”Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do?” [Genesis 18:17]
We say and rightly so—we walk by faith and not by sight—this does not mean we are oblivious to what God is doing with, in and/or through our lives. Not judging with natural eyesight forces us to look within, where the Spirit of God dwells and the windows of our soul reveal His Will and Way. Here are four windows.
Window of direction—“…I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you, who directs you in the way you should go.” [Isaiah 48:17] When choices abound, God’s presence will make it clear which way to take.
Window of revelation—“The secret things belong to the Lord our God—the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever…” [Deuteronomy 29:29] The wonderful sense of belonging to a far greater purpose than you ever dreamed possible is wide open to you.
Window of guidance—”For this God is our God forever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end.” [Psalm 48:14] No short term contract with God—no broken commitment—no change or double-mindedness. What He has said He will accomplish, and we are honored to participate.
The more readily we accept the responsibility of looking, listening and learning to follow His voice from within, the more we see what formerly seemed to be hidden. Faith is not blind—faith sees—unlike man’s philosophy of “seeing is believing,” the saints of God know that believing is seeing. Without faith, spiritual eyes are blind to the glorious insights and sounds of the Kingdom but with faith, direction, revelation and guidance are yours for the asking!
