We’ve heard seeing is believing, but what if we don’t see it? Then we need to believe.
This past week I’ve spoken to those who feel they are in hopeless situations and need to see beyond what they’re seeing. . . the hopeless situation.
The Bible says faith is the evidence of things not seen.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1).
How about when faith is not believing something in spite of the evidence . . . the things in our face. The diagnosis of no hope, the broken marriage that appears irreconcilable, the prodigal too far away . . . the 3-D circumstances that block our view of a life-changing God.
It’s in these times we must learn to see past the view.
I think of what the Lord allowed me to see before I saw it, while looking at the impossible times of life with a faith-eye, seeing the things I couldn’t see at the time. The big things man calls impossible and God doesn’t agree.
So, where does faith come from?
Faith comes from hearing, and hearing comes from the word of God. Romans 10:17.
In the eleventh chapter of Hebrews we read of the faith-greats and how old wombs were opened and lions mouths were closed. Walls fell down and seas parted. The big things man calls impossible and God doesn’t agree.
Years ago I had no faith when God unexpectedly interrupted my world with His kingdom. My “me of little faith” became stronger and more perfected through time, trouble, and truth. Faith fostered “in the waiting room” of unexplainable circumstances.
We can’t explain a sovereign God. If we could He’d be no bigger than our brain.
Faith defies logic.
Why does man reason? Maybe we think we’re bigger than God and we can figure it out.
I wonder if God giggles.
I read ancient words written thousands of years ago describing our current events and see the ancient coming true. Of course, I believe.
. . . . so, seeing is believing . . . .
Faith is believing in things when common sense tells you not to . . . George Seaton
