Can’t see it? Check the power line if you are a believer who can’t believe beyond the physical realm. There’s a disconnect somewhere if you can’t see those things that are not—as if they really are. After you receive salvation, your mind must be renewed; your old way of thinking must rise to a supernatural level and begin to see and call things like God wants you to see and call them.
Once you have prayed:
- If you’re sick—don’t keep talking about how ill you are.
- If your money is low—don’t keep talking about how broke you are.
- If you’re forgetful—don’t keep making jokes about your fading memory.
Calling those things which are not . . .
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews11:1).
I speak only for me; I can’t be contained anymore by “religious restrictions” that leave me powerless when I know the Holy Spirit wants to take me to a supernatural realm where faith—is the predictable outcome—not a random incident. And for faith to have its way, my attention must be on God and His promises. Because what He says should be my reality; if not, do I really believe and trust God?
To see things the way the Holy Spirit wants us to see them—requires us to regularly spend one-on-one quality time with Him on a personal level. As our relationship matures, we become humbly honored just to be in His presence, not necessarily wanting anything but Him. That’s when a bond begins to form; intimacy develops; we want what He desires; we recognize His guidance and quickly obey the promptings of His voice; then our measure of faith begins to delete cataracts caused by doubts and fears; our spiritual vision comes into focus.
Is your power line connected?
Power line inspection:
- Is God your number one priority? (Matthew 22:37)
- Are your thoughts aligned with His Word? (2 Corinthians 10:5)
- Can you discern God’s voice from all the noise? (John 10:4; 1 John 4:1)
- Do you trust Him no matter what you don’t see? (Hebrews 11:1; Mark 9:23)
- Do you stay suited in the whole armor of God? (Ephesians 6:10-18)
- Do you think God is pleased with your relationship with Him? (John 14:15,21)
If you can’t see clearly through the lens of faith, don’t become discouraged; ask for the Holy Spirit’s help and believe what He tells you, and do what He says.
Our faith connected to the Power Source—Oh, My Goodness; we’re getting ready to see some stuff!
