Believing Is Seeing

You might have seen the title of this post and thought ; isn’t it the other way around. But if you really think about it, we believe without seeing every single day. Even though we may see a news report, we did not actually witness the event. We listen to the gossip others and believe their words to be fact.

However, when it come to believing that God is God, and that the Bible Is Holy and true, many people struggle.

Why is it that we have a much harder time believing in God, than we do a story on the news? The answer is doubt. Doubt is an incredibly powerful weapon that the devil uses to attack the minds of those whose faith is weakened due to struggles in life, feeling distanced from God, or who have never truly known the Savior.

But faith has never been something we can see. There is no visual evidence. The official definition of Faith is a “firm belief in something of which there is no proof.” Faith requires that we believe despite not having visual evidence. If seeing were believing, than Faith would be irrelevant and unnecessary.

Hebrews 11:1 tells us that “ Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

We can’t see God, but we can His presence in our lives if we believe. We can’t see God, but we can see His power working within us. When we choose to believe, then we see.

If you have been doubting God’s existence because you can not see His activity in your life, pray for His divine intervention. Pray for Him to saturate your life so powerfully that you cannot doubt that He is at work.

It seems that more people today have their faith in the root of humanism. This faith is based on an interest in human affairs at the human scale. The faith of man, they have faith in material possessions. Don’t let your faith be in something you may lose. The earth will fall away and materiel things will rot away.
