However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him— (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT)
My wife is the best at preparing for our guests. She thinks of the little things, like a basket in the room with a fun magizine and the perfect amount of sweets you don’t need and healthy snacks you do. The result is you feel loved.
- No Eye Has Seen: Seeing past our doubt takes a faith in the bigger picture. Being willing to wait and see what God does in every situation. Asking Jesus to see people how He sees them with a filter of grace and love. Loving people not matter what you see.
- No Ear Has Heard: Hearing past our fear takes a faith in a hopeful story. Just like the nights you sat through a friend telling a scary story we need to sit and listen for what Christ says about our lives. No matter the fear it might drum up we choose to press our ear to the door of doubt to hear Jesus on the other side. The truth about who we are in Christ and what we get to do for His gospel.
- No Mind Has Conceived: Thinking past our mental capacity takes thinking thoughts of grace in a faith in being renewed. Trying to figure God out is like trying to figure out how program your tv, vcr, blu ray play, cable box, Apple TV, stereo, radio, and Xbox to one remote. You know it can be done and as soon as you think you figure it out something changes and you need to start over and reprogram. In the same way the grace of Christ has given us the chance to be reprogramed. From fear to faith. From doubt to dare. From lost to loved. From fighting to forgiven. From mad to mercyful.
