Living in a physical word, it is so easy for us to get caught up in the physical. We live within a physical body, which is stimulated through the five senses—hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste. As believers, if we do not remind ourselves of our true identity daily, we can forget that we are spiritual beings.
Spiritual beings are more in tuned with the supernatural than the natural—the unseen versus the visible—truth versus fact. We live in this world and are affected by the same things people of the world are affected by; however, our reaction should be different from the world’s, because we are to put more confidence in the unseen than what we can naturally see, hear, and feel around us.
Faith is about believing in the unseen—being confident of God’s promises over our lives though they might not have manifested in the natural yet. Even if your whole world seems to be falling apart around you, never cease to believe and trust God to come through for you. If the doctor informs you of a physical ailment, stand on God’s word, which is truth. It might be a fact that you have a physical ailment—you may even feel the symptoms— but the truth is “by His stripes you are healed” (Isaiah 53:5). My challenge for you this week is to re-direct your focus from the facts of the life to the Word of the Life—Jesus.
Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” (NIV)
2 Corinthians 5:7: “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” (NKJV)
