For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16).
Whatever you might be going through today, if you’d maintain your confidence in the Word, that particular experience will produce for you a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. How will this happen? It’s by you refusing to look at “the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.” That means you shouldn’t consider the things that are obvious to the optical eyes or the senses. This doesn’t mean you don’t “see” or feel that they’re present, but you’re unruffled and unperturbed by them; your gaze is fixed on the Word.
This was what Abraham did—he refused to consider the obvious adverse circumstances or what he could see and feel in the natural realm. Rather, he was strong in faith giving glory to God (Romans 4:20). This is how God expects you to live: looking at the unseen; that’s when the miracle happens. Now, how can you look at things that aren’t seen? If they can’t be seen, how then can you look at them?
That lets you know He’s talking about seeing with your spirit. The things that aren’t seen are those things God has said concerning you in His Word; they may not be obvious to the optical eyes, but they’re real nonetheless. Likewise, whatever you’ve asked the Lord for, and received with your spirit, is real, even though you may not be able to relate with it through your natural senses. So, you take possession with your spirit and refuse to consider the circumstances that may try to convince you otherwise. That’s how it works.
Dear Father, I thank you for your Word, and its ability to put me over in life, and cause me to fulfil my destiny in you! By my confessions of faith, I cause situations to be in harmony with your perfect will for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Further Study: || Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. ||
|| Mark 11:23-24 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. 24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. ||
