“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”
March 16, 2022
There is an invisible world. There is a world that is more real than this world, and all the heroes of the faith were people who could see the invisible. Most of us only see what is before us—our cars, our houses, our jobs. We never get a vision. We never look upward. We never look onward. But even in the material world, the people who make a mark—the explorers, the novelists, the artists, the creators, inventors—all of these have the ability to see the invisible. Before I ever preached in this pulpit, I would come out here when it was sheer dirt and stand up here and preach. I know that may sound funny to you, but God put a dream in my heart of what the future would look like.
Faith begins with a vision. Faith is setting your affection on something that is bigger than what most of us are living for. God wants to give each of us that vision if we will look to Him.
Make a list of your goals in life, both short- and long-term. Consider if these things are aligned with seeking God’s vision for your life.
