Looking and Seeing Aren’t the Same

A famous poet once said, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”
The Lord had me take a small hike to the top of a mountain today to pray. When I got to the top, I was looking at endless tracts of houses, some recently built and some built years ago.
As I sat there looking at them, He said, “If you love Me, you will not see houses, but homes filled with broken people who need Me. Will you express your love for Me in mere words; or, as I wrote, with deeds and truth?”
We can say we love Jesus, but do our choices reflect that love? We can be so focused on our lives and challenges that we forget that our ultimate victory is already assured. We are children of the living God, who are living in His presence both now and forever.
Can I say that about those living in the homes around that mountain? Show your love for Jesus right now. Obey His command to pray for Him to send workers into those homes, into those lives, so He can heal the broken and give rest to the harassed.
Love Jesus both in words and truth based actions.
