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
We are not to fix our eyes on the negative situations and circumstances that we are surrounded by and confronted with. Negative situations come and go. Just as suddenly as a negative situation appears in our lives, it can go away. Just as suddenly as someone is diagnosed with an illness, they can be healed. Just as suddenly as a bank account has a zero balance, it can be replenished. We are to keep our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) despite what is going on around us. All negative situations are simply a distraction of the enemy to keep us focused on the wrong thing(s) and to take our eyes off of God. The enemy knows that if we keep our eyes on God and continue to speak God's Word out of our mouths then our situation HAS to change for the better. Continue to keep your eyes on God and don't fall prey to negative circumstances which are simply an illusion of the enemy.
