WHAT DO YOU SEE?

Dearly Beloved,
It is exactly nine years today that I have been ministering to people throughout the world through the Internet. An email ministry that started on February 18, 2003 has metamorphosed to an Internet ministry with almost ten aspects. Since most of you are not among the 47 people that received my first message and one of the best messages, as a way of celebrating the ministry every year, let me resend the first message to you:
WHAT DO YOU SEE?
“We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them" (Numbers 13:33 NIV).
"The land we passed through and explored is exceedingly good…. And do not be afraid of the people of the land, because we will swallow them up. Their protection is gone, but the LORD is with us. Do not be afraid of them." (Numbers 14:7, 9 NIV).
These were the views of two groups that went to explore the land of Canaan. Undoubtedly, the two groups were saying the absolute things about what they saw in the land. The former is the carnal sight that did not see beyond the ordinary, while the latter is the spiritual sight that saw the extraordinary.
What do see in your situation? Is it the ordinary or the extraordinary? If you see only your situation, you are seeing only the ordinary, but if you believe, you will see beyond the situation. Jesus told Martha, "Did I not tell you that if you believed, you would see the glory of God?" (John 11:40 NIV). And Paul testified, “We know these things are true by believing, not by seeing [the ordinary]” (2 Corinthians 5:7 TLB).
See beyond the ordinary by believing in the Lord that He will help you, and He will be glorified in your life.
In His service,
Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).

As I requested on that first day of the ministry, "Pray that I will be able to continue to send messages like this, and forward them to your friends. May the Lord bless you as you do. Amen."
