2 Corinthians 4:18
18 “…while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal...”
Today’s Inspiration: Do not look at the things which are seen but at the things which are unseen for the things which are seen will pass away but the things which are unseen are eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18. We tend to look at things physically and decide what to do by what we see. That is not God’s ways. His ways are to interrupt our life so that we align to His agenda.
The woman in the well in John 4 did not visualise that her life will be changed by the appearance of Jesus who always like to turn our shame to honor. Moses’ carefree life at Midian was interrupted by the appearance of the burning bush. Most of the things we see are symbolic of what God was going to do next in our life. Therefore, whatever we see, we should not lose heart. V16. Do you need God to change your story? David’s life was changed by the Israelites reaction towards Goliath.
We don’t love for ourselves. Our life is governed by God. We lived for Him who died for us and rose again. 2 Corinthians 5:16. Hence though we walk in the flesh we do not war according to the flesh which had no power and an enmity to God. The warfare we fight on Earth that can pounce on us anytime are not carnal but mighty in pulling down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:3. We cannot war against the flesh with carnal weapons but mighty weapons that are capable of pulling down strongholds. Our prayer life needs to be strong and every pride of ourselves need to be cast down and be held captive in the obedience of Christ. V5. Be ready for God to interrupt your life for a greater destiny planned for you. God be praised.
Prayer: Lord help our unbelief and let no doubt nor unbelief nor compromise be the stumbling blocks to our faith to hinder us and heading us for shipwreck in our faith but let us anchor our life based on Your promises. Let me not boast beyond measure but within the limits of the sphere which God appoints us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
