This is an encouragement for when you feel hopeless.
Christ so kindly encouraged me recently when I was feeling doubtful about some of the things I was believing God for. It was a moment where I just felt low, I felt like “would my prayer ever be answered?” Then God in his infinite ability to know the exact word you need at every moment, led me to Hebrews 11.
Now faith brings our hopes into reality and becomes the foundation needed to acquire the things we long for. It is all the evidence required to prove what is still unseen.
Hebrews 11: 13
But they saw beyond the horizon the fulfilment of their promises and gladly embraced it from afar. They all lived their lives on earth as those who belonged to another realm
As I read this scripture God placed these 3 truths in my heart:-
1. God is not limited by this realm
When the scripture speaks of seeing beyond the horizon it is speaking of a world that lives beyond our earthly limitation. God is the God of the impossible, in Him all things are possible, where He lives there are no limitations and the supernatural is a way of life. This gave me MASSIVE hope, I came alive with faith because I remembered that God is not from this realm, He will go all out to ensure that every promise is fulfilled for His children. In my human thinking I was trying to work out how my prayers could get answered and because it seemed illogical, it made me feel hopeless.
Please understand that believers of Christ Jesus need not think in terms of logic, because we can look into another realm, that is the heavenly realm where there is no limit and all things are possible. Let this awaken your faith, believe with all your heart that Jesus will do what he has promised.
2. Think from a higher mind set
The believers in Hebrews lived life on Earth as those that belonged to another realm. This simply meant that they understood their true citizenship was in Heaven, so they lived and thought according to this revelation. They believed for things that seemed hopeless from an earthly perspective. When you change your mindset to a higher, heavenly frequency, you begin to live and act from that higher way of thinking. Therefore, you embrace the things you are hoping for, you live expectant and excited because you understand that the God of the Heavens and earth is with you. You make big plans, big moves and big dreams because you are now thinking according to the heavenly, higher realm where your spirit is from. It’s important that we cultivate a lifestyle where we are thinking from this spiritual higher reality. I believe as we do this our faith will truly arise and our whole world will change.
3. Faith is the evidence that you can receive what seems “hopeless”
The human mind is fascinating to me, because it holds our eternal soul. Our mind can create all kinds of profound imaginations. When God gives you a dream, he gives you an image in your mind that empowers you, this is our hope. This hopeful image gives us faith in our spirit. This faith is almost like a material substance or an energy that moves us to stay joyful, expectant and to move into the thing we are hoping for. As God awakens your soul to get hopeful, he lavishes you with imagery that stay in the eternal store house of your mind.
Get really focused on these thoughts and use your faith to ensure they materialise. Keep speaking life to these hopes, keep confessing the promises of God. These are all acts of faith and they are all evidences that what you are hoping for will come into reality in the fullness of time.
