“…blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29).
There is a famous adage which goes like this, “Seeing is believing”. It is true for some people but it is 100% against biblical principles. Look at what Jesus told Thomas, “Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed”. Trying always as a believer to understand spiritual things on a human level, believe only things that are tangible to the five senses can stop you from receiving what God wants you to accept based on His Word. God is asking us to believe in His Word and not what we think or feel. It is a wonderful thing to see before we can believe but beyond this is an arena God desires us to live. Abraham believed God’s promise of a son at his old age. Noah began building the ark when he hadn’t even seen a drop of water on the ground. They believed having not seen the promise. That’s faith at its peak. Believe and you’ll see.
Pray that the body of Christ will walk by faith, not by sight.
