I trust you are walking by faith and not by sight. The Bible says the elders obtained a good report by faith. Their reputation was solidified; their stature increased among people and before God because of their faith and willingness to act upon the things the Lord had put in their hearts to do.
I tell you, God will increase your stature, your reputation, and your power among men and with God by faith. Acting on the will of the Lord, we’re going to trust God for the rest of our lives. You must make up your mind to walk by faith and not by sight.
Look to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. The book of Hebrews admonishes us to do that. When we get our eyes on Jesus, we recognize His lordship, His preeminence over everything, and all of His counsel will stand. Sometimes we look away at the problem, we look away at the difficulty, we look away at our fears and failures, and we begin to think like Peter. But if we take our eyes off those things and put them back on Jesus, we can walk on water. I’m here to encourage you to lift up your eyes and see Jesus. He is the Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Faith in Him makes everything happen.
We’re in a great time. We’re in an awesome season of the Lord, but you must keep your eyes on Him and all of His counsel will stand. I love you much!
