2 Corinthians 4:18 – “… 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 temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
If we are to fulfill God’s will for us as His children, we must learn to see. Seeing is central to everything that the kingdom of God has to offer. There is a reason why the first thing God created was light (Gen 1:2-3). The just (that is, the Christian) shall live by faith (Romans 1:17), faith being the evidence of things not (physically) seen. The way faith works is that we must first see what is unseen, and develop confidence in it, and then it manifests (Gen 15:5-6). One of the greatest gifts we have been given as believers is the ability to see. But too often, we do not use it.
