Dear reader, have you seen the Lord Jesus with your inner eyes and beheld His true glory? Have you got an experience with Him or are you only part of the experience of someone else? Daniel was in the den, but he saw the Lord instead of the hungry lions and spent his hours in prayer. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego saw the Lord and not the flames and had a fellowship meeting inside the furnace. Noah saw only the Lord and His ark instead of the bewildering flood and kept going until the Lord asked him go out into the dry ground. Nehemiah looked at the Lord who enabled him to refurbish the walls of Jerusalem instead of getting fearful and discouraged by looking at Sanballat, Tobias and Geshem. In the dungeon, Joseph saw opportunities to touch the lives of people for God rather than punishment for crimes he never committed. Even in the midst of great opposition and adversity, our Lord appears to us in His glory for us to see and get encouraged. He comes to us in all our circumstances to show us that He is above all of the difficulties we go through. He reassures us that He will give us victory in all situations if we look unto Him alone. Apostle John had this assurance which he felt was adequately sufficient to meet all the challenges he was faced with. His experience with the Lord kept him going through persecution, isolation, rejection and loneliness. If you are going through such experiences today, the Lord will give you a visitation to reassure you that He is with you and that His presence, power and provisions are adequate to meet all challenges you are faced with. But you must shift your focus from your adverse circumstance and look unto Him for help. Today you have the privilege to touch Him and see His glory through which you will continue to enjoy fellowship with Him.Job 42:5 – I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes see You. Thought for Today
The surrendered set of eyes of a child of God will have the privilege to continue to see the glory of the Lord and experience His peace in all unfavorable circumstances.
