No-one can see the Kingdom of God unless they are born again,
(Jesus to Nicodemus, John 3)

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a pair of glasses which would enable you to see more clearly who you truly are, to understand what your purpose is, what you should be doing; to see what the point is, what God’s plan for us all is?!

The onus is on us as Christians to believe, and thereby to see things more clearly. We must choose to see things ‘from above’ – in the light of God’s eternal perspective.

Ask yourself where you have begun to doubt. […] Let’s ask God to help us; let’s recognise that He is our eternal father. […]  Trust in God, turn away from our questioning, from our dark thoughts, and just believe in His goodness. Interestingly, in the world around us is the phrase “Seeing is believing”, but from a Christian perspective, the opposite is true: Believing is seeing. [PT]
