I’ve always wanted to live by the sea! When I looked out my bedroom window this morning ….. I thought God had answered my prayer. But as reality set in ….. I realised my sea was an illusion! Before long ….. my misty sea disappeared ….. the ships’ masts became power pylons ….. and the rocks became trees. Things aren’t always what they appear to be. Sometimes we ‘see’ what we want to see. Sometimes people will fool us into seeing what suits them. That’s why we need to see with more than our physical eyes. That’s why God sent His Spirit to live with us. He enables us to see and make sense of the world around us.
‘But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.’ John 16:13
Thank you, Father, for sending your Holy Spirit to guide ….. help ….. and protect us on this journey through life. Teach us how to hear His voice and see through His eyes. In Jesus Name, Amen.
