One Can Only Imagine

 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Matthew 24:35 NIV

 †

Often forgotten is the eternal fact that God always was and always will be. By His word, He creates and by His word, He destroys. He speaks of a “new heaven and a new earth”…He speaks of “eternity”, without end.

One can only imagine.

~ John 3:16 ~

Blindness

~

These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me.

 (Matthew 15:8 NIV)

 The greatest blindness is that of the heart.

Opposites

The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.

—1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV)

 

The ways of this world…

this human nature…

are opposite of the Lord’s ways.

 

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:8-9 (NIV)

Your Eyes of Faith

~~~

…So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on the water toward Jesus. But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink.

(Matthew 14:29-30 NLT)

 ~~~

 Jesus invited Peter to get out of the boat and walk on the water. Peter didn’t hesitate to accept. He stepped out of the boat and onto the water…he was walking on water…he was actually walking on the water toward Jesus.

He was, until…he saw the wind and the waves and became afraid. He was no longer focused on Jesus. He looked at his circumstance and allowed fear and doubt to rob him of the faith to walk on water. Peter made the big, huge mistake of taking his focus, his thoughts and his “eyes of faith” off Jesus.

Peter literally walked on water…by faith…because Jesus said he could. Although we may not be called upon to “walk on water”, we are called upon to “walk by faith”.

Keep your “eyes of faith” on Jesus.
