Would you buy a house sight unseen? Probably not. On the other hand, have things or people always been as they appear? Most likely no. So why is seeing so important? Why is one state, I traveled through today, called the “Show me state”? We put so much infaces on seeing before believing, that when it comes to God we want the same thing.
I asked a coworker some years ago this question, “What would it take for you to believe God was real?” He thought long and hard and finally could not give me an answer. Possibly in his mind anything God would do for him, would still trigger doubt, and disbelief. Knowing how He made us, I think that is why God asks us to accept Him by “faith”. Faith, is the substance of things hoped for, and the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1)
It can be difficult, somethimes, to believe in God. Especially when life is tough, but given the chance, and time God has proven Himself to me over and over. He also promises to prepare a home for me in heaven. I’ll accept that home, “sight unseen”!
