But We See Jesus!

“In putting everything under him, God left nothing
that is not subject to Him. Yet at present
we do not see everything subject to Him.
But we see Jesus.” (Heb. 2:8b-9a NIV)

Don’t you love it when a familiar scripture leaps off the page at you as if you’ve never seen it before? As I read the above scripture the other day, this part bounced up and crashed right into my heart, “Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him. But we see Jesus.” (Heb. 2:8b-9a NKJV)

Though some circumstances may not be subject to our control, they are always subject to the Lord’s control, even when, at times, they do not appear that way to us.

Without the same point of view as God, the same Spirit-realm vision, we fail to see God’s hand in action or His Word at work. We wonder why He is taking so long to remedy our circumstances or why He doesn’t answer our prayers.

But, no matter...

No matter what others say about us, we see Jesus.
No matter how discouraged we become, we see Jesus.
No matter what trials and afflictions pursue us, we see Jesus.
No matter how dark the night’s grief enshrouds us, we see Jesus.

As David said, “I lift my eyes to you, O God, enthroned in heaven.” (Ps. 123:1 NLT)

Whatever comes our way...we see Jesus!

    Hi Lynn, I just wanted to thank you for guest posting on Ol Tom, Your posts are so much welcome. Full of what we call at church "Gold Nuggets" because, if you keep them in a safe place (the heart) they will make you rich. Your talent for writing and interpreting the Word is wonderful. Thank You again, Tom

  10. Nice post Lynn! So glad God sees the beginning from the end. He sees the completed work - we see a sliver of the whole.

    We see Jesus, and God sees the Jesus in us. It doesn't get any better than that... :)

  11. It still amazes and surprises me how so many pieces blend together to send His messages. Both the story of David and keeping my eyes focused on Him have been a recurring theme for me this week. Blessings to you, Lynn for once again being His instrument.
