We seek to recognize the workings of God in other people’s lives. When we focus on the progress others are making in their walk with the Lord, instead of their struggles, we encourage them on their journey.
We are not to compare their growth with ours or focus on their lack more than their progress. Because our trust is in the Lord, we trust His ability, not the people’s. Instead of their weaknesses, we look for the works of the Lord.
We also look for the work of God in those who are not born again. Satan blinds minds to stop people from believing. The only answer is Jesus. Understanding his strategy with unbelievers shows us how to pray for the lost. We pray for God to shine His light, bind the blinding of the enemy, and open their eyes. The Holy Spirit removes the veil and translates them from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light.
Our perspective shifts from what the enemy is doing, to what the Lord is doing when we gaze at the glory of the Lord in others. His presence, His touch, grace, and mercy are a blessing to behold. We rejoice in hope, from glory to glory!
2 Corinthians 4:6 “For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”
