What Do You See

Having faith takes more than just speaking something you want to happen. Faith is described in Hebrews 11:1 as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.

Having the faith to believe in the unseen is something very powerful. This means that this type of faith still sees in the darkest of situations, that the very thing you are hoping for is still in view. In 1 Kings 18:41-44 Elijah believes in the word of the Lord that he is going to send rain after a three year drought. He first believes in the word of the Lord, he then tells Ahab to get going before he get’s caught in the rain & tells him he hears the abundance of rain coming, he then prays what I believe is a prayer of thanksgiving, and finally he sends his servant to go look for the rain. His servant went a total of seven times before he could see the cloud that looked like the size of a fist. Each time he reported to Elijah that he saw nothing, but that didn’t discourage Elijah. He simply sent him back till he could see what he already knew was there.

Are you willing to keep trying at something or looking for something, believing in something or someone if it looks like nothing is ever going to change? Can you see that rainbow of promise through those dark clouds. Do you have the faith to speak that husband saved, your children saved, your body healed, an increase in every area of your life, just as God has promised you?

If  God said it then believe it and speak it as if it’s already so.  Anytime someone ask you about your son who is out in the street say “That man you see out there is not my son. My son is saved, filled with the Holy Ghost and preaching and teaching the word of God.” When you see him you say “Rub some of that anointing on me. I see the fire of the Holy Spirit on you.” Speak life over every situation because it already lives in the spirit, and you are just waiting on God’s timing for it to manifest in the natural. It may take some time before you see that thing manifest but keep your spiritual eye open and your natural eyes will have to line up.

Something Is Missing………..

Sitting here at my computer after being up all night, I am struggling with words to say. That’s part of the reason I was up all night, pleading with God to give me fresh manna from Heaven. I toiled most of the night asking ‘what I had done to lose the passion to write?’  I love to write about the goodness of Jesus and all He wants to do for them who love Him.

I am empty for words, yet in still I dig deep to pull up something that will inspire you the reader. I type and I delete repeatedly, until I almost give up. Then in the midst of my distress, I now hear a whisper that just says be still. I sit and I listen as the sweet sound of His voice begins to speak. It’s time you rest from writing & take time to worship me. 

So as I end, let me leave this with you. Sometimes we can be so caught up in working for God, that we don’t take the time to worship and sit at His feet. Making our prayers endless lists, asking God to give me more, or what else do you need me to do. God inhabits the praises of his people and he desires true, sincere worship out of us each and every day. Worship so deep in the spirit that by the time we are finished, we haven’t desired nothing more, but more of his presence in our life.

That’s the key to keep the passion for Gods will alive.
