John 20:29: “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

In the midst of grief and fear, a small group of people hid behind locked doors. Unseen enemies lurked in the darkness awaiting the opportunity to sow seeds of doubt. One seed of doubt can weaken the focus of an uncertain heart, and since things did not happen the way Thomas expected, his heart was fertile ground.

The disciples were overjoyed when Jesus appeared. But, Thomas, who was not present when Jesus came, refused to believe the truth. He proclaimed, "Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe it."

One week later, Jesus returned to visit his doubting disciple. This time, Thomas was present, and Jesus spoke directly to him. "Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe." Jesus knew how to alleviate Thomas’ unbelief and chose to reveal Himself in a way that Thomas could understand.

Only God can move us from unbelief to faith. Unlike Thomas, we haven’t seen Jesus with our own eyes, nor have we touched his wounds. But, as promised, there is a blessing for those who believe without seeing. We walk by faith and not by sight, trusting the Lord will reveal himself to us in ways we can understand.
