The Agony of Vision

In the hallowed halls of our churches, we find many a man who can preach, yet few who can pray. We have a multitude who can eloquently speak, yet scarce are those who can weep. We have organizers aplenty, yet agonizers are few. We are in dire need of a baptism of clear seeing, a deluge of discernment that will cleanse our clouded vision.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.” (Proverbs 29:18). Without the vision of God, our efforts are in vain, our labor fruitless. We run the race, yet we stumble in the dark, for we lack the light of God's vision.

We desperately need seers, those blessed souls who can see through the mist of worldly distractions and discern the divine will. These are not the ones who merely gaze upon the surface, but those who peer into the depths, who perceive the spiritual realities that lie beneath the physical facade.

The world is full of noise, yet the voice of God often comes in a whisper. Amidst the clamor of voices, the seer hears the still small voice of the Almighty. He discerns the divine amidst the mundane, sees the eternal in the temporal, and perceives the spiritual in the physical.

The seer weeps, not out of despair, but out of a deep sense of the divine sorrow for a world lost in sin. His tears are not of weakness, but of strength - the strength of a heart that bears the burden of the Lord's love for His creation.

The seer agonizes, not out of personal pain, but out of a profound participation in the sufferings of Christ. His agony is not of defeat, but of victory - the victory of the cross, where love triumphed over sin and death.

The seer prays, not with empty words, but with groans that words cannot express. His prayers are not mere petitions, but powerful proclamations of God's promises. He prays with faith, knowing that “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” (James 5:16).

We need such seers today, more than ever. We need men and women who can see clearly, who can weep sincerely, who can agonize earnestly, and who can pray fervently. May the Lord grant us the grace to be such seers, for the glory of His name and the advancement of His kingdom. Amen.
