One of the privileges I have had this year is to homeschool my son. I call it a privilege because I am learning right alongside him. This week we talked about the westward expansion of the 13 colonies of the United States, which led to the USA being a land from sea to shining sea. Reading how Lewis and Clark would send back reports to President Jackson about what they saw as they journeyed west was written for the President to hear and even though he had not seen what they saw, he heard it and believed. Out of his belief he acted according and history calls it the manifest destiny of a nation.
Learning that this week, then praying with Psalm 48 this morning, the Lord wanted to remind us again, there is a manifest destiny for every nation and for every life. Psalm 48:8 says, “As we have heard, so have we seen In the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God; God will establish her forever. Selah.” We have heard the reports as documented through the history of the various men and women in scripture of what they saw; we have even heard with our own ears the voice of God; we are reminded of Job and his words “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You” (Job 42:5). The great awakening is going to open our eyes to what we have heard. Hearing is only one part of the equation, God is manifesting destiny in the realm of us seeing what we have heard. He sees the imbalance of how much we have heard in light of how much we have yet to see and He is balancing the scales of seeing and hearing.
My friends, the great awakening is on many levels and for us that have heard so many prophetic words, heard the voice fo God, have promises we know God spoke to us, I am telling you we are seeing already, but we are going to see even more in the days ahead. All those puzzle pieces lingering in the realm of hearing are about to be matched with seeing. Once you see what you have heard the memory will be established in you on a cellular level so you never forget He is God! The great awakening is for us all and we are going see what we have only heard about.
