The unseen reality

Posted on July 3, 2016 · Posted in Worldview, Worship

If your view of reality is limited to what you can see, your worship will be ill-informed. The power of God is not limited to what you can see. Faith is what expands your vision to see what is really real. There is great comfort in the unseen reality.

The unseen armies of God provide hope that you can speak of the gospel with power. You have no need to panic or despair. In order to be salt and light you must first be confident of the reality that you cannot see. It is foolish to live only for what is seen. If you worship a god you can see, you worship an idol.

The Bible opens the eyes of your heart to see reality as it is. May you know the wonder and courage of Elisha’s faith.

“Do not be afraid, for those who are with us are more than those who are with them.”
