Seeing Clearly

It's great to be back in the prayer room this morning. We've been on the road 18 days since Jan 3. That's not a ton by some peoples' standards, but it's enough to drive me batty (and make me miss my bed!).

I'm mulling over Ephesians 6. I've been in Ephesians for a good while - things just keep jumping out at me. This morning I'm staring at Paul's unique ability to present a lucid argument for the divorcing of circumstance from reality.

What a thought...that all there is is not all that there is. There are two worlds, one seen, one unseen, and if we're not vigilant, we waste our time and energy fighting lesser, seen enemies, as if we could really see what's killing us anyway.

I'm asking God for transcendence over our own meager vision. It seems even those with perfect vision can be blind to the battle, crippled by their own abilities. What if I approached this day fully in god's power, rather than my own? I'd bet I could change both worlds.

II Cor 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen, for what is seen is temporal, but what is unseen is eternal.
