Faith is not Blind
Wednesday September 18, 2019
Ephesians 3:20 NKJV
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that
we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
GOD’S WORD Translation
Glory belongs to God, whose power is at work in us. By this power he can do infinitely more than we can ask or imagine
Vision is not seeing things as they are but as they will be!
“What I’m looking for is not out there, it is in me”
The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no
vision. – Helen Keller.
“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”—Jonathan Swift
Lift Up Your Eyes
When God Spoke to Abraham and said leave your home
Genesis 12:1 NKJV
Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.
And the Lord said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him: “Lift your eyes now and look from the place where you are northward,
southward, eastward, and westward; 15 for all the land which you see I give to you and your descendants forever. 16 And I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if a man could number the dust of the earth, then your descendants also could be numbered. 17 Arise, walk in the land through its length and its width, for I give it to you.” 18 Then Abram moved his tent, and went and dwelt by the terebinth trees of Mamre, which are in Hebron, and built an altar there to the Lord.
It’s a Law
It Works The Same Way Every Time.
2 Corinthians 3:18
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord. What we behold we become. Transformed into the same image into what? That same image that you are beholding. Whatever you are beholding that is what you become, what we fix our eyes on what we do not let our eyes depart from.
Joshua 1:8 NKJV
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Genesis 11:6 KJV
And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
NHEB translation says they will be hindered in nothing they meditate
The word restrained in verse 6 means to clip off or the cut off as in gathering grapes. Another words man’s imagination has the ability to reach into the realm of the Spirit and gather things that did not even exist and a cut him off like a grape. Nothing will be withheld nothing will be inaccessible to them.
Genesis 15:1–4 NKJV
After these things the word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”
2 But Abram said, “Lord God, what will You give me, seeing I go childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 Then Abram said, “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!” 4 And behold, the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “This one shall not be your heir, but one who will come from your own body shall be your heir.”
Genesis 15:5 KJV
And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.
Write it Down
write the vision and make it plain
Finally, write your vision down.
those who write their goals are 50 times more likely to achieve their goals. This act of faith—writing the vision—began with God. But it’s always nice when you hear that science agrees with the Word.
Habakkuk 2:2–4 (KJV)
And the Lord answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
That he may run that readeth it.
3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
But at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
Though it tarry, wait for it;
Because it will surely come, it will not tarry.
4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him:
But the just shall live by his faith.
