Those who seek and know God bear the unique responsibility of assimilating God’s spiritual kingdom, the Kingdom of God, into the reality in which they live because they are residents of both realms—the present created order and the future spiritual order.
But we live, think, and experience the world in which we live through our five senses. Unfortunately, according to the order of this world, if you cannot see it, hear it, touch it, feel it, or smell it, then it does not exist.
Yet, the Kingdom of God is an invisible reality and to experience its reality is beyond the scope of the five senses. Kingdom citizens have a “sixth sense” that allows them to experience the reality of God and His Kingdom in their lives.
Just because we don’t see God with our eyes or touch Him with our hands does not diminish the reality of His existence or of His power to transform human beings into spiritual beings.
According to the proverb, those who seek the Lord understand everything. That is, their spiritual eyes have been opened.
They now have an enlightened understanding, a personal revelation of God that produces a heightened awareness of God’s unseen reality, of His pervasive activity in this world, and of one’s participation in it.
You could say they are God’s know-it-alls!
We discover new meaning for our individual lives as we begin to experience the world in which we live and the circumstances of our lives through spiritual eyes—that transformed perspective of those who seek and know the Lord; those who are the citizens of the Kingdom of God.
“The One who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.” (1 John 4:5, HCSB)
