We have to start believing God’s Word,
even if we cannot ‘see’ God’s Word manifest (yet)!
When it comes to knowing and understanding God,
… our problem is that we always look at things from our perspective,
… instead of seeing things the way God sees them.
In fact the one verse that we so easily quote,
… is probably the one we least understand.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
When we have a need that requires God’s provision or intervention,
… we look at His promises and what His Word says,
then ‘step out in faith’ based on Hebrews 11:1,
… but have we really understood and stepped out in faith?
Are we really seeing what God sees for our lives?
Take for instance a child at a swimming pool,
… to the child the pool looks inviting,
… and he does not see any danger at all!
However an adult knows the true depth and sees the danger!
Similarly, when God looks at our lives and circumstances,
… He does not see things the way we see it,
but He sees what He has purposed and promised.
Therefore, if we want to live what God purposed and promised in His Word,
… we need to start seeing things the way God sees them,
… and start believing what God made available to us through Jesus!
God’s promises are not just words in a book,
… but they are pictures of what God has made available for us,
And, when we start seeing what God sees, and take hold of that in faith,
… that is when faith becomes the substance
… and the evidence of things not seen!
But without faith it is impossible to please Him,
for he who comes to God must believe that He is,
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
