"Supernatural Vision"

2 Corinthians 2:7 "Do you look at things according to the outward appearance?"

When our son was about 2 years old, my husband and I were sitting on the couch watching him play... when Rick turns to me and said, "Do you think we should tell Joshua he's adopted?" I couldn't help but start laughing and said, "Well, I think he's gonna figure it out!" And I looked at Rick and realized, he wasn't kidding. You see...Rick and I are white and our Joshua is Black and Cuban (to me, he looks like an islander).

Our Joshua is about to turn 23 years old and I still love to tell that story...because it's such a picture of Rick had "supernatural vision"....he had eyes like Jesus...who sees no color... "man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart". 1 Samuel 6:7b

"man looketh on the outward appearance"

"the LORD looketh on the heart"

I can't help but consider how Jesus looked on offensive I must have looked....dead in my just like the rest of the world, full of sin, rebelling against God and obeying Satan....and yet, that didn't stop my LORD....He looked at me, He reached out to me...actually pursued me...showed me He loved me......offering reconciliation, forgiveness of sins, eternal life.... What grace...What humbling....

So thankful for that "Supernatural Vision"!

Blessings on your day!
