Look At Things That Are Unseen

(II Corinthians 4:18; Titus 2:13)

For our light, momentary affliction is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory, since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal, but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting (II Cor. 4:17-18).

Visible and invisible things are ever being introduced to us by means of circumstances (visible) and faith that sprouts from the reading the Word of God. Those whose hope depends solely on things seen are the most miserable of men. They are as the illustration YAHSHUA gave concerning the man who built his house on sand. Its foundation lasts only as long as there is no change in the environment or weather. But soon as they change, the foundation disappears with them. The foundation of things is the most important part of any plan to be successfully substantiated. YAHSHUA said that life did not consist in and is not derived from possessions; life is more than things, as food; and the body more than clothes (Luke 12: 15,23). These are temporal and seen things available to us as part of life, but they are not to control and dictate our state of mind.
