He Sees Us

Return to us, O God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! PSALM 80:14
In 1927, a theoretical physicist named Werner Heisenberg dropped a bomb that shook the scientific community to the core. The aftershocks still rattle us today. In layman’s terms, Heisenberg’s Theory of Uncertainty, as it is called, reads something like this: We cannot truly know what goes on at the subatomic level, because the very act of viewing these microscopic particles changes their path as they orbit an atom. Said differently, just looking at something changes it.
Ah, the power of vision!
Vision affects our momentum and direction—it forges a new path. Vision is a catalyst, a power that jolts us off our sleepy routine and headlong into a new adventure in life. Vision lures. It is the nucleus of our ministry around which we (and our organizations) orbit.
God’s vision is the most powerful force in the universe. His eyes are always upon us. A revelation of this will radically explode our present state and catapult us onto a path beyond what is currently imaginable. Actually, it transports us to the imaginable: to dreams lying dormant in our hearts. And it scatters them broadly in rich earth to germinate and take root.
In biblical times, prophets were called seers. Their words were known as oracles or visions. These divine revelations transformed entire nations. The prophets were God’s change agents for the human race. They knew the power of vision to act as a procession for the hand of God. Call it the Certainty Principle: Where His eyes rest and His lips speak, His hand acts.
Where are the “seers” today? The dawning age desperately needs men and women who have forged this deep, powerful gift and tempered it with discernment and humility—individuals who can say with Isaiah, “I saw the Lord” (Isaiah 6:1).
