In today’s society, most people need to see things in order to believe in them. But for those of us who follow Christ, we are told to believe in things unseen. The Bible explains this point very well. In Hebrews 11:1 “NOW FAITH is the assurance of things hoped for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality.” So the bottom-line here is that we must have faith and trust in what we can not see; therefore, making it a reality within our lives; BELIEVING IN OUR BIG GOD and HIS PROMISES!
From my own personal experience, I can say that when I started thinking and saying things that didn’t exist in my life yet, I felt like a hypocrite. If I was feeling sick, I would think and say…”By His Stripes I am healed“ (Isaiah 53:5). Or maybe my funds were low and I would think and say, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not lack.” (Psalm 23:1) When you begin practicing this simple tool, it does feel awkward or out of the norm. But the truth is…this should be our NORM!
Even if you have faith of a mustard seed (Luke 17:6), God will begin transforming your dreams into reality. The more you focus on Him while being grateful for His promises, the more you will see His beautiful provisions in your life. His blessings are all around us, every moment of every day. Make it a point to be grateful for all the small things in your life because He will see your gratefulness and trust you with so much more. The best thing we can do is keep our faith aligned with His word. DO NOT LOOK at your current circumstances. LOOK AT GOD and HIS PROMISES!
Always remember that no matter how bad things might be in your life right now; be grateful and have faith in HIM because there is always light at the end of the tunnel. OUR GOD LOVES TO GIVE! Philippians 4:19 tells us that “my God shall supply all your needs”. So, have FAITH that everything will turn out for your good because HE knows what is best for you, now and forever!
