Scripture and a Picture – What is the Unseen?

Scripture and a Picture – What is the Unseen?

2Corinthians-17-and-father-of-lights

On the weekend I looked at 2 Corinthians 4:17-18.

I am working at memorizing this verse. It is LONG. I have been taking it in short sections:

For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far out weighs them. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

I see the entrance to the unseen as a portal. I wrote about 5 Ways to Stronger Prayers and as I read this over I realized that these also help us to find a portal to the UNSEEN.

The Scripture that also has been on mind this week is James 1:17:

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

That is what is unseen  – our heavenly Father.
In order to fix our eyes on Him we need to have a strategy.

It’s not easy to fix our eyes on something we can’t see, is it?

That’s why we have to be intentional about our faith. With all the hubbub in our lives, we need to make time for the quietness of God. He is found in the silence. Some may argue that they can hear Him at all times – in noise and quiet. I say – good for you. But my brain is not wired that way. I am too stuck in this world to hear God when noise is going on and my head can’t focus on connecting with God.

So I make my time in the morning – that is my quiet time of prayer, study and listening to Him.

What is the way you hear God?
