Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees.


At some point, each of us will face what seem to be mammoth trials and difficulties. This is why we must know how to respond to every threat by laying hold of the kind of victorious faith that looks beyond what we can see to what God sees.


In times of extreme pressure, God stretches our faith and deepens our dependence on Him. Without a strong, abiding faith, we can quickly yield to temptation and fear, especially when the trial or difficulty is intense or prolonged.


Whatever Goliath you face, you need to bury one truth deep within your heart: God loves you, and when you place your trust in Him, He will help you triumph. You may go through times of failure. Life may not always turn out the way you planned. But ultimately, God will be glorified, and you will be blessed.


Every challenge presents an opportunity for the Lord to display His faithfulness and love. Instead of yielding to thoughts of fear and failure, make a commitment to trust God, even when you don’t know what the next day will bring. Train yourself to look beyond what you can see to what He sees.


How can you gain that kind of faith?


Recall past victories.

Reject discouraging words.

Recognize the true nature of the battle.

Respond to the challenge with a positive confession.

Rely on the power of God.

Reckon the victory.

You can face any circumstance with confidence and hope because it’s not your strength, wisdom, energy, or power that brings victory. Triumph comes because of Christ’s ability. And when you place your trust in Him, you tap into an irresistible force that no one and nothing can successfully oppose.


“And Elisha prayed, and said, “ LORD, I pray, open his eyes that he may see.” Then the LORD opened the eyes of the young man, and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire all around Elisha.”

‭‭II Kings‬ ‭6:17‬ ‭
