WHAT YOU SEE YOU CAN POSSESS

TEXT: GENESIS 13:14-15
“The lord said unto Abram after Lot had parted from him, lift up your eyes from where you are and look North and South, East and West. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring."
God called Abram and told him to look 

around that whatever he saw would be given to him and his offspring, this is so because you can only lay claim on what you can see. God was able to see beyond all He told Abram to look at, but He promised to bless Abram base on what he could see. God will only bless you with what you can see be it spiritually or physically. He will not do for you what you ought to do. God is all knowing, yet He wants us to exercise our faith to see beyond our problems. The scripture says God calls the thing that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17). We are His children; we can also exercise that power by calling our breakthrough into existence, by looking beyond our present limitation through the eyes of faith, and start to picture ourselves in our God ordained place of destiny.
The scripture says in Proverbs 23:7 that as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. If you see yourself as a failure, that is what will happen. If you see yourself that you cannot do anything right, you will not be able to do it. But if by faith you see better days ahead in your future, things will continue to work for your good.
When God told Moses to send some men to explore the land of Canaan, they all came back with negative report that they cannot attack the people because they are like grasshopper in their eyes and in the eyes of the people. It was only Caleb that saw through the eyes of faith! “Then Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, “We should go up and take possession of the land, FOR WE CAN CERTAINLY DO IT” (Numbers 13:30). The principle of what you see you can possess is applicable in our daily lives, if something is hidden far from where your eyes can see, there is no way you can touch or take it due to the fact that it is not visible to you. In this New Year, see beyond your doubt and limitations and begin to see ALL the good promises of God coming to pass in your life. God does not lie, He does not fail promises, all you need to do is to believe and have faith in Him. Things may be rough and though, but keep confessing positively, see not the problem and failure but the wonders of His glory that will be evident in your life.
When the lord Asked Jeremiah what he saw in Jeremiah 1:11-12, he replied God that he saw an Almond tree, and the Lord said he had seen well. God continued by saying “FOR I WILL HASTEN MY WORD TO PERFORM IT” (Jeremiah 1:12). If you want God to hasten His word to perform it in your life, you need to be seeing MIRACLES instead of OBSTACLES because it is what you see that you will possess.
