Seeing What God Sees!!!

"These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen then afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and Pilgrims on the earth" Heb 11:13.

This morning as I read and meditated on this verse I got a glimpse of how important sight is. There are two realms of sight talked about in the scripture. Physical sight and spiritual sight. People that live by faith have spiritual sight. They see through the eyes of faith. The scripture says we walk by faith and not by sight!!!! God's promises to us is what God sees for our life. The reason these people died in faith is because they saw and embraced what God had promised them. They embraced what God saw for their life. When our physical eyes sees an impossibility faith sees the God that does the impossible. Assurance is being sure that something will happen. The one thing I am sure of is that no matter what is going on in my physical circumstance, God sees something bigger and the bigger is given to us through His promises. For me to overcome the circumstance in my life I must see what God sees and walk accordingly. When I assured and embrace what God sees I will speak and say what God would speak and say. Rm 10: 9 states that "if we will confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in our hearts that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved". I believe what we say is what we believe. When we believe in our heart what God has promised than we will confess it through our words. The scripture says that out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. People around you can see what you believe by what you say. Parents can you see what God sees for your children if you can than you are probably speaking it to them on a regular basis. Praise God for His promises and we must diligently seek them out for our selves so that we can see what God sees.
