2 Corinthians 4:16-18
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
Things that are tangible depreciate, but the things that are e-ternal breed life and last forever. The eternal things are what God sought man to seek within himself. There is nothing out side of man that did not come through the eternal aspect of man whether it is joy or pain he experiences. Whether it is a beautiful house or a broken house whether his home is clean or dirty, the manifestation of mans outer circumstance have to do with what he sees within himself.
When we see nothing within ourselves, no vision no dreams, we are sure to see nothing outside of ourselves. God gave us the sun the moon and the stars without tangible access outside of ourselves along with power and dominion, which is niether tangible either. Power and dominion is eternally received and accessed through the spirit realm as well as the properties given to us through the spirit realm to rule the universe. Seek to reconcile thyself within accepting eternity which is our original state, for eternity is forever, but temporal material things and thoughts depreciate leaving no appreciation.
