How far do we see with our physical eyes? Yes, there are limitations. The eyes of faith, our spiritual eyes, can see things in the distance that the physical eyes cannot see. The eyes of faith will determine how we live our lives on the earth. The eyes of faith will see the spiritual reward in the distance, and it will not allow the physical things of this life to distract. The great men and women of the bible had the eyes of faith. They persevered under difficult conditions, and their eyes of faith motivated them to hold on to hope, believing that he who promise is always faithful.
Hebrews 11:13, 26
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 26 esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.
