“By faith he (Moses) left Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured, as seeing Him who is unseen.” (Hebrews 11:27)
Oh, to live our life ‘as seeing Him who is unseen!’
To live all our days with our internal eyes seeing Him!
Moses’ heart saw God before him, and that’s where he kept his vision. Dangers on the right, toils on the left, he saw Him who is unseen ever before him.
We have an unseen God. He is the great King – the King immortal, invisible…
The eye’s of faith can see Him.
We hold this amazing power of choice. We can choose to live our life connected to the things of this Earth. We can connect our souls to the pains of man, to the struggles of life, to the confusion of the world. At any moment we can set our eyes and draw our hearts to the temporal, or we can connect our hearts to the eternal.
When we look to what is unseen, with faces fixed like flint, we begin to see a Heavenly Kingdom. When we gaze into our eternal destiny everything changes… The movement of the Holy Spirit becomes familiar and the Voice of God feeds our soul. We begin to live differently, think differently, believe differently.
With our internal vision fixed, we could join forces with such mighty men as Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego as they faced the fiery furnace with boldness, or young David as he stood before the giant in confidence.
Where was Elijah looking when he faced the prophets of Baal on the mountain top? Where was Elisha looking when he saw the heavenly army and could say to his servant “do not fear, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
Turn your eyes, my friends. And live…. “as seeing Him who is unseen.”
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 corinthians 4:18)
