“For we walk by faith, not by sight” 2 Corinthians 5:7
Walking by faith can help us “close” our physical eyes and see with our spiritual eyes to maintain our hope. In other words, living in agreement with our belief in God’s promises or plans for our lives
The Seeds In A Farmer’s Hands Are Manifested As Crops In His Mind Even Before He Sows Them Into The Soil
Having or exercising faith without tangible manifestations can be daunting, especially when people around do not share your faith or vision. It is easy for people to believe in you when you’re successful. That’s why it is important to remember those who believe in you while your potential is still only a seed.
Faith Requires A Positive Mindset
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” —Martin Luther King
A farmer plants a seed and hopes for harvest but is sustained by faith between the planting and harvesting. Through faith, we can see the potential in seeds waiting to be nurtured. Tend to your seed and see where it takes you. Keeping in mind that we all grow at a different pace and have different gifts and talents.
“That your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God” 1 Corinthians 2:5
Faith Works Even In Darkness
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.” Martin Luther King Jr.
Before a seed can grow it must disappear in the soil. Your growth spurts may be invisible to some but that does not mean you are not growing. Destiny requires transformation and a transformation is a process.
Abraham’s faith was proven when his hope was planted in the soil of disappointment. Our faith isn’t defined by our failings, it is revealed in our response to adversity. Hold on and wait patiently for the harvest. Thank you for reading and stay blessed.
