Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him: for he that cometh to God MUST BELIEVE THAT HE IS, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” The first principle of faith is believing God is or believing in Someone you cannot see. It is believing something invisible (God) exists or is. Do you mean to tell me I have to believe in Someone I cannot see or that an invisible God exists? Yes, we MUST believe the invisible unseen God is or exists. Faith that pleases God starts with believing in Someone you cannot see.
Not only does God exist (or is) out there, but so does other spiritual blessings. Everything about our redemption existed in the unseen realm before we received it. It was in the spiritual heavenly realm and unseen at first. Ephesians 1:3 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who HATH blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.” They are spiritual blessings in heavenly places or of heavenly things not for when we get to heaven but to tell us they are invisible and unseen. They are unseen as a supply or provision of God’s grace. Salvation, healing, deliverance, blessing, forgiveness… all exist somewhere before anyone receives them. They are as 1 Corinthians 2:9, 10 describes as, “But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.” We don’t have to go up to heaven to get them but God has given us faith to receive them here. It is faith that receives the spiritual provisions and makes them manifest (visible) in the visible world.
We are instructed to not look at seen things but to look at unseen things in 2 Corinthians 4:18 which says, “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” Our faith (what we believe and speak) is based on the Word of God that unveils to us what exists, or “is” already in existence as a provision of God’s grace in the unseen eternal realm. Our faith doesn’t create the provision but rather it receives the provisions already created by the work of Christ in redemption that are already there and are rightfully ours because of what Jesus did. Now that’s amazing grace and thank God we have been given the measure of faith to receive it.
