Hebrews 11:1-3
[1] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good report. [3] 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.

John 1:3
[3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

1828 Webster’s Dictionary uses scripture to define words. It defines the word “universe” as all that God has created. It is made of two words, “uni” meaning one, and “verse” meaning word.  God used the power of faith, contained in His Word,  to frame, or put together, the universe.  Romans 1 tells us that God reveals himself through His creation.

God is glorified in His finished work.

God is glorified in the manifestation of His Word.

Hebrews 1:1-3
[1] God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, [2] Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; [3] Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

Take time to pause, to cease and celebrate all the ways that God has manifested His Word in your life. Take inventory of your life and give God Glory!!!

There is enough faith in God’s Word to bring itself to manifestation.

Romans 10:17
Romans 10:8
Isaiah 55:11

Joshua 6:1-3
[1] Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went tout, and none came in. [2] And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. [3] And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.

See and envision what God has said.

Joshua 6:4-10
[4] And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. [5] And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. [6] And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark of the Lord . [7] And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the Lord . [8] And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams’ horns passed on before the Lord , and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them. [9] And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. [10] And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.

Joshua 6:14-16
[14] And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days. [15] And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times. [16] And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.

You will see what God said!!!

Matthew 17:1-4
[1] And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, [2] And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light. [3] And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. [4] Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias.

Jesus took them apart and was transfigured. They saw Jesus in a way they had never seen Him before, because they were willing to take time away to spend with Him. Jesus wants to  reveal Himself to us in a way we’ve never seen Him before, but we have to be willing to set time apart for Him.
