Whenever I think about Apostle Paul, I often wonder how he didn’t complain or despair when he remained under guard in Rome and in bonds elsewhere. I think I now know the main reason. It was because of what he saw (was seeing). God gave tremendous grace to Paul that enabled him to experience supernatural visions and revelations of the Lord. The ecstatic experience exposed him to many wondrous and inexpressible secrets. Perhaps, it was the same experience that made him to write “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” Not only is it vital to train our eyes to see the eternal dimension, it is also necessary to see ourselves the way God sees us. Someone wrote “If you could see yourself, really see yourself, for who you are in Christ, that sight would halt a hundred temptations and heal a hundred sorrows” He continued “Oh, that they might see themselves, through His eyes. What boldness is theirs, what wonder, what praise, what astonishment…what unutterable splendor, what unconquerable joy.” You can see the advantage of training your eyes to see the right person or place. So, instead of focusing on the wrong person or even your past mistakes or present achievements, we should be determined not take our eyes off our goal – Christ.
