See and Hear

You can see the world around you with all it’s colors, faces, places, things and still miss the miracles God is doing in it.

You can hear the world around you with all it’s noise, music, conversations, sounds and still miss what God is saying to you. 

It is easy to see the mess, the chaos, the problems, the pollution.

It is easy to hear the negative words, the off key singing, the construction zone noise. 

How you see the world around you makes all the difference in how you experience it. 

It is natural to see all that is wrong in the world and hear what is shouted the loudest.

It is supernatural to see all that God is doing and hear all that God is saying in it, above it and around it. 

Jesus said, “blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.” (‭Matthew‬ ‭13‬:‭16‬ NIV)

You are blessed when you can see what God is doing all around you and hear what He is speaking to you in the midst of the chaos of our crazy world.

Take some time today to shut out the world and listen to the heartbeat of God. He is a giving Father, sustaining and redeeming life all around you, including yours.

Ask God to help your eyes see the reality of His work around you and open your ears to hear what He is saying to you today.  

Don’t live blind, live blessed.
