Seeing the Unseen

T.W. Hunt’s writings have had a profound influence in my life through the years.  His writings and teaching are the sort that have entered my life and have become a part of me.  Recently I ran across another short book by him called Seeing the Unseen: Cultivate a Faith That Unveils the Hidden Presence of God.

He identified seven factors that help us cultivate such faith.
1. “A strong sense of the Holy Spirit’s mediation to the Father in all that I pray.” (Ephesians 5:18)
2. “A commitment to praying in the mind of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 2:16)
3. “A strong sense of progression, upward and forward.” (Philippians 3:13-14)
4. “A deep, strong desire to please the Father.” (John 8:29)
5. “A strong sense that nothing is impossible with omnipotence.” (Matthew 21:21)
6. “Thoughts concentrated entirely on God.” (Ephesians 4:6)
7. “A sincere desire for the will of God above personal whims.” (Matthew 6:10)

Hunt’s book is well worth reading. The only negative thing that I can say is that he begins by applying the Scripture through the filter of Greek philosophy. Beyond that minor point, the book is an excellent reminder of many things that we should practice in our devotional lives.
