Believing what we know even though we can’t see it
2 Corinthians 5:6-7
Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. For we live by faith, not by sight.
We are to live and walk by faith not by sight.
We've all heard the saying and probably said it ourselves many times, “ I'll believe it when I see it.”
Maybe that’s ok for just earthly things, but when it comes to God and the things God has promised us it doesn’t work like that.
We have to believe before we see it or we won't see it.
The story in the Bible about the Iserliite people is the perfect example of this. Beauce of their unbelief they were kept out of the promised land.
They didn't believe God had already been going before them and had been their help and protection, would be with them again conquer the giants in the land. Because of a lack of trust and unbelieve they didn't see it. Numbers 14:11-45)
"For some, when they had heard, did provoke: howbeit not all that came out of Egypt by Moses. But with whom was he grieved forty years? was it not with them that had sinned, whose carcases fell in the wilderness?
Hebrews 3:16-17 KJV
"And to whom swear he that they should not enter into his rest, but to them that believed not? So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief."
Hebrews 3:18-19 KJV
( see more notes below the video )
There are so many things that we have to believe and trust God for without seeing it.
And so many of the promises and blessings of God are only to those who believe.
It’s not just for everyone, but everyone to whom believes.
Salvation is to those who believe.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
John 3:16 KJV
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Romans 10:9-10 KJV
God’s supernatural healing and protection to those who believe.
If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.”
Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
Blessed are those who believe without seeing.
John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.
God’s promises are to those who believe.
Most of us don’t want to believe something until we see it. But the promises of God are almost never seen until we believe.
God wants us to believe Him, In Him what He says He will do without us having to see it first.
We need to have enough faith and believe In God enough that we can boldly say,
“I will believe it even if I don’t see it.”
The 3 young men that were thrown in the fiery furnace believed without a doubt that their God could deliver them from the furnace even if they didn't see it. EVEN IF, they weren't bowing down!!
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
Daniel 3:17-18 KJV
The more we believe God for the more we will see.
What are you Believing God for? What is the miracle you are Believing God for?
How much are you Believing God for.
The more you believe the more you will see.
And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
Matthew 13:57-58 KJV
