(Learn To “See” The Invisible)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
2 Corinthians 4:18 NASB “…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.”
▶️ LET’S TALK
The Lord doesn’t want you to observe situations or circumstances of life from the natural standpoint. He wants you to see the invisible, with the eyes of faith, through His Word. Whenever you trust God for something, others may not see it, but you must maintain the picture of what you see in your heart. You weren’t born for nothing; you were born for a reason! Your life is for the glory of God. The question is, can you see the glory in your life? Can you see that you’re not ordinary? Can you see that the mighty hand of God is upon you?
You’ve got to visualise it and say, “Yes, Lord! Your glory is in my life! I can see you working in me, and through me; therefore, I’ll always be a success.” It doesn’t matter if you’ve found yourself in some kind of “wilderness” right now; shift your focus to the Word. Look away from that distressing situation unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2).
2 Corinthians 4:17 says, “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” In other words, that pain, unpleasant situation, or challenging circumstance may have been for five years, but it’s for a moment; it indeed came to pass! It’ll work for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. How? By you learning to behold the invisible (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Stop looking at your present physical condition. Stop looking at your past mistakes or failures. Stop listening to or looking at the negative things people are saying about you. Instead, activate your faith-eyes to see beyond your present horizon. See God doing great things with your life, and you living out the very best of what He has prepared for you in this world.

2 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 12:2
Dear Father, I look away from all distracting situations, and I fix my gaze upon Jesus, the Living Word. I walk by faith and not by sensory perception. I thank you for the Holy Spirit who dwells in me, and causes me to see the mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom, and apprehend my inheritance in Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
