For we live by believing and not by seeing. (2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT)
Someone once said Faith means believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse. In other words, Faith believes that what is impossible with man is possible with God. The truth is All things are possible with God therefore we must Believe that He is more than able to supply all our needs, and to bring to pass everything He has said in His Word concerning our lives.
We live by believing and not by seeing as Paul said in 2 Corinthians 5:7. Jesus added “DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.” (John 14:1 AMP)
ARE YOU LIVING BY FAITH OR WITH THE INFORMATION YOU HAVE ABOUT YOUR SITUATION?
Friend, your job is to believe in what God has said in His Word about you. His Word says you are prosperous, victorious, empowered, equipped, blessed, and healed. You are the head and not the tail. A thousand may fall at your side, and ten thousand at your right hand, but it shall not come near you. No weapon that is formed against you shall prosper.
God has many words and promises concerning your life but it takes faith to see them come to pass in your life. Faith sees beyond what your eyes could see.
The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times over. (Psalm 12:6 AMP)
The devil may present facts that are contrary to what God has said about your life. You may feel them in your body, hear them from experts, see them with your eyes, etc. Satan is one smart guy who knows the bait to get every individual. However, when you choose to live by believing that you are who God’s Word says you are, you don’t worry about your life because you know that “the Lord himself watches over you! The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade. The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord keeps you from all harm and watches over your life. The Lord Keeps watch over you as you come and go, both now and forever. (Psalms 121:5-8 NLT).
Where fact says there is no way, Faith says there is a way. When fact believes it’s impossible, Faith believes it’s possible. When fact says you will die, Faith says you will live to tell what The Lord has done. When fact says quit, Faith encourages you to move forward. Friend, You need the shield of Faith to quench the fiery darts of the devil which include, but not limited to, the doctor’s report, news about the stock market, report about your business, church, balance of your bank account, your school certificate, negative thoughts, fear, worry, and anxiety.
You need faith to see beyond what an ordinary report or certificate can do for your life. Faith means believing in advance what will only make sense in reverse. Faith sees beyond what your eyes could see.
I don’t know the kind of information (facts) you have about your situation. It could be positive or negative. Whether positive or negative, I came to encourage you to walk in faith, and to Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5 NLT). He has power to supply all your needs through Jesus Christ. Don’t let what you see, hear, and feel discourage you but trust that God has something bigger and better for your life in Jesus’ Name. Amen
This came just when I needed to hear it. Blessings
