJV] While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
II Corinthians 4:18 [Amplified] 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.
When life begins to squeeze us, what we truly believe is revealed through our attitudes and actions. And, the truth be told, most of us live by sight more than by the hope and certainty of our faith.
With the patience of Job, Jesus tells us again and again that we have to look past the things we see and look into the eternal reality of the unseen.
When people approached Jesus to tell him about their circumstances, he’d often say something like, “You’re looking for a drink of water, but look past your circumstances because I’m the living water. I can quench your thirst for eternity, not just in this moment. Can you see it?” Or, “You want to see bread right now, but I want you to see that I am the living bread. I can feed you for this one meal, but—Look!—I can feed you for all eternity. Can you see it?” [JOHN 4:14]
In one of those grand, mysterious paradoxes of our faith, Jesus says we should see the unseen. The way to do that is to stay intimate with him and to let the Holy Spirit direct our sight, both our physical eyes and our spiritual eyes.
When we believe that reality is confined to only what we see, we become trapped in a cage into thinking the only truth is what we see. We become prisoners to our perceptions; we cease to be freedom fighters walking in faith. [I Corinthians 5:7]
Time and time again we see Jesus moving the focus from the seen to the unseen. He knew that for those who walk by faith, appearances are never the ultimate reality.
FOCUS YOUR SPIRITUAL EYES.
SO YOU CAN SEE WHAT GOD’S DOING CORRECTLY
