And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. – Romans 4:19 (NKJV)
When you’re facing something truly difficult, it can be hard to see anything but your circumstances. Maybe you see a lack of money to go on a missions trip, or you see a lack of friends and feel like it will always be this way and nothing will ever change.
Sometimes we see our circumstances and they become more real to you than what God’s Word says. And that’s only natural. We’re used to using our senses to tell us reality. Sometimes, however, you need to turn your senses off so to speak.
Instead of looking at your lack of money to go on a mission trip, you need to look to God as your source. Instead of seeing not enough friends, you need to choose to see God as more than enough.
Today’s Truth: Faith Over What You See
If you’ll determine to not consider your circumstances greater than your God, you like Abraham in today’s verse will see God’s provision in your life. You’ve got to say no to what you see and yes to what God says. You’ve got to believe by faith over what you can see. As you do that, you’ll see God come through for you. He’ll provide you everything that you need to be victorious in life!
