But the LORD said to Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart (1 Samuel 16:7).
In Genesis 15:5, God said to Abraham, “…Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be.” You’d notice that God was specific as to what He wanted Abraham to look at. He didn’t say to him, “Look up” or “Look around”; He said, “Look at the stars and see if you can number them.” Each time God tells you to look, He gives you what to look at, and usually, He wants you to see with the eyes of faith.
It doesn’t matter how people see you; what matters is how you see yourself: the perception and opinion you’ve formed of yourself, on the basis of what the Word says about you. See “you” with the eyes of God, and live what you see! Don’t look at things from the physical perspective, and form conclusions that are based on sensory perceptions. God doesn’t want you to live that way. He wants you to see from your spirit and make the right judgments.
Before the physical manifestation of the supernatural and glory of God in your life, you must see it first within you. Once you can see it with the eyes of faith, it’s yours. You must first have it within. For example, when God says to you, “I have granted your request,” don’t consider the surrounding situation anymore; see and receive it in the spirit first!
See and apprehend your prosperity, health, peace, progress, success, deliverance and the salvation of your friends and family members. Proclaim with your mouth that which you’ve already seen within you—not so they’ll come to pass—but because you know they already exist in the faith-realm.
If you want to have a fruitful walk with the Lord, you have to learn to see and receive with your spirit, and keep your focus on the Word.
