5.22.2020 – Reality

Here’s a thought…

God is more “real” than I sometimes “realize“…

Have you ever been just doing life and suddenly you “realize” again, in a fresh new way (and I mean a deeper kind of “realize”)…

“…God is right here with me. He’s here. He’s present. He’s “right here, right now“…”

The truth is, His reality is so much more “real” than anything that has ever been “real” to me.

Isn’t that incredible? All that we’ve ever seen with our eyes, all that we’ve ever smelled with our noses, all that we’ve ever tasted, all that we’ve ever heard with our ears, all that we’ve ever felt….

The “unseen” reality is so far beyond what is “real” in this world. ✨

Isn’t that wild to think about? When you really think about it?

It is said that, “It is the unseen things that give meaning to the things which are seen.”

But it’s interesting how it can be so easy to “do life” and, in a sense, forget the reality of just how real He is, and just how real His reality is…

But His reality, what is unseen, what is in His heart for us… is also our reality. ?It is His heart, that we learn to “take hold” of the truth, and the prayer of His heart, Matthew 6:10: “Your kingdom come, Your will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.”

“The things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”—2 Corinthians 4:18

For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”—Romans 1:20

By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.”—Hebrews 11:3

“Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”—John 20:29

But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper shall not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you. And He, when He comes, will convict the world concerning sin, and righteousness, and judgment; concerning sin, because they do not believe in Me; and concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you no longer behold Me; and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.”—John 16:7-11

A little while, and you will no longer behold Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”—John 16:16

Just some thoughts that came this morning…✍??

Thank You, Lord, for being so much more real than I can even fathom right now… but I ask and pray that You will allow me to realize, more and more…in the “right here and right now”… just how real You are. ☀️(I have a feeling that I don’t really even know what I am asking for in this moment…) ?Thank You for helping me to know what to pray. ?
