…he persevered (endured), because he saw Him who is invisible. Hebrews 11:27
The battle between the visible and the invisible threatens to rend me in two many days.
What is visible to me is a house that is knee-deep in dirty socks, children’s toys, and just plain dirt in the corners. The garden is overcome with weeds. The air conditioning is out, and it feels like I am back in Africa again. I turn on the news and I see the world around us fighting and killing each other, each demanding his or her rights. Terrorism looms and nuclear warfare is always a possibility. The latest health trend lists all my infractions and I tug at my snug waistband, wishing I could just eat donuts in peace.
Without daily time alone in the quiet with God, I will never see the invisible in all this clamor.
It is vital to my vision to seek the invisible every single day. Alone, still, before my God with His Word open, my sight is corrected. I see a God who holds my times in His hands. He will guide me through the household mundanity of this day. I see a Savior who takes up the Shepherd’s staff and pursues the broken, the wounded, the oppressed. I see a God who is sovereign over the wars, the threats, the fears of every man’s heart. And I see a God who made my body and yours and said, “It is good.”
I can persevere because I see Him who is invisible.
What do you see around you today? Have you taken time to see the Invisible One? This single act of self-care will revolutionize your life and enable you to persevere through every storm.
