Seeing can be believing.  To the contrary, seeing can persuade disbelieving.  The difference between the two is whether we depend upon what the eyes of our head view or what the eyes of our hearts perceive.  Think about it.  We are to walk by faith...and...not by sight.  Something's up with this, wouldn't you think?

God is serious when He calls us to walk from a new perspective.  Even in days of old where God's children could see the swollen banks of the Jordan, they moved with eyes of faith believing that God would do something fantastic to clear the way.  He could have built a bridge in sixty seconds.  Maybe He could have brought in a strange thing called human slingshots which would thrust the people flying across the raging river.  Or, maybe God could just temporarily part the waters?  Go figure.

I tell you a strange thing.  Sight has a way of blurring reality.  God said such; not me.  Eyes from sockets tend to read fear during moments of conflict.  When this happens, hesitation follows and, then, execution is aborted.  The eyes of the heart, instead, are major factors for every individual for it is from this faith/seeing viewpoint that one gains confident momentum.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing  greatness of power toward us who believe (Ephesians. 1:18-20).  The eyes of the heart are to see a new light in order for three blessings to occur.  Life doesn't go awry because of bad breaks.  Rather, it moves off-center if and when we use the wrong set of eyes in moments of disruption.

Surely so many matters in our walk need improvement.  The place to start is not by first tracking down a solution.  Rather, the first move would be to put in our spiritual contacts that we might see reality from the perspective of God's of hope, riches, and power.  These three...change our entire day!
