Verse of the 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. —2 Corinthians 4:18

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

What do you see most clearly today? Is it what is seen or what is unseen? No matter our belief system, we ultimately have to trust what we can’t see. Even the most atheistic scientist trusts gravity, breathes air, and depends upon principles s/he cannot see until they produce results in the tangible world of human perception. But as Christians, we don’t believe the seen world is as real as the unseen world. The seen world is subject to disease, disaster, decay, disorder, and death. I don’t know about you, but if it isn’t any more permanent than that, it’s not very real. I want something to hang on to. That requires I look past the seen to find my Father who is unseen. He is the one who guarantees the unseen!


My Prayer…

Eternal Father and God of all peoples, help me see more clearly the spiritual, eternal, and real world of the unseen. I am not seeking novelty, nor am I on some quest for the bizarre. I only want to know you, your truth, and your character so I may more appropriately display them to others and help them come find you in the world of the unseen. Please grant me greater success at reaching others, to your glory. In the name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

  1. 2 Corinthians 4:18
    So, we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    This world is fixated on things that are seen, such as possessions, power, physical attractiveness, career, money…ect. The child of God however is to be fixated on Christ and living our lives according to His will and purpose for us. We cannot see Christ physically for He is in heaven and therefore unseen to us while we are on this earth.
    The “seen” things are to be unimportant to us, while the
    “unseen” things, those of the spiritual realm, are to be most valuable to us! The goal of our existence is to bring glory to God. It is to show His love to those we meet, to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to the yet unsaved, and to live our lives in obedience to His Word. These are the things that should occupy our hearts, minds, and lives as God’s children.

    So where is your treasure, where is mine? It should be centered around our precious Lord and Savior, not this world.
    Matthew 6:20
    “But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.

    Everything on this earth will be destroyed one day. All the possessions we work so hard for will be gone, they will not go with us into eternity. So, our time should be spent on the eternal!
    Isaiah 40:8
    The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of our God stands forever.

    Father God, I love You so and I thank You for opening my eyes to Your truth. I pray that You keep my eyes fixed on You in this life, for Your glory Abba, Amen!
