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’re incapacitated. Our radar is out! Over time, though, we learn to develop our other senses…revealing an amazing world as these other previously little used radar systems get 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 down your reliance on your material radar honed by the false influences of this world, and start to develop your spiritual radar. God built it in to you, but we have allowed it to atrophy, wither away, as we rarely turned it on or paid any attention to it. Trust Him by waiting patiently, accepting each moment as a gift from Him to exercise and develop the most important part of your awareness system, your spiritual radar.
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.
Today, begin living by faith rather than by sight. It will enable you to see and revel in His Glory. Miracles are not always visible to the eye…but those who live by faith see them clearly and regularly. The life you yearn for and He has for you is WITHIN REACH. Tune in and grab it!
Dear God, 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. I look forward to Your radiant perfection. Sadly though, 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 the name of the One with perfect spiritual radar, Jesus Christ – and all God’s children say, 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.
