We Look At The Unseen

We Look At The Unseen

God calls His people to live by faith. In fact, Scripture tells us that “the just shall live by faith” and that “without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him”(Hebrews 10:38, Hebrews 11:6). So to live by faith is absolutely critical in developing a strong relationship with our Lord. Unfortunately, so many of God’s people struggle to maintain a life marked by this one guiding principle – that is “living by faith.” So how do we do it?


This phrase can be defined in a couple different ways but I see God’s Word describe it as trusting in God and what His Word tells us in spite of what we may perceive with the five physical senses. Your five senses may see you as weak, but God’s Word tells the weak to say they are strong. Your bank account may claim you are poor but the Bible tells us that God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Those around you may tell you that you can’t accomplish anything, yet God’s Word tells you that you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you (Philippians 4:13).   For many people who live only by the five physical senses, seeing situations and circumstances by the eye of faith is foreign at best and impossible at worst. But we are not destined to be ruled but what we see for we are God’s children. We walk by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7).


When Abraham was told that he would be the father of many nations even though his wife Sarah was well past child-bearing years, he had a choice. Was he going to believe God and His Word or would he doubt God and believe the deadness of Sarah’s womb? He choice to believe God and it was counted as righteousness before the Lord. And of course, he became what God said he would, the father of many nations. What do you see in your life that tends to contradict what the Word of God declares regarding you? Remember these words from the Apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 4:18, “while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Be blessed even more!!
