If you’ve worked on a drama production you know that there is as much going on “behind the SCENE” to make it happen as there is on the stage. Unfortunately, the audience only recognizes what’s happening on stage. That’s the way it is in REAL LIFE too. When you SEE what’s happening in your life you might think that’s all that’s going on…but there is something going on behind the SEEN. That’s why the Bible tells us to “walk by faith and not by SIGHT.”
Do you know how many times in a week unseen forces (angels) have kept you from harm when imminent danger was at hand? Do you know the times the enemy of your soul wanted to destroy you but Father God said “You can’t touch them!” Has there been a time when you were really down or depressed and an unexplained feeling of peace came from “out of nowhere” and comforted you? The “unseen” realm has been at work!
When we read the book of Job we get an opportunity to SEE what’s going on behind the SEEN between God and the Devil. If Job had known what was going on “behind the SEEN” when he was going through his tribulation, do you think it would have made a difference to him? No matter what is going on in your life right now, if you knew that God was behind the SEEN “working everything out for good” would it make a difference to you?
2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
