“This is what the Holy Spirit brings to us, the vision of the Lord, power to see divine things as God sees them. Not only does He give knowledge of the truth, but He gives the realization of it. Not only does He reveal to us the promises, but He enables us to appropriate them…. The Spirit also thinks in us by giving us divine instincts, intuitions and enablements.” A. W. Tozer
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
Our powers of sight–both visual and intellectual–are so dim as to be blindness. Especially if we think we see. Real vision comes from the Holy Spirit, and with it comes understanding and power.
“Seek first the kingdom of heaven.”
