I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints and his incomparably great power for us who believe.

Ephesians 1:18

 

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:18

 

 

 

Prayer Points

 

 Pray that the eyes of our hearts will be enlightened so that we can know the hope to which God has called us.

 

Let’s pray that, like Paul, we can say that though we are outwardly wasting away, inwardly we are being renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16).

 

Pray for those in the last days of their lives, that they will come to ‘see’ Jesus, even if they have rejected him until now, there is still time.

 

         

     DAY 21 : SEEING

 

Joseph’s boy or the Son of God; deceiver or truth itself; a bloody corpse on a cross or the Son of God coming into his Kingdom; blasphemer or King of the Jews? It’s the same man through different eyes.

 

‘Blind Pharisees!’ said Jesus to those who looked at him but didn’t ‘see’ him. Paul, the Pharisee of Pharisees, was blinded before he truly ‘saw’ who Jesus was. In his letter to the Ephesians he prays ‘that the eyes of your heart may be opened’ to bring understanding, for it is not with our natural eyes that we see Jesus or his Kingdom, but with our spiritual eyes.

 

These are the eyes of faith, the eyes that see what is unseen. When we see with faith, that unseen world becomes more real than the physical world we live in. However, the hard realities of life can crowd out faith bringing in doubt, despair and unbelief if we are not careful.

 

‘Only believe!’ says Jesus. Trust what the eyes of faith show you. What do you see with the eyes of the heart? Jesus called himself ‘the truth’ and another word for truth is ‘reality’. Our unseen Lord is more real than any situation here on earth. Be encouraged today to believe again.

 

Perhaps you have given up on a promise from God or felt that the struggle of faith was too much for you? Then look up, use the eyes of faith to see Jesus, and believe again. Don’t be robbed
by the enemy of your soul who wants you to believe that the problem is too big – that Jesus offers only a vain hope. Fix your eyes on him and faith will rise again.
