Don’t Be A Realist

7 May

Don’t Be A Realist…

God says to love your enemies. How do you love your enemies? If they are your enemy, you don’t love them. If you love them, then they are not really your enemy. They’re your enemy for the reason that the relationship is not characterized by love.

It’s not realistic to expect us to love our enemies. But God is not realistic. He said, let there be light, when there was no light and then there was light.

If Abraham was a realist, he wouldn’t have believed in God. If Moses were a realist, he wouldn’t have left Egypt. If David were a realist, he never would have slain Goliath. If Peter was a realist, he never would have walked on water.

Don’t go by reality my friend, go by God. Don’t go by your situation or your circumstance, your past or your problem, that’s only reality. But God is God. Believe what you do not see.

Treat that which is not, as if it were, and that which is, as if it were not, because God is not a realist, nor are His people. He is the One who makes things real.

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11:1-3

Don’t be bound by the reality of the situation, live by faith, believe before seeing, overcome the world.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
