So, I remember when Bishop J.Drew Sheard Said “you gotta see it before you see it or you never will see it” just like many other people remember. So I started praying and saying that I can see what I wanted to be my blessing. But many times I would never get what I “SAW”. For a while I had been wondering why this was happening. So im walking home from the store and this just popped in my mind.
so found in matthew 6:9-13 is the lord prayer
Our Father who art in heaven,hallowed be thy name.Thy kingdom come.Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread,and forgive us our trespasses,as we forgive those who trespass against us,and lead us not into temptation,but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom,and the power, and the glory,for ever and ever.Amen.
~I want to place a special emphasis on the part that says Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.~
Now is when we get into seeing something ~VS~ Imagining something
To see is defined as to perceive with the eyes; look at
When looking up the definition for imagine, the first meaning given is to form a mental image of something not actually present to the senses
The definition of imagine tells us that the image may be seen but the thing is not there, like a mirage.
First and foremost, when he said “you gotta see it, before you see it, or you never will see it” you have to be able to see with your spiritual eyes. In other words you have to see things through the holy spirit which is part of the trinity (God the father, God the son, and God the holy spirit). Which means you have to see What God has for you. So how can you see what God has for you if you are not in touch with the holy spirit. This is why I was so confused as to why I wasn’t getting some of the things I was asking and believing for, Because I was imagining something that’s not there, that God doesn’t have for me. I wasn’t seeing with a spiritual eye. I was out of tune with the holy spirit. I say this to say that there are blessings God has for us that are already in heaven, but we have to start wanting what he wants and seeing what he has and his will for us, not just imagining what we want!
