GOD'S PILL: CAPSULE 11

WHAT IS YOUR REALITY? (See Capsule 10)

Through faith we understand
 that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. (Hebrews 11:3 KJV)

From the capsule 10 a ready question and common reaction is 'How can I act well when I'm feeling sick, let's be real'?

Well, the question is what is your reality? If what you can see is all of your reality, then the totality of your reality is in the physical and you are losing out big time. Sure the physical is real and exist but there is a more important reality that you cannot see, and this second reality trumps the physical reality. In fact it is the parent of the physical reality, will outlast it and can also change it.

See Heb:11:3 amongst other things, it says the things that we see are not made from things which do appear. (Because you cannot see it does not mean it does not exist). Meaning the physical comes from the spiritual. But the spiritual you cannot feel, touch, taste, smell or see with the physical eyes. You can only see through the word of God which is the mirror of the spirit (James 1:25)

So whenever there is a clash between the two realities, you need to choose. If you chose the physical i.e. what you can feel, see, smell, touch or taste then you are stuck. It all depends on what you focus on, so chose the greater reality and see things change.

For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day (2 Corinthians 4:16 KVJ)

or

That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day (2 Corinthians 4:16 NLT)

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV)

Wow!!! Can you see that? The reason we should never give in is because the physical is temporary but the spiritual is eternal. Feelings come and go, but the spiritual remains constant (renewed every day).

CONCLUSION

DON'T BE STUCK IN THE PHYSICAL REACH FOR THE SPIRITUAL


Ps: Capsule 12 will harmonise 10 and 11, don't miss it.
