In our normal state, we are so dependent on our eyes as our only real radar system in gauging our surroundings. It takes a really intense stimulus to set off our other radar systems….a skunk…a sudden noise….bitter herb….nudge or tap on the arm. When we lose our sight, we are incapacitated. Our radar is out! Over time, we learn to develop our other senses and it’s amazing the world that is available as these little used radar systems are recalibrated, sensitized, and cranked up. Believe this; God is at work in many areas of your life long before you can discern or “see” the results. Shut your reliance on your material radar, and start to develop your spiritual radar. Trust Him by waiting patiently, accepting each moment as a gift from Him. When the time is right, when you have learned to tune into the spiritual station, you will see the results of His handiwork…of his Mercy and Grace. Work on your spiritual radar….learn the spiritual truths of the Bible, God’s character, His promises, His perspective of you and life. Develop a focus on the eternal. Trusting…believing these to be true…that is how you tune your spiritual radar to the reality of life.
Miracles are not always visible to the eye…but those who live by faith see them clearly and regularly. Living by faith rather than by sight enables you to see and revel in His Glory. The life you yearn for and He has for you is within reach. Tune in and grab it!
Dear God and Creator of all things, I want to see Your Glory in myself and in others. I pray that You allow me just a glimpse of Your Glory. Please give me spiritual radar and discerning eyes so I can recognize miracles when I see them. I pray that you reveal more and more of Your Glory-moments to me.
Father God I live in anticipation of living with You in heaven where Your Glory will be a never-ending experience. I look forward to Your radiant perfection. Sadly, I know that this world I live in is deeply fallen. I pray for an increase in my faith so that I can accept and navigate in this world’s brokenness yet remain open to seeing Your beautiful miracles. I pray this in faith and by the authority granted me through Jesus Christ – AMEN
Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?
For we walk by faith, not by sight
2 Corinthians 5:7
For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God.
