Heart Sights

JOB 42:5–6--“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore, I abhor myself and repent in dust and ashes.”

Invite a certain friend I know to a symphony, and he will ask, “Who is Phil Harmonic?” Before working on a church staff, my friend was a football coach. He might not know anything about quarter notes in music, but he can tell you every nuance of every play in any quarter of any football game he watches. His eye is trained for the game.

Because of his tribulations, Job had to retrain his heart–eyes. He had focused so long on his problems that he
had lost the capacity to see God clearly. His friends attempted to refocus his heart–vision to conform to their own blurry views.

Then Job saw God at a new level. Rather than fuzziness, Job’s searing heartbreak burned away the film over his heart–eyes. The sight in his heart overwhelmed the mere hearing of ideas, notions, and concepts.

Objective truths and principles may reassure and guide us, but a heart trained to see God will transform us!
