Seeing the Unseen…
It gives me a deep, comforting sense that things seen are temporal and things unseen are eternal. ~Helen Keller~
Is the truly blind person the one who can’t see the things of this world, or the one that can’t see beyond them? In order for anything which you desire to be made manifest in your life, you must first be able to see it in the eye of your spirit completely…having determined there, that it already is a reality, simply not yet in evidence. Be steadfast in faith and hope, without wavering, and experience the power of the unseen.
Thought for the day
Can I see the solution? Can I picture myself as a man of total integrity, authenticity and faith, free of addictions and the shackles of my past life, being led to my eternal resting place by my Creator? Can I share my ideal with everyone I meet? Can I give them a glimpse of what I truly desire to be or am I too busy conforming to life in the world with all its secular standards?
For God Who said, Let light shine out of darkness, has shone in our hearts so as [to beam forth] the Light for the illumination of the knowledge of the majesty and glory of God [as it is manifest in the Person and is revealed] in the face of Jesus Christ (the Messiah). However, we possess this precious treasure…in vessels of earth, that the grandeur and exceeding greatness of the power may be shown to be from God and not from ourselves…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 4:6,7,18 (Amp)~
NOW FAITH is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
~Hebrews 11:1 (Amp)~
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man’s relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.
~2 Corinthians 5:7 (Amp)~
