Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.”
Hebrews 11:11 KJV
Sarah received strength through faith. She counted it a done deal before she acted. Now she acted because God’s will through His Word was made known to her.
Faith only begins where the will of God is known. And the will of God is our way out from our present circumstances into the future that God has for us.
Also, for her to be pregnant she saw herself pregnant before she got pregnant because the Word of God is the image of God. For us to act on anything spoken to us by the Lord we must first see it.
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.”
Hebrews 11:13 KJV
The Bible says “……. but having seen them afar off….”
That means they were willing to die or endure and put into action what they heard . Due to the fact that the Word spoken to them gave them an image in their spirit and minds eye of what God have for them.
I pray this morning that your eye be open to see and also that you won’t limit God by not seeing in His Word His expectation of you in Jesus name.
My question this morning what do you see from God’s spoken word to you? . If you can’t see it, you will never act on it or receive it.
Let’s pray together:
Heavenly Father thank You for Your Word. Help me by Your Spirit to see in Your Word what you have for me in Jesus name. Amen.
