Hope for what you do not see; eagerly wait for it with perseverance. Among the five senses, sight is often the one that people value the most. I created the world gloriously beautiful, and I want you to appreciate beauty when you see it. However, even more beneficial than sight is hope, which is itself a kind of vision. It enables you to see-through the eyes of your heart-things that are not yet. The most stunning example of this is the hope of heaven. Your ultimate destiny is to share in My Glory! This is My promise to you, secured through My finished work on the cross and My resurrection.
Practice hoping for things you do not see-both for this life and the next. Ask Me to guide you into hopes and dreams that are in line with My will. Train the eyes of your heart to see these blessings, while praying for My will to be done fully and only. Discipline yourself to wait eagerly-with your focus on Me and the longed-for outcome. Remain hopeful and expectant as you wait with perseverance.
If we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. -Romans 8:25 nkjv
The glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one. -John 17:22 nkjv
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. -Hebrews 11:1 amp
There is an open road ahead of you-all the way to heaven. I am your traveling Companion, and I know every twist and turn of your path. You see problems and limitations impeding your progress no matter which direction you look. But your vision is ever so limited. All I ask of you is to take the next small step-refusing to give up, refusing to stop trusting Me.
Your life is truly a faith-walk, and I am absolutely faithful! Though your understanding will fail you, I never will. The challenge before you is to stop focusing on your problems and limitations-and to believe that the way ahead really is an open road, in spite of how it looks.
I am the Way to the Father in heaven. Remember how much I had to suffer in order to open up the path of Life for you. No one else will ever have to endure what I went through. When you are struggling, simply take the next step and thank Me for clearing the way before you-all the way to heaven.
No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. -1 Corinthians 10:13
We walk by faith, not by sight. -2 Corinthians 5:7 nkjv
Jesus said to [Thomas], I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. -John 14:6 nkjv
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. -Psalm 16:11
