Just because you can’t see the sun shining where you are, does that mean its not shining somewhere else in the World? It is the same with faith, you may not see it yet, for “faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” You may still be hoping the sun will shine yet you may not see it; the evidence is there, but it just hasn’t come into your spectrum yet.
Believe to receive
Turn your faith into belief, and allow the substance to transform before you–into your realm, to receive. Anxiously looking doesn’t bring it to reality and neither does doubt, but trust without wavering.
Examine your heart daily, to see if there be anything in you that would hinder your ability to receive.
Anger, fear, anxiety, heartache, sadness and shame are precursors to doubt and disable your connection to the Father. True trust casts all other emotions and feelings aside, and stands in readiness to receive the Son and shine!
“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Heb. 11:1 KJV
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we hope for it with patience. Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with sighs too deep for words. And he who searches the hearts of men knows what is the mind of the Spirit because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.” Rom. 8:25-27
“–Have faith in God. Truly I say to you whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will.” Mk. 11:22-24
“But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” Ja. 1:6-8
“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.'” Mk. 10:27
“And those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament; and those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.” Dan. 12:3
“Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” Matt. 13:43
