“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

There is a popular saying that
seeing is believing. This means that people can only believe what they see. But is this also applicable to us believers? To walk with God, we must believe that He is, even without seeing Him. No one has seen God in His fullness, but we all believe that He is God and He is alive.

Faith as defined in Hebrew 11:1 is the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen. Faith is the currency that we spend in this kingdom. We may not see Him or even feel Him, but we know that He exists.

Things that are seen ( achievements of life, material things) are temporary. They cannot stand the test of time. We are only on earth for a period. No matter how long you live on earth, there’s still an eternity awaiting you after death.

As believers, we must not be ignorant of this fact. Our faith must be strong in the Lord. We must put our faith on this eternal and believe that Jesus has truly gone to prepare a place for us. We might not be able to see this, but it’s more real and eternal.

Further Study: Matthew 6:33

Charge: As children of God, our disposition towards eternity must be able to convince others of the same.

Stay joyful.
