August 6,2020 substance

Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

When I look around, everyone I know is in an impossible situation. Is it just me, or is everything so very heavy right now? Schools are trying to decide whether or not to do school, and how. Six months ago who would’ve thought that would ever be an issue? Scene after scene, home after home, job after job (or, unemployment after unemployment), decision after decision – all just heavy.

Every night I pray for God to give me something specific to share. Sometimes it is through these posts, sometimes it is for someone specific, and sometimes my brain and my heart go to war just long enough to not finish – not pretty – part of being flesh-y (ugh).

But, not today. Today the share came loud and clear.

You need to know and I need this to sink into my bones – in every possible way, Heaven is watching everything about you/me.

God is watching you/me to see what you are going to do with this situation. This is His call:

Hold on to your faith.

Hold on to your faith.

Your faith is the pipeline that God is using to bring your answer from heaven to earth.

It is the most important thing there is right now.

Faith.

And, when you come through this trial not only will the crisis you are dealing with be different and changed, YOU are going to be different and changed, too.

The book of James tells you and me:

“..for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing…

when you ask Him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.” James 1:4, 6 NLT

and, this one is for you –

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1 KJV

Satan would have us believe that if we can’t see it, then it is not real. Here, faith/hope IS substance.

Substance.

Real.

From hope comes real tangible substance.

Hope away.

Hope enormous.

Hope the impossible.

One day we will understand fully, that we have had it backward all this time – because the things of the Spirit realm are real and the things of the earthly realm are puffs of smoke.

Close your eyes and hope. See your impossible situation, your impossible person as changed, see them in the spirit.

As whole.

As laughing.

As free.

The way God sees.

Look at your problem.

Is it finances? You don’t know how you will make your next payment? Your car is broken down? You need new tires? You had to pick up your drunk spouse at a bar last night? Your child is hanging out with undesirables? You found a knot on your neck?

Close your eyes and let the Spirit consume you. Add hope.

You have the faith to see God is going to make a way where there is no way.

Is it your health? Are you sick? Are the doctors giving bad reports?

Close your eyes and hear what the God of the Universe has to say about it.

That is faith.

That is holding on to substance.

It is evidence.

God is simply telling you that what you see in the Spirit is more real than what you see in the natural.

Hold on to your faith.

Hold on to your faith.

The enemy wants you to quit.

An ounce of your faith will blow the enemy away.

Wake up.

Hope.

Go.
