Our vision is more often limited by what we see with our eyes. We judge by what we can physically see – but – we only see the eternal.
I recognise that I need to be careful not to judge purely by what I ‘see’ – something that I can do too easily – but rather to ask God to show me more.
I need to seek to get to know and understand others.
I was thinking of ‘gatherings’ of people all over the world – seeking to worship God – – how they differ.
I’ve been fortunate to be exposed to many forms of worship – many ways in which people reach out to connect with God. I’ve become more tolerant – more willing to recognise that ‘different ‘ does not mean ‘wrong’.
I’ve sort to ‘see’ with my heart and not just my eyes.
God responds to the sincerity of our hearts. He sees the longing – the desire – to connect with Him.
He is always ready to meet us halfway.
He responds to our hearts.
We can go through the ‘motions’ of worship and not connect with the heart – our hearts may be far away.
God always sees our hearts and will always respond to us.
Not only do I want to seek God with my heart – but I need to recognise that I can’t see (as God can ) the hearts of others’
I need His help to see beyond the ‘outward’ that I see with my natural eyes – to help me not to judge others too quickly – but to ‘see’ with my heart as He does.
I need to allow Him to show me more and more the importance of the heart – both mine and the hearts of others.
