The Hope Hearing Room
Hope Seeing Eyeglasses
In Corner 2 of the Hope Hearing Room, Jesus gave us new Hope Hearing Aids. Here in Corner 3, He gives us new Hope Seeing Eyeglasses. These Hope Tools give us the ability to see, behold, and adore the many Faces of God that He wants to reveal to us. We put down the God of the old glasses, the old ways of seeing, and we pick up the new.
There is something in the Bridegroom's eyes we are not to miss. The new Hope Seeing Eyeglasses are about giving us eyes of Adoration. They are blue-- They are Revelation“Son”-Glasses that bring Jesus into focus throughout our journey. And they transform through gentleness-- of doves, of bathing. They remove the pain and replace it with Him. Not just personal pain, but pain over dreams, promises, visions for cities and nations--plans of our hearts which failed or didn't come to fruition like we thought they would; over competitors who moved in or maligned us, prevented our hopes from coming to pass. Jesus has new Eyeglasses for us to put on. When we do, we adore Him and lose our pain through adoration.
One time I had a dream of waves that were trying to crash over the Body of Christ and they were 70 feet high. I was only 30 feet above the ground so that I and others were drowning. The Lord said, "I have measured you in hope and you have come up wanting. The only way above is to adore, adore, adore." I realized that as I adored Him, I grew in strength and rose above the waves.
I had heard of you with the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes have seen you.
First He sees us (SOS 5:12) and then we see Him (Job 42:5)! Seeing Him heals us from what we've been through. Seeing brings us to the new place He wants us to be. God wants us to SEE Him. The only way we can do this is to focus supremely on His face, His character, what the Word is ministering to us noverbally. 70% of communication is nonverbal, so we are healed as we allow His love to minister to our hearts in this 70% nonverbal area. If we close that off and rely on the 30%, we only get 30% of His love that is available!
The hearing and seeing come together. Oh the heart of God who wants to speak to us as a friend, FACE TO FACE. In this second Upper Room of Hope, He offers these new eyeglasses. When you receive them, 3 wonderful things happen to you:
1) You receive new seeing-eyeglasses that give you the right perspective. God longs to open up your eyes so you may see Him rightly.
2) You see Him rightly through “Face-to-Face-Adoration-Prayers” with God
3) Instead of always looking to your circumstances and challenges first, You first look into the eyes of Jesus, the One who has Supreme Power and holds the entire world in His Hands.
With Your counsel You will guide me, and afterward receive me to glory.
Whom have I in heaven but You? and besides You, I desire nothing on earth.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
