Topic: Faith Not Sight

Opening Scripture: Matthew 9:24

” He said to them, make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping”. And they laughed Him to scorn”.
What makes the work of faith different from the work of the world is in the face of situations,faith sees the end but the world see’s the present, faith does not judge by the physical eyes, faith judges based on God’s word, that’s why 2 Corinthians 5:7 makes us understand that -“for we walk by faith, not by sight”. If you want to work with faith and have your eyes do the judging, then your faith won’t produce result.
Our opening scripture paints a clear example for us; Jesus came in contact with a dead girl, she was confirmed dead, mourning had commenced for this child, but when Jesus got to the scene and he said otherwise he was working by faith, He said “Make room, for the girl is not dead, but sleeping”. This amazed the people around Him, and what was their response? they laughed Him to scorn. Most at times when we work in faith those around us, may laugh at us, they make mockery of our action like they did to Jesus, but what their opinion doesn’t count; Jesus didn’t pay attention to their mockery, He went ahead and did what He was supposed do. Verse 25 of matthew 9 tells us-” but when the crowd was put outside, He went and took her by the hand and the girl rose”.
Those who laughed could not laugh any longer,it’s my prayer that those who mock you for your faith in God will see God’s goodness in your life. Keep up the faith, ignore whatever it is that’s trying to take you out. Psalm 34:5-“they look at Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed”. You won’t know shame as long as you keep up the faith. Remain Blessed.

Lesson for the day- as long as you keep up the faith God would definitely show up.
