Don’t Forget To Look

“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the goal of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” 1 Peter 1:8-9

We believe in things we cannot see. Like the wind, you can’t see it but you can see and feel its effects. Our faith in Christ is the same. Though you can’t see Him, you have experienced His unexplainable peace.

Faith does have eyes. It sees the truth in the midst of lies. It sees the love of God through others. It sees the hope of one day when all sadness and suffering shall cease. It sees purpose and direction. It sees change in our lives for the better. 

The problem for most of us is that we forget to look.

Spend some time in prayer asking the Lord to open your eyes to see Him working in your life: in your family, in your work, and even in the mundane. There is an old worship song that can be helpful to you to remember to look called, “Open the Eyes of My Heart.” https://youtu.be/idQ1n3cdgfo

Maybe it will get stuck in your head to help you to remember to look.

"Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart.
I want to see You
I want to see you.
To see you high and lifted up
Shining in the light of your glory
Pour out your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy"
