“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Now remember, the whole Christian armor is supernatural, if you are a Christian.
You say, “Seeing is believing.” You can never be a Christian if you believe that.
You cannot be a Christian and have to see the thing. The whole armor of God is supernatural. Love, joy, peace, faith, longsuffering, goodness, meekness, gentleness, and Holy Ghost, it’s all unseen. And the Christian doesn’t look to what he sees with his eyes. He looks to what he sees with his faith.
And his faith can only be based upon one thing, that’s the Word… When you get to that Word, that’s the living thing… When your mind and eyes can be single to that Word, and focus that in till you see exactly what God is doing, what a wonderful thing.
Abraham saw it. See? He did not look to any of the misunderstandings of the promise…But what did he do? He never paid any attention to what the natural things was. He looked at what God said. It become such a reality to him till he didn’t see nothing else but what God said. He left his home. He separated himself from all unbelief, anything that would try to pull him away. He separated himself so he could walk alone.
That’s what every genuine believer has to do. Separate yourself from these doubters and unbelievers, and walk with Christ. It, it’s Life, to you.
And Abraham did such a thing…Why? He had focused his—his mind to the will of God, by the Word of God, and believed it. If we can focus ourself to the plan of God, to what God wants for us, and what God promised us, and let everything else alone. No matter how long it is, just keep believing.
