2 Corinthians 4:18
While we look not at things that are seen but the things that are not seen, for the things that are seen are temporary but the things that are not seen are eternal.
So there are things that are not seen but we can choose to look at them and it has got to be by faith for there is no other way.
Col 3: 1-2
If then you have a new life with Christ, give your attention to things in heaven where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Keep your mind on higher things, not on things on this earth. Set your mind on things above (it doesn’t mean things that are up rather, transcendent things, higher things and not lesser things). Set your minds on the higher version and dimension of things; for example immortality is higher than death. Therefore, it is a higher thing for me and it’s a thing that is above, where Christ is – a thing that is in the present realm of Christ. If I look in the realm of Christ, I would not see death for it is not in the present realm of Christ so why should I set my mind on death? Where Christ is seated there is eternal life there but there must be a conscious mind set and intentionality.
It is in your power to determine the level of spirituality you function in.
Do you know how powerful our minds are? They are powerful gates that can lock down and open dimension to us. It has the power to believe and if you disbelieve anything, that thing dies; it ceases to exist to you. The mind does not have the power to distinguish between what is truth and lie it cannot discriminate. If you tell yourself that you are a failure, a looser, nothing would come out of your life the mind would believe it, take it and act on it and immediately, the reality begins to unfold. Also, if you tell yourself that you are unstoppable, or that you are too blessed, that all things are working for your favor and you believe that inside of you, and walk out into the world like with that consciousness, you would be shocked that everything begins to work for you because the mind gate is a powerful gate.
Our mind utilizes belief and willingness to either allow or disallow the Spirit realm from flowing into our environment. The doctrine forms belief inside of you and because of that you welcome a new thing. Another thing is that you can have knowledge of it but you are not willing, you don’t want it so your will can disallow and lock it out. Jesus says, “How I wish to gather you together like a hen gathers her chick but you are not willing.” Therefore, the will is what hinders that from coming to you.
Some people lack willingness for the Spirit realm; they are just not interested. It’s not an issue of their belief neither is it ignorance; they are totally offended with the line of thought. They don’t want to hear it, they are just not willing. So you see the mind utilizes both the will & willingness either to disallow or to allow the realm of the Spirit. It is your place to feed your mind with your truth so that it can allow you to access that which has been your inheritance before time began.
