Things that are seen don’t last forever, but things that are not seen are eternal. This is why we keep our minds on the things that cannot be seen. 2 Corinthians 4:18

In recovery, we get to see amazing things happen. People who were beyond hope start coming back to life. We see God working in amazing ways. But there are so many things we don’t see. These are the deeper hurts that take time to recover from. In recovery, we start to have an understanding that there is much more unseen than seen.

We need to deal with what’s not seen. The unseen stuff just below the surface. It’s the unseen things that stay just below the surface that fuel our self-destructive behavior. Recovery is a process of developing a new sight. We are now able to see what’s below the surface without trying to avoid it. We now see with new sight and this new sight gives us a whole new level of insight.

Jesus is Lord of the seen and the unseen. Like a skilled surgeon, He is able to go deep into our wounds. Christ sees what is unseen by us. He gives us new sight to see what lies beneath the surface and at one time was unseen.

Written by James Miller

Jesus, show me what is unseen. Clear out all the things in me to get in the way of my relationship with You. Shine your light on all that is hidden. Make my life open so that it can be used to glorify You. Amen.
