“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 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.”
II Corinthians 4:16,18
The presence of God is a reality that we can experience. He is the God who is there. Unfortunately, we can go day after day and never pay any conscious attention to His reality. Leanne Payne in her book “Listening Prayer” writes, “It is especially easy for modern people to regard the supernatural world and activities as somehow less real than the world we behold with our senses. As twentieth-century Christians, we live in a materialistic age in which our systems of learning have long based their conclusions on scientific truth alone. The presuppositions of such systems have misled many generations of students, blinding them to the truths of God and the Unseen Real.” Paul says that he did not lose heart because of the reality of fixing his eyes on what is unseen. The unseen reality of God renewed his heart, day by day. David said he was not shaken by life’s experiences because he experienced God at his side. How about you? Is God’s presence a reality in your life? Is your heart renewed day by day because of the reality of His presence in your life? It’s not too late. Start today to experience His reality. Spend time with God, talk to Him, ask Him to reveal Himself to you. When you do, you will find out that He really is the “Unseen Real.”
Father, my life is so full of everything else but You. I spend so much of my time without any awareness of You. I have kept You at a safe distance. Forgive me. Today, reveal Yourself to me, Lord renew my heart today by Your unseen reality. In Jesus’ name.
