Seeing The Unseen

It is easy in the light of the present cares of this world to become overwhelmed and lose our hope. The antidote for this is seeing the unseen God.
         It is what we gaze upon that shapes us. If we dwell only on the temporal or transitory aspects of life, the things that we can see, feel, or touch, we will always be disappointed.  As the Scripure states, “For the things we see now will soon be gone.”  We must be able to look at our troubles with a backdrop of God’s sovereign eternal goodness.
         God is always enough.  What enabled Moses to preserve when he asked Pharaoh to let his people go and resulted in them being in a more precarious situation? (Exodus 5&6)  He saw this invisible God finishing the task.   And what about Joseph when was betrayed by his brothers (Genesis 37)?  Or when was he falsely accused by Potiphar’s wife (Genesis 39), or forgotten by the chief baker (Genesis 40). He saw this seemingly distant God as one who brought good out of bad. If we see this unseen God, it will always be enough.
