EYES THAT SEE

February 13:2019

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.”
1 Corinthians 2:9-10 (NKJV)

`

It is so amazing how God is very strategic in His thoughts and plans for His children such that they are concealed from the devil and every human comprehension. This was clearly the case with Jesus as it is written: “…which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Corinthians 2:7). If the devil and his human agents knew that it would be for the redemption of man, they would not have crucified Jesus.

Of a truth, no human eyes, ears and heart can comprehend or fathom the thoughts and wisdom of God. It has never been seen, heard or conceived; it is unprecedented. BUT, God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. Why would God do such a thing? He has hidden it from them but hidden them for us. He has revealed them to us because He wants us to see what belongs to us: “…that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1 Corinthians 2:12). We have received the eyes that see, yet not the eyes of this world but the eyes of the Spirit. Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 2:10).

As a principle, God will want people who are in covenant with him to know what he intends to bring to pass and what belongs to them. This is a way of connecting what they have seen by faith with their hope (expectation). And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are—northward, southward, eastward, and westward; for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever (Genesis 13:14-15).

All that Abram saw was his inheritance. Meanwhile, Lot earlier in the same chapter had lifted his eyes but saw differently and made a choice for the plain of Jordan that appeared “well-watered everywhere” according to human wisdom, but the end was destruction because he saw in the natural. Many times, in the scriptures, we are commanded to look because it is what we see that we become.

Brethren, today God is saying: lift your eyes and see the unprecedented. See with the eyes of the Spirit.
