Sometimes stepping out in faith is the hardest thing that we’ll ever have to do. We see the circumstances all around us, but we can’t see that God is working for us in the supernatural. We’re too focused on the natural. But we need to start walking in faith, not by sight. Easier said than done, right? Of course, but isn't the important part about "faith" not seeing what you're believing for?
Hebrews 11:1 defines faith. "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen."
We've got to be blind to see. Sounds crazy, I know, but a blind person walks by faith every day. He has to believe that he won't run into something; he has to believe in his own abilities to get him from here to there in complete darkness. So instead of having the ability to literally see, the blind man has to see by faith.
"My faith shall be my eyes." We need to take that example and start letting faith dictate our lives. What is the point of faith if we can't believe what we've asked for? God has to know that we believe that He'll provide whatever we're asking for.
I challenge you to start putting the faith of God in your everyday life. Let your faith be your eyes. Forget your empty bank account. Forget the symptoms of the sickness you have. Forget what is in front of you that is terrible. Instead, see the outcome you know God has for you, and believe for it. Don’t believe in what is in front of you.
It doesn't have to be hard. We’re the ones who make it hard. We make it impossible. Not God. God is faithful and just to give us what we ask for. We just don't believe.
Let me leave you with this verse.
1 John 5:4--For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
Notice what it says here. Our faith overcomes the world! We have the victory! The Bible says so. We just have to have faith!
Let faith be your eyes, and you can overcome the world and have victory!
