(Hebrews 11:1 VOICE- Faith is the assurance of things you have hoped for, the absolute conviction that there are realities you’ve never seen.)
I think all of us can appreciate the beauty of this verse and the truth that it holds for our lives because so often we get cemented in the here and now unable to envision the promises that GOD has predestined for our future. Whenever we feel defeated we have the tendency to only focus on what we have the power to see in that moment, but faith is knowing that we serve a GOD WHO’S conquered everything that has the power to harm or defeat us and believing that HE has incredible, unbelievable, unseen blessings awaiting the arrival of our believing hearts to give them life.
It’s so much easier for us to focus on the negatives of life than it is for us to believe for the positives because the negatives surround us and to see the positives we have to be able to conceptualize a view or a path above and beyond where our earthly circumstances or situations say we should be. Our lives are not defined by what we can see, but determined by what we believe. (1 Corinthians 2:5 NLV- In this way, you do not have faith in CHRIST because of the wisdom of men. You have faith in CHRIST because of the power of GOD.) GOD’S wisdom and power will always surpass our ability and understanding, but the benefit and beauty of that for us is HE always welcomes us into HIS PRESENCE with open arms and through that intimacy with HIM we have infinite access to that extraordinary wisdom which allows HIS exceptional power to come to fruition within our lives.
Don’t allow trials, tribulations, or a moment of weakness to define or determine what GOD has the power and ability to do in your life. (Mark 9:23 NLT- “What do you mean, ‘If I can’?” JESUS asked. “Anything is possible if a person believes.”) Live expecting GOD to do exactly what HE’S promised in HIS WORD that HE would accomplish in your life. Fear puts limitations on GOD’S power and says focus on defeat, but faith says failure is not an option because my GOD can do all things.
I love you guys!
