My good friend (and great Bible teacher Dave Feldman) has an interesting “tag line” on his twitter account; “fixing my eyes on what I cannot see”.
This sounds quite silly if you do not know about the spiritual dimension to all our lives, however it is a very positive state of mind to live by.
We exist in a physical realm, however we also live in a spiritual realm.
Right now even though I am sitting at my desk in my study I am also sitting in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 2 v 6).
Right now even though I have wants and needs and indeed suffer some illness I have everything I can ever need including healing, wholeness and prosperity already given to me (Ephesians 1 v 3).
How can this be?
It is possible because part of us is spirit; we are made of spirit, soul and body.
In our spirit man we have been created new (2 Corinthians 5 v 17) and been created in righteousness and true holiness (Ephesians 4 v 24) and indeed possess everything already that we need for a life of super abundance.
We may not be able to see this yet in the physical realm with our physical eyes but it can come to pass if we “see it” in the spiritual realm; that is if we trust, believe and understand these spiritual truths.
This is what Dave is talking about when he says he is “fixing his eyes on what he cannot see”.
We cannot physically see the spiritual realm however we can see it (understand it) if we focus on these truths that we see in the Word of God; if we focus on the finished work of Jesus Christ.
I urge you today, start fixing your eyes on what you cannot see; is it healing, or is it acceptance, or is it prosperity; fix your eyes on the truth that God has already placed inside of you in your born again spirit.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the understanding that I am part spirit and thank you for the super abundance that you have already given me within”.
Hebrews 11 v 1…..Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen
