To have “eyes that see and ears that hear” is to consciously acknowledge the Kingdom and Spirit of God. To view life and all that it contains through the lens of faith, and in harmony with the Word.
AW Tozer asks, “Why do the ransomed children of God (that’s us) know so little of the habitual, conscious communion with God which Scripture details and offers? The answer is our chronic unbelief. Faith enables our spiritual sense to function. Where faith is defective the result will be inward insensibility and numbness to spiritual things. This is the condition of vast numbers of Christians today. No proof is necessary to support that statement. We have but to converse with the first Christian we meet or enter the first church we find open to acquire all the proof we need.
A spiritual kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, embracing us, altogether within reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is waiting for our response to His presence. The eternal will come alive the moment we begin to reckon its reality.”
The writer of Hebrews puts it this way: “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11:1).
Glory to God!
