“What do we need to see in the unseen world?”
LISTEN TO THIS BLOG HERE!
This question was posed in my morning Men’s Group. What is your answer?
There are so many things we should know which we don’t! There is missing wisdom, solutions for problems, cures for diseases, and directions for success. We may not sure of what we are wanting, but there is an achey longing for things which seem to be missing. They are hidden from us, undiscovered as of yet.
John the revelator saw visions which stretched his knowledge of the glory of God, his heart and plans. The things he saw met needs!
Although we may have profoundly staggering revelations of our Father’s goodness we realize our knowledge is scant and fragmentary. We still long to know more of the throbbing, phosphorescing glory of God. We also need solutions, presently unseen, for fixing the garage door and broken relationship.
A man in our Men’s Group shared a story of listeners who call themselves the Sky Walkers. These saints are given challenges for listening. They pray for revelation and solutions. A large building had a water leak which could not be found. The owners did not want to destroy the building searching for it. The group was asked to pray for the location of the leak. Using several thoughts and images from the group a single spot in the building was highlighted. They broke through the wall in that spot and found the leak. Unseen things are findable when we consult with God.
How willing is God to share revelation with His kids, and what are we missing because we fail to seek Him?
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. 2 Cor 4:18
How are invisible things to be seen?
We are unaware of Most of reality. Our limitations for seeing are restricted to the tiny parameters between infrared and ultraviolet. We see a narrow band of wavelengths from 380 to 720 nanometers. There are an infinite number of wavelengths on either side of those boundaries. What are we missing that bees and angels see?
Our human hearing takes in a thin slice of sound vibrations. We hear between 20Hz and 20000Hz. There are infinite things to be heard – below as infra-sounds and above as ultrasounds. What are we failing to hear that our dog and the cherubim hear clearly?
Our senses are wonderful gifts but we should be humble enough to say, “We see in part and prophesy in part.” God’s bandwidths are wider than ours, like the span between earth and the highest heaven! This knowledge inspires us to search for more.
The Lord gave us human equipment for sensing. There are things to be sensed and known beyond our sensation faculties. Our Father wills to reveal them! Ephesians 3:20-21 tells us God is willing to take us above and beyond!
Now to him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works in us—to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
God is willing, even eager, to share with His tiny children things yet unknown to sight, sound or imagination!
No eye has seen,
no ear has heard,
no heart has imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love Him.
But God has revealed it to us by the Spirit. 2 Cor 9:10- 12
It is possible to see unseen things. Paul said this is what saints do!
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. 2 Cor 4:18
How crazy-amazing that God wills us to peer into the unseen and discover things hidden there we need!
It is God’s will that we seek and find His face. Yes, we are meant to see and fellowship with the unseen God! He also wills for us to find in the unseen word everything we need for life and godliness.
His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness. 2 Peter 1:3
Why would the Apostle Paul urge us to earnestly seek spiritual gifts, especially prophecy, if there was not much more we need to see and hear? See 1 Cor 14:1.
Who knows the extent of wonders our Heavenly Father would reveal to those who seek Him; things we need to know! James said, “We have not because we ask not.” What would you like to seek and receive from our generous God today?
Seriously, what is on your list? What do you need to see in the unseen world? We’ll join in prayer for you as you venture into the invisible for what you need!
SHARE THE WEIGHT OF THIS LONGING WITH ME
I’m so grateful for all the things you have shown me, yet I long for more! Open my eyes to see the things I have never seen before. My eyes ache to see You, Your heart, Your purposes and plans. Show me what You are pleased to reveal. Show me what I need to see.
Dear Lord, my ears long to hear Your voice, they pull like a vaccum to hear what you are saying. This is the day of Your revelation, the day of Your disclosure. I long to hear Your sweet voice and vital words. They are my daily bread!
Lord, I know I cannot bear the full measure of Your voice and the weight of Your words but give me all I can possibly bear!
Unseal Your books for reading. Upgrade my vision and discernment. Turn up the lights.
I’m longings to see You and hear You in ways I have never before. Share with me all the wisdom and understanding I can bear and apply for good.
Help me train my spiritual senses. Show me how to cultivate them.
Share your rebukes and corrections. They show me you care for my safety and success.
Share the assurances that I am on the right path. Lead me in the ways of righteousness for I want Your name glorified.
Share your truths with me. I will take them like seeds and plant them for a harvest of righteousness.
Dear Lord, you see and understand all. You share all good things with me. I give you my reverential devotion, for Jesus Your Son lights my path!
Friend, add the particulars of the unseen things which you need from our Father. Tell us what new windows open and the revelation the Lord shares with you.

This was awesome! The prayer was perfect! What encouragement you are and insight you have. Thank you!
I so want to hear His voice, both for direction and to know I am on the right track. Sometimes us warriors get so focused on praying for others and doing battle, we forget to nourish ourselves and linger in that quiet place longer. I want quiet time with Him where communication goes both ways and I hear Him. My mind is so full of “stuff” it’s hard to stay focused. Please pray for me. God is truly able to do exceedingly abundantly above anything I could think or ask!
Thanks for the note, Lolanda!
Wow, I’m certain multitudes of saints have the same longing – to have quite times with God where the communication goes both ways. May the Lord hear and answer those who have this longing! Steve
