Believing is not always Seeing



“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

Hebrews 11:1 NKJV


We base our belief often on the things that we can see, the things that we can prove. But it doesn’t take much to believe in the things that I can see, that human eye can look upon. What does increase my faith is when I cannot see something, and I cannot explain something, but yet there is evidence that it exist. I can’t see the wind, but I can feel it and I can see the leaves or dirt move because of the wind. I have never seen a billion dollars but others have and yet I believe what they say because they have seen it.

I don’t have to see Jesus in order to believe in Him. I know when I feel the Holy Spirit come in a room, the atmosphere changes. I can see when hearts and lives are being changed because of Jesus, because the countenance of the person changes. I believe the report of others who have gone before me, the report of the disciples, who saw Jesus, who ate with him, who did life with him. The same ones who saw him crucified and also so saw him resurrected.

Even more I believe the words of the Lord, not just because I see them written on a sheet of paper, but because I see them being fulfilled by people who do not even know him. Who will you choose to believe in today, the one that the winds and waves obey, or the one who only knows how to talk about the winds and waves?
