Don’t Look At The Outward Appearance

Don’t Look At

The Outward Appearance

 

 

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal

(2 Corinthians 4:17-18).

 

 

         An important characteristic of strong faith is that it doesn’t look at the outward appearance of things; it doesn’t consider physical circumstances. Jesus refused to consider the fact that Lazarus was dead, even though He had previously said that Lazarus’ sickness wouldn’t lead to death (John 11:4). That the man eventually died, and had been buried for four days didn’t make any difference to Jesus because his faith was focused on His Word. He knew the Father heard His faith-filled words.

 

         Now, watch what the Master did: He called Lazarus out from the grave, just as you’d call out someone sleeping in a room next to you. That’s faith. With faith, there’s no such thing as “hopeless” or “an impossible situation”. Nothing is impossible, because anything is possible! In the faith arena, you don’t give up.

 

       Men give up when they base their judgements and perceptions on sense evidence. For instance, man’s natural senses have been trained to say, “I have stomach pain,” just because he felt pain in the stomach. He’s been trained to recognize fear and say, “I’m scared”; he’s been trained to recognize lack and say, “I’m broke.” However, faith speaks in conformity with God’s Word. So, you may say, “I feel headaches, but I’m healed.” You must emphasize your healing and health. Never let your feelings control you or the circumstances of your life. What you feel must not control or dictate what you have or are in the Word.

 

       It makes no difference what you see, hear, or feel; it makes no difference how negative or impossible things may look in the natural; keep confessing the Word! The Word of faith in your mouth produces results. Therefore, refuse to consider circumstances or recognize impossibilities.

 

Confession

 

The wisdom of God is at work in me, and my faith is alive! My opinions, judgments, and responses are not according to what my natural senses can perceive, but according to the Word. My life is the daily expression of the Word of God, in the Name of Jesus.
