Faith is not only believing in what we can see with our natural senses, but believing that what we see with the eyes of our spirit will be made manifest so that we can then see, feel and touch it in the natural.
God wants us to go from “faith to faith”, ever increasing in our ability and capacity to believe and to see those things that are not as though they are. When we’ve climbed one hill to go to the next one, continually climbing higher until we are not just standing on the top of little hills anymore, we are standing on mountain summits.
“The Lord GOD is my strength, And He has made my feet like hinds’ feet, And makes me walk on my high places.” (Habakkuk 3:19)
“You have also given me the shield of Your salvation, And Your right hand upholds me; And Your gentleness makes me great. You enlarge my steps under me, And my feet have not slipped”. (Psalm 18:36)
We have all been given a measure of faith and God expects us to do something with that measure; to grow and use it to call things into being. That’s the process God uses to bring the vision He gives us to pass.
When we look at some of the mighty exploits of people in the bible and read about the men and women who believed God, we can sometimes feel inadequate. But we shouldn’t. They simply grew their measure of faith to believe for what they “saw” was possible in God. They held onto God’s promises, fed their faith and got some faith muscles.
It’s not a secret for a select few; we can all do something with the measure of faith we have been given. Use it and grow it! God says He is no respecter of persons; He does not show partiality, but He does reward those who diligently seek Him. (Romans 2:12)
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him”. (Hebrews 11:6)
Today God wants each one of us to wait on Him for the vision He has for us. It will no doubt be bigger than your faith right now but don’t be discouraged or let go of the revelation He reveals to you because it seems impossible or too hard. Build your faith by going to God’s Word and finding out what He says about it. When you do it will grow your measure of faith and cause those things you “see” to come to pass.
“But the people who know their God shall be strong and carry out great exploits. (Daniel 11:32)
Prayer: Lord please reveal to me the vision you have for me. I take my measure of faith and choose to use it and grow it, so that I too can carry out and fulfil all that you have for me. In Jesus Name Amen.
