Moving From Survival to Kingdom Living

Part 3-To See It Believe It. Don’t See It To Believe It.

 

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. 

Hebrews 11:1

“Have faith in God,” Jesus answered.  “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Mark 11:22-24

Our natural tendency is the five senses are king.  If we can see it…taste it…touch it …hear it … smell it, then this determines our reality.  This is the framework for life. This is belief.  The inbred will to survive demands it.  We want proof.  If we have proof, then the realm of our survival has known and understood boarders.  We can be confident in what resources, dangers and threats await us.

This view of the world is deceptive.  It promises security, but in the end it places limits on true life, and never enhances it. This paradigm is based on there being limited resources.  It rejects all resources that are not within hands reach-especially spiritual resources.   The atheist says, “I have never seen God, therefore I do not believe, therefore He is not a resource I can trust.”  The doubter says, “I have never seen a major miracle, therefore I don’t believe in miracles, therefore I should never do anything in which I need a miracle.”  The disappointed Christian says, “I have prayed and not received the answer I wanted, therefore prayer is useless, and not helpful for life.” This subconscious mindset operates on the premise of a lack of resources.  It’s trapped in survival foraging.

Yet belief opens our eyes to resources that we have not previously observed: spiritual power, spiritual realities, processes of doing things, human potential, etc. Seeing these resources and then acting on them, actually enforces belief and makes it relevant to life.  Unbelief is very limiting.  It places a lid on human potential.  No matter how great the achievements of mankind without faith, they never fully reach their full potential.

A faithless state of mind is dead weight on personal growth  because when one only believes what they have a personal reference for it makes them, at best unteachable, and at worse, hopelessly ignorant.  Unbelief limits ones horizons by limiting the tools, reference points and resources that are available to make life work and to make the impossible possible.

So we must spin our minds around the reality that belief leads to true life. The kingdom of God is not a resource-based Kingdom.  It is a creation-based Kingdom.  If you can think of it, then you can create it.  Belief is the conduit that connects one to creative power.  This works practically, naturally, and in the spiritual realm.  If you can imagine it, then it can be done.  There is no cure for cancer, but we can imagine life with one, therefore it will be invented.  There are no flying cars, but it is just a matter of time before they start flying off the lot.  Every creation, cure, invention and solution started with an idea and the belief that the idea would become reality.

This limited mindset that has come into our society that says, “There is only one pie and everyone gets a slice of the pie,” is a lie of unbelief that chains the potential of society.  “If I have a big piece, then you have a little piece,” creates a small world with small ideas.  Yet when one connects with creative power, then they understand they are a pie factory.  Life is not limited to one pie, and society certainly is not limited to one pie.  We are pie factories.  Connect to creative power and produce pies that have never been imagined before.  You can make more pies.  There are unlimited resources, we just have to discover where those resources are.

To see it, one must believe it. Faith connects you to spiritual power.  Faith releases the floodgates of the power of the kingdom of God into ones life.  This power can release miracles.  It can open blind eyes, heal the sick, displace evil, raise the dead, find cures, create inventions, produce solutions, raise societies, and enhance culture.  If you believe it, then you can see it with your own eyes.  If you have to see it to believe it, then this idea will become the limiting factor in your life.
