While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal – 2Corinthians 4:18
The Bible says God quickens the dead, and calls things that be not as though they were (Romans 4:17). He framed the worlds by His Word so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear (Hebrews 11:3).
You’ve been called to live the faith-life: “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2Corinthians 5:7). Faith means you see the end-result of an issue from where you are, and then you speak it into existence. In other words, you picture the future according to the Word of God, and proclaim it into being. Refuse to acknowledge the negative picture the devil may present to you; focus on what God says about you in His Word and picture yourself that way.
If for example you’ve been suffering from an ailment, don’t look at the symptoms; contemplate your healing; see yourself healed. If you were weak in any area of your life, don’t keep thinking and talking weakness or limitations; see and declare your strength! Affirm that nothing shall be impossible unto you, for that’s the truth revealed in God’s Word about you.
Satan may sometimes question your faith, asking, “Are you sure those words you heard were real?” Refuse to be moved, for he’s a liar and the father of lies. He knows God’s Word about you is true otherwise, he wouldn’t question it. Never find yourself struggling with your faith and doubting if what God says about you is true. God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). His Word is absolute reality; therefore hold on to that picture of you that you see in His Word.
Dear Father, my faith in you is the power to change my world, and frame the circumstances of life to conform to your destiny for me! I possess the power to determine the course of my life according to the Word of God. Thank you, blessed Father, for giving me a purpose and a destiny in you, which I live to fulfil today, and every day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
