We Believe By Faith, Despite What We Cannot See

By faith we believe in what we cannot see.

By faith we believe in what we cannot see.

I read a cartoon recently that made a joke about an invisible magic man in the sky. There was a time when I would have taken offense at that. God is not a joke. But I had to stop and consider it. He is invisible. He does perform wonders we can’t. His throne is in the heavens. That’s all true. But that’s just it, it is true.

Jesus said, Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed. (Jhn 20:29) Faith is all about believing in what we can’t touch, smell, or see. It is believing in something invisible. If we could touch, smell, or see it, there wouldn’t be any faith involved. But blessed are those who believe.

God is pleased with our faith. But when you have the presence of God in you, faith is not hard. You hear Him in your heart. You see Him in action. You are blessed in ways only God could do for you.

I am not angry with joke writers who don’t understand God. If you have not met Him and received Him in your heart, you have no basis for understanding Him. But to those of us who do, He is life and love, forever.
