Can You See The Picture? – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional April 7th



(Faith Is The Essence, Not The Process)

TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 11:1
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

“I refuse to entertain lying vanities; all things are mine. I’ve got the admission!” James roared in his room.

James had been meditating on and declaring God’s Word to himself until he envisioned himself as a student at his dream college!

He didn’t let go of the image or entertain any picture contrary to what he had firmly grasped. He continued praising God and speaking in faith until his admission letter to that college arrived in the mail. Glory to God!

Hebrews 11:1 says faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of unseen realities. That means faith is the essence of hope.

In acting your faith, your focus shouldn’t be on the process because faith is the essence, not the process.

The Bible says about Abraham: being not weak in faith, he considered not his body now dead, neither the deadness of Sarah’s womb, but he was strong in faith—in the essence. Hallelujah!

Abraham’s focus wasn’t on how the baby Isaac would come but on God from whom he’d come, for God had given him His Word of promise, and he counted God faithful to His Word. He saw the baby with the eyes of faith.

Today, what are you seeing? What has your faith pictured? What has your spirit taken a hold of? Hold on to the picture that you want and refuse to worry about how it’ll navigate to you!

Don’t think, “Who does God have over there to make this or that happen for me? No! Your part is to stay focused on Him; stay your heart and your mind on what you want.

Your hope shouldn’t be on someone helping you with the money but on God—your source. Every so often, make bold faith proclamations and refuse contrary signs, feelings or fears, giving glory to God!

Remember, what you see is what you get. Hold on to the picture because when you look away, it dissipates. But when you look at it, you see it in action, and it manifests. That’s what’s important. Hold on to it.

Dear Father, you’ve set eternity in my heart. I have an extraordinary capacity to contemplate, envision or see pictures of possibilities and the glorious life you’ve called me to live. By the Spirit, I comprehend the immeasurable, unlimited and surpassing greatness of your power at work in me. My faith is alive, producing results always, in Jesus’ Name Amen.
