Seeing the Unseen

Seeing the Unseen
2 Corinthians 4:18 (NKJV)

18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which arenot seen are eternal.

The late Steve Jobs, the co founder of Apple, was actually fired from his position as CEO of the company before he came back to lead its comeback. In a commencement address at Stanford University in 2005, Jobs said, “I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have happened to me”

Seeing the Unseen

Many people, Christians and non Christians, testify that failure has been a back door to success. But even when failure doesn’t lead to outward success, Christians can trust that God is working in the midst of their failure. When anyone experiences failure, or any kind of affliction, he or she tends to focus on what is seen and what is happening in that moment. But for Christians experiencing failure, God is at work in the unseen, shaping our character into the image of Jesus Christ.

28 And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. 29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Romans 8:28-29 (NKJV)

Seeing the Unseen

Only Christians can be confident that God is going to use their failure for a deep purpose in their lives.

If you regret a failure in your life, thank God for the unseen work He is doing in you today.

I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!

You’re important to God, and you’re important to us at When it comes to prayer, we believe that God wants to meet your needs and reveal His promises to you. So whatever you’re concerned about and need prayer for we want to be here for you! Or even if you just want to say Hi, you can contact us at
