Thoughts on Today's Verse...

What can you see most clearly today? Is it what is seen in the physical world or what is unseen in the spiritual world? No matter your belief system, you ultimately have to trust what we can't see. Even the most atheistic scientists trust gravity, breathe air, and depend upon principles they cannot see until they produce results in the tangible world of human perception. But as Christians, we don't believe the seen world is more real than the unseen world. The seen world is subject to disease, disaster, decay, disorder, and death. I don't know about you, but if what I believe in isn't any more permanent than that, it's not a dependable place to put my trust. I want something, or better yet, someone who is strong, enduring, and sure. That requires me to look past the seen world to find my unseen Father. He guarantees the unseen!

My Prayer...

O, eternal Father and God of all peoples, please help me see the spiritual, immortal, and dependable realities only found in you. I am not seeking novelty or on some quest for the bizarre. I only want to know you, your truth, and your character. I yearn for these, so I may more appropriately display them to others and help them find you. Please enable me to be a more effective witness to you as I seek to reach others. I pray in the name of Jesus and to the praise of your glorious grace. Amen.
