A short follow up on the issue of the supernatural vs. the natural

An early morning reading of Psalm 96 led to this follow up on this critical issue of educating our spiritual senses so that our supernatural environment becomes more solid and real to us than our natural environment. For if , " the heavens can rejoice, and the earth be glad, the sea resound, the fields be jubilant..the trees of the forest sing for joy...before the Lord when he comes to judge the earth"...Jesus Christ...then how much more should we, for whom He died and was raised to eternal glory, also sing for joy , even in the midst of the noise of life that would keep our senses entirely attuned to that which we can see.

" Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal." 2 Cor.4:16-18 NIV. ( One of the great teaching chapters in the Bible on the correct doctrine of some aspects of the " Good News" which is often ignored much to the peril of the soul and the witness of the church.)
