In A Hard Time? Focus on the Unseen

When we go through hard times God's speaks of the eternal weight of glory for which they are preparing us.  We need to focus on the unseen, not the seen. 2 Cor 4:16-18

But what dominates our life is in the realm of the seen. Our senses—what we see, hear, smell, touch, and taste—are the driving influences in our life. What can help us focus on the unseen? Meditating on God’s living Word does just that.

Martin Luther provides a wonderful insight in his commentary on Psalm 119 that links the seen with the unseen. The words used: lips, mouth, even the words for meditate are oral. Psalm 119:15; 148

He writes that when we meditate on God’s Word we should read it aloud. Why? Because what we see with our eyes and speak with our mouths is heard by our ears and enters our hearts.
