~Our view~ By Faith
It has really come to my attention lately that I cannot base my feelings on what I can see.
After all, that is the definition of Faith isn’t it? To be certain of what we don’t see.
But how often are we consciously making the choice to not decide what the outcome will be based on our evidence, or lack thereof?
I recently heard in a message by Pastor Levi Lusko, that when Jesus healed people He did it differently every time. Sometimes He spoke, sometimes it was a touch, etc. He did this as to keep people on their toes. If we knew how He would heal, or provide, or come through, it wouldn’t require any Faith on our part, and then we could get it in our head that we were doing it on our own.
That’s not to say that we don’t have our part. In fact, most times, He won’t do what we can do. But after our part, our sewing of the seeds, only He can bring the rain.
Proverbs 13:12- “Hope differed makes the heart sick.” This is exactly what the enemy wants in your life. If you have no hope, how intentional can you be living?
And what better way to take away your hope but by getting you to focus on our tiny, narrow view! When we make decisions from that view we completely box ourselves in and put limits on God.
He can see everything. He is not surprised by anything that is happening, and His intention with whatever you are facing right now, is to bring you closer to Him. For you to lean on Him, trust in Him, and walk with Him.
Getting a birds-eye-view perspective often helps me in many areas. I am able to see life through lenses of gratitude, getting centered, and most of all hope.
You can say to Him, “I don’t like this, it doesn’t feel good, but I trust you.”
Open yourself up to the magnificent possibilities that He could be eagerly waiting to rain down in your life, if you would open your perspective and receive.
