It was by faith that Moses left the land of Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger. He kept right on going because he kept his eyes on the one who is invisible.Hebrews 11:27
Eyes on the Prize
By faith Moses left all that he knew and was comfortable and ventured into the unknown. He was not afraid of pharaoh because he had a great fear of the Lord instead. I love this verse because it tells us that Moses kept his eye on the things that were invisible, not visible. He kept his eyes on the Lord and followed Him and His leading, knowing that God could deliver His people. He had his eyes set on the things of God that are invisible rather than the visible pleasures of man.
In this world today, it can be easy to focus on the visible rather than invisible. People tend to only place their beliefs in things they can see rather than the unseen. They put their faith in man and his creations rather than God and the unseen. Be like Moses and keep your eyes on the Lord and all He can do instead of the things that are seen.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me focus on you and the unseen rather than what is seen. May I always keep my eyes on you. Amen.
