Do you recall when you were a child how you would pretend that you owned something great? Or how you would say that when you grow up that you will get this or that or be this or that?
More than likely, it was something out of your reach because of your age, maturity, financial situation and the knowledge or wisdom to receive what you had in your sight.
Unfortunately, as we age our environment, the people, what they say kill what we have in our sight. And what we are surrounded by, we tend to believe what we see and touch rather than what we see in the vision of our mind which is the heart.
And, before you know it, only a small percent of the people who visualized and said as a child will walk into their destiny as an adult.
Do you know as children of the living GOD we not only get a perfectly clean slate, but we get to dream and visualize again? Imagine setting your sights on getting your house in order, saying so and watching it come to pass.
And of course as its human nature not to just stop there because we are so elated with those results we just have to step it up a notch and dream and visualize on something greater. Maybe, now it will be better employment or education or a raise from your current employment.
Never give up on hoping for what is not seen in your life today in the natural. Dream and visualize largely. Beloved brothers of the faith in CHRIST JESUS, we serve an awesome GOD. A FATHER who is a provider to HIS children, everything that we stand in need of is located in the heavens and all we need to do is ask in faith, thank HIM for them and wait.
Believe me, in the appointed time you will see what you asked for, nothing ever arrives late from GOD, it’s always on time according to your faith, and according to your maturity. Meaning, whatever you are asking for, are you able to handle that at this very moment or are your motives pure as to why you are asking for that?
I will like to provide you with two examples that most consumers will be able to relate too if they have ever made the following purchases, these will give us a better understanding of what it is to hope for.
- The purchase of a house. You are given a deed, this is a legal transference of property from the previous owner to you. However, it comes with conditions, you must pay off the balance before you can own it in full. Not once does anyone ever say I just purchased a house and I share the expense with the previous owner or realtor, everything about that house is yours because it’s what you hoped for.
- The purchase of an automobile. You are given a title, a legal transference of property from the previous owner to you. However, it comes with conditions, you must pay off the balance before you can own it in full. You are responsible for all maintenance and tickets on the vehicle, it’s not shared with the bank or previous owner. This is the car you hoped for.
Walking by faith and not by sight is conditioned by faith and maturity. So hope in what is eternal and not what is temporal.
2 Corinthians 5:7; Heb. 11:1, Rom. 8:24
