Belief in the Most High God, positions us in a place where we are always presented with two realities:
1 – the reality of present circumstances
2 – the reality of the kingdom of God
One is passing, the other is certain.
One requires physical eyes to see, the other requires eyes of understanding to see.
One is seen, the other is unseen.
The presentation of these realities are never to confuse us but rather, they are to give us the option to exercise our will. Any opportunity which enables us to exercisee our will exposes what is truly in our heart.
Whenever we are presented with choosing between the will of God and our will, it is a no brainer that we should definitely choose Gods will. This is because the will of God is perfected in His kingdom, therefore it is our duty to pull the reality of His kingdom into our present.
Where is this going? Think HOPE.
“Hope that is seen is not hope at all”. These were the words of Paul the apostle in Romans 8:24.
The things we see belong to us because they are within our reach. And if the things we see belong to us, what then is the point in hoping for what we already have? Nevertheless we hope for the unseen because the things we do not see belongs to God. This is how we keep our faith anchored in Him – having an expectation that He will meet our needs.
The unseen is an invitation to enquire and require God’s heart concerning a matter.
God cannot be limited to experience. Every book in the bible is evidence that He is constantly moving in creative ways.
We can admire the heroes of faith in the Bible but the heart of God is open for greater demonstrations in us through ways which others in the Bible did not quite experience.
Jesus Christ demonstrated a greater power of the kingdom of God and through it all still declared that greater works shall we do. This means that there is still room for Him to work greater things. There are unseen works which are waiting to be exercised by people of faith.
God did not stop His master-plan at Jesus but rather Jesus was our invitation into a greater and better reality.
See it this way: every experience with God is an invitation into something greater. Whenever we experience Him, He downloads things – Godsized things – which only He can reveal into our spirit. These things are unsearchable mysteries which cannot be found anywhere but in His presence. And when He reveals them, that’s one of His ways of saying, “call to Me and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things which you do not know.”
“The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” [Deuteronomy 29:29]
