Living It Out By Faith Pt. 16
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.
II Corinthians 4:18 NKJV
We live in two realms at the same time: the seen and the unseen. The Bible also calls these the spiritual and the natural realms. As we have discussed in previous weeks, faith is of the heart, it works in the unseen realm. Faith sees our answer and apprehends it to bring it into the seen realm. But there are some challenges with this process.
Sometimes, the problems we can see with our eyes look so big that we can’t see our answer. Our focus has become our problem and it’s all we can see. The answer to this is to start looking at your answer by faith. We do this by reading the word of God, meditating on His promises, and thanking Him for the answer! It might seem silly to thank God for something we don’t yet see in the natural, but our answer is real, and it is in the unseen realm.
Abraham was promised a child that he did not see for over 20 years. But he did see it by faith! The Bible says he gave glory to God before his son was born. This is what you must do to see your answer in the seen realm. Praise God for the answer that is unseen, believe God for His promise, and you will see it come to pass.
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
