A spiritual kingdom lies all about us, enclosing us, altogether within reach of our inner selves, waiting for us to recognize it. God Himself is waiting our response to His presence. The eternal world will come alive to us the moment we reckon upon its reality.
“O God, Quicken to life every power within me, that I may lay hold on eternal things. Open my eyes that I may see; give me acute spiritual perception; enable me to taste Thee and know that Thou art good. Make heaven more real to me than any earthly thing has ever been.”
—A.W. Tozer, The Pursuit of God
I think A.W. and I could have been friends. I want to read his book. Going to the library today to check it out and praying his prayer all day long not just for me, but for you too. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or just stuck in the dirt of earth, make this your prayer today too.
And Elisha prayed to the Lord, “O Lord, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the Lord opened the servant’s eyes, and he looked and saw the hills full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.
(2 Kings 6:17).
We are not alone.
