Visible and invisible
We humans can relate very well with the visible world. The Spiritual realm is a invisible. It becomes a great challenge to believe in something which is not visible to our eyes.
No body could believe that Earth is round and not flat. It is believed that pythagoras was the first person to propose that Earth is round. And now with scientific evidence we have no doubt that Earth round and it revolves around the Sun.
No one can prove or disprove the existence of God. We have only one choice, either believe it or reject it.
Living by sight
When a person who believes in God prays for some problem to get resolved and then he doubts. He chooses to believe only after he can see the visible results. This phenomenon is referred as walking by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7 NASBS
for we walk by faith, not by sight–
Then what is the opposite of this? The answer is believe God before he does His work. That is living by spiritual sight. Let me quote a scripture.
Mark 11:24 NASBS
Therefore I(Jesus) say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they will be granted you.
Live by faith
Jesus taught His disciples to believe that God has answered their prayers before answer arrives in reality. This is true faith in real sense. He said that such prayers will be answered.
So, we need our physical sight for day to day living. And To live a true victorious spiritual life we need spiritual sight. Which sight is predominant in your life? Please think about this.
May God enable us to have correct vision of the true meaning of, “living by faith and not by sight.”
May God bless you with these words.
