Believing is Seeing, but Seeing is not Believing. There is a familiar saying, “Seeing is believing,” but in spiritual matters that is not necessarily true. Sometimes skeptics will say, “Show me a miracle and I’ll believe.” But even if they saw a genuine miracle, they’d still doubt it or look for a naturalistic explanation and find other reasons to continue in their unbelief.
Jesus spoke about His death and being raised from the dead. Now as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside and said to them, “We are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be betrayed to the chief priests and the teachers of the law. They will condemn Him to death and will turn Him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and flogged and crucified.”
Jesus spoke about His rising from the dead. Pointer: this was done for you. Accept Jesus’ gift and live forever with Christ, Amen.
In the story above; the disciples saw only the lack of food and of money, but they forgot the power of God. They had seen so many miracles done by Jesus, and yet, they still did not sense the opportunity for God’s glory that lay before them. They forgot that “Little is much, if God is in it. “
And we pray:
Teach us, Lord, to believe in Your power and not to despair over our present circumstances. We know You can do great things with very little or nothing at all. You, The Word Created ALL things blessed. We cast our minds on the Universe, You are beyond AWESOME Lord, Amen. We know you delight to work with what is weak, that Your strength might be glorified. Amen.
