Training To See God - Proverbs 3

David was confident that the Lord was always at his right hand (Ps. 16:8). His psalms reveal that in surveying his life, he saw God's fingerprints all over it. Like David, we must train our spiritual eyes to notice the evidence of our heavenly Father's presence.



Seeing with spiritual eyes isn't a now-and-then kind of thing - it's a lifestyle. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus said, "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God" (Matthew. 5:8). Those who walk before the Lord with a clear conscience will take captive unholy thoughts, habits, attitudes, and words. They cast out sin and live in righteousness. As a result, such believers have a spiritual clarity that sharpens their awareness of God's presence and involvement in their lives.


I developed a habit years ago that has helped me to focus. When I lie down and talk to the Lord before going to sleep, I try to recall the events of my day. What I'm really doing is looking for evidence of God at work. How did He guide this decision? Answer this question? Protect me in this situation? Help me in this relationship? Appreciating the Lord's handiwork a second time (even when the initial experience was difficult) etches the reality of His care deeper on my heart.


The evidence of God's great power is all over your life, if only you will see it. Viewing the world with wide-open spiritual eyes changes one's perspective. Instead of saying, "I can't," say, "I can because the Lord always enables me." Live confident in our loving, omnipotent God, who dwells within you.

Current Sermon Series
      Can you imagine what could happen if we gave control of our life to God? It's scary, but the benefits are world-altering. The life of Elisha challenges us to answer God's calling and take the risks that are necessary to do His will. It's time we start taking risks and making decisions the world doesn't understand. Come see what life can look like when we let go, when we decide to have 'Ridiculous Faith'.


Last Week:
      We need a Ridiculous Faith in order to please God. We saw that God can do miracles, but He wants us to show our faith by our works. He wants us to dig the ditch. He wants us to show Him our faith, and then He'll show us His faithfulness.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our website, just under the calendar, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      We will take a break from Elisha as we will have church outside at the Caldwell's on July 4th. Come on out and fellowship around the table and the Word.
