SIGHT beyond what I SEE in the natural


While we do not look 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.

2 Corinthians 4:18

Our natural sight can deceive us into not seeing what we see. Okay, what do you mean Kim? That sounds oxymoronic. There are certain things that can only be seen through spiritual eyes. How are spiritual eyes obtained? Keeping the focus of your life on Jesus (Hebrews 12:2). To keep your focus on Jesus is a far weightier matter than just merely believing He exists. To focus on Him is to commit your life to Him and to put all of your trust in Him.

However, we cannot open our own spiritual eyes. We have to come to God through Jesus Christ and humbly cry out to Him–by repentance (Romans 10:9). After your spiritual eyes have been opened Jesus gave you a mission. We are to share the gospel through the power of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18).

Proclaim the Good News of the Gospel, engage in the Hope to which you have been called in Christ, discover revelation in the Word of God, recognize God’s power in every circumstance and see opportunities for evangelism.

Remember, YOU MUST SEE BEYOND WHAT YOU SEE WITH YOUR NATURAL EYES. We must know without a shadow of a doubt that whatever suffering we might endure right now, be it pain, or financial hardships WILL NOT negate God’s purpose and plan for our lives and in eternity with Him.

Be encouraged on today and keep your focus on God who is the Author and Finisher of your faith.

As a person living with a disability challenge is part of my life. I struggled with my identity and I recognize that I still have insecurities to face, but that doesn't mean I can't walk in everything God has purposed me to walk in despite my insecurities. Because of the nature of my condition and physical disability, God's grace is evident in my life everyday and I find strength in the word of God that says in Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through him who gives me power". (CJB).

    1. So true Dawn! I think we have a hard time with that because it defies our reasoning and experience. We live in a physical world that is limited by space and time. However, God dwells in a different dimension beyond our natural perception.

      1. I agree it’s hard for our natural minds to grasp. However it’s such an amazing privilege to be able to spirituality live outside of this realm through Christ.
