Well then, donít believe your eyes. They may tell you that you canít get well. They may even tell you youíll always be broke, or they may tell you thereís no hope for things to get better. The circumstances may appear to be unchanged according to your natural sight. But those of us who are in Christ Jesus are called to live in a hope that rises above our present situation and to believe thereís a more vivid reality just waiting for us to claim. The same faith that required you to believe in eternal life, is the same faith that gives you hope that God will faithfully be present in your circumstance and deliver you from the terror of your trial. As a matter of fact, you may have been delivered and not even realized it.
Well how can that be, my problem is starring me right in the face. No, what that problem is doing is scarring you with a fear that keeps a lid on your faith. First of all, stop claiming it as your own. Itís not your problem, itís a problem. If you continue to claim it, youíll have a hard time giving it over to the Lord because you see it as your own. The enemy will keep you paralyzed in the fear of that problem. Your faith in Jesus being bigger than the problem must combat the fear of it for you to get the freedom to have the faith to release it to God once and for all.
When the fear is gone, the spell will be broken because youíve chosen to focus on Jesus instead of your situation, no longer being paralyzed by the problem. Youíll be free to hear the still small voice of the Holy Spirit speaking the very answer to the problem. Heís probably already been speaking to you, but the voices of fear have been so loud you havenít been able to hear Him. So fix your eyes not on what you see as the problem, but on what is unseen in the spirit of Godís grace and mercy to deliver you from the fear of it.
