Are you limited by the "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality? I purposely said limited because if God is going to do the impossible in your life, you need to believe past what you can see. Having faith in what you see is belief based on experience. True, Biblical faith is believing when you can't see it.
II Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith [we regulate our lives and conduct ourselves by our conviction or belief respecting man's relationship to God and divine things, with trust and holy fervor; thus we walk] not by sight or appearance.
II Corinthians 4:18
Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.
In order to function in God's system, we need to change what we base our beliefs on. Many things that we see right now are temporary. That means that they are subject to change. Why would we want to put our faith and trust in something that is probably going to change? That isn't a very steady foundation. This is why God tells us to put our faith in the unseen because that is eternal. The unseen are the promises in the Bible that we don't see with our physical eyes yet. However, we know that they will manifest at some time because God's Word is eternal and what He said will come to pass. We need to soak in God's Word so that they become revelation knowledge to us. This unwavering faith will cause us to say "I walk by faith and not by sight" and will allow us to receive all the blessings that God has in store for us!
