behind the scenes

In our visually oriented age it’s so easy to lead
a superficial life.
The saying “many cakes are beautiful on the outside”
gives the right kind of a signal.
Don’t let the visible hide the invisible.
The world is not at all as it looks like, people are not.
Behind every face there is a person.
Behind every facade there is another picture.
Elisha’s servant was discouraged by the threat of the
enemies. He was serving a man of God, but he wasn’t
really spiritually oriented. II Kings 6:15-18.
The prophet asked God to open the servant's eyes. He was
shocked to see another reality. “The mountain was full
of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”
He was serving , but he didn’t know whom.
We are no better. It’s so easy to be distracted by the
pictures of this world and forget about the city that
is not made with hands. Hebrews 13:14
We don’t need more imagination to recognize the
presence of God. We need faith.
By faith we see God and his work.
Spiritual growth doesn’t mean that you become better in
doing something, better in prayer, better in evangelism,
better in your church behavior .
It means that you become more aware of the presence
of God.
God is present. That makes a huge difference in our
daily life.
