First of all, let me make a shocking statement: Everything we’ll ever need on planet earth has already been provided by our Heavenly Father! Wow! Really? Yes, really. It might not seem like it’s true, but it is nonetheless. Let’s go to God’s Word and find out the truth. Remember, our experiences don’t prove or negate the Word of God. God’s Word is true, now and always, regardless of anyone’s experience.
2 Peter 1:3-4 (KJV) 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Ephesians 1:3 (KJV) 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
Here we see that God has not only blessed us with all spiritual blessings in Christ, but He has also given us all things that pertain to life and godliness through the knowledge of Him – Jesus.
Notice that all these blessings have already been given to us – past tense. But, they’ve been given through the knowledge of the Jesus, Who is the Word of God. Everything we need is in the God’s Word and has already been given. Our part is to receive. Remember, there’s a God-part and a man-part.
So, how do we receive? By our faith! We can’t get away from faith. That’s the way we please God and access all the blessings that He’s already given.
Walking by faith and not by sight has to be learned because our natural inclination is to follow the flesh, which does not get us the promises of God. Being led by the flesh is called being carnal and that leads to death. But, being spiritually minded, by following the Word, leads to life and peace.
Romans 8:5-8 (KJV) 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
Being led by your five physical senses is being led by your flesh and that will not get the promises of God to manifest in your life. Even though all things that we will ever need have already been given, they’re not in the physical realm but in the spirit realm. And the way we access the spirit realm to bring what we need into the physical realm is by our faith!
Romans 10:17 (KJV) 17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Keep growing and developing your faith so that you can partake of all the blessings the Lord has provided for you.
