“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; BEHOLD (SEE), all things are become new” 2Cor 5:17
Your speed or even how far you can go in life is essentially determined by what and how far you can see. Our opening text is a very popular scripture we quote every now and then but very few harness its benefits. Many wonder why old things still persist even after they have given their lives to Christ; it is simply because they aren’t seeing the new. Now in Jeremiah 1:11-12 God asked Jeremiah;
“...what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it”
In other words until you have seen correctly God is not obliged to perform His word. You can therefore be able to quote the whole bible from Genesis to Revelation and still not have anything to show for until you are able to see yourself in it. Can you see what is written? That is faith and of course where your imaginative power comes to play.
For instance, John 10:10b promises everyone in Christ abundant life; do you see yourself in that light? The word of God becomes active when you begin to see yourself as it is. Scripture says “as He is so are we in this world” but can you see it? What can you see?
You are being shown the pathway to prosperity or divine health through scriptures; the way to tap into it is to see yourself as being prosperous or living in divine health even if you are confined to a wheeled chair respectively. Philippians 4:19 says God will supply all your needs but the big question is, do you see Him doing that for you?
Conclusively, the pictures you are able to generate with and on your mind which is the architectural board of your life is your future and that not a distance away but your next minute experience. See well to live because what you see is who you are. Shalom!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
