Seeing “it” in the natural before we can believe it—is not faith. Who can’t have great undeniable faith when what they’re believing for is right in their sight?
Has anyone seen God?
No one has seen God with their physical eyes. (John 1:18) Having the ability to see beyond what is naturally in front of us, as challenging as it can be, is what Christianity is all about. Even Thomas, one of the twelve who walked with Jesus, had a hard time believing that Jesus had been resurrected without physically seeing Him. (John 20:24-29)
However, there is no way getting around it; Believers are required to believe what they can’t physically see. Believers’ spiritual eyes are developed from faith to faith. The more they remember God’s faithfulness in past circumstances, the clearer they’re able to see when life demand they see beyond the obvious.
God instructs us to believe those things which are not as though they were. (Romans 4:17) So, how do we maintain visual acuity when it’s hard to see?
Spiritual sight can become blurry when the manifestation that we are believing for is not done instantaneously. We have to learn and put into practice what God tells us through His Word. If He tells us it is so—then it is so. When we receive God’s written Word in our hearts; we’re more opened to receive a rhema word in our spirit (the Word applied to personal situations.)
Genuine faith is having the ability to believe what can’t be seen.
Old adage: Seeing is believing.
God: Believe it—then see it!
