#Seeingisbelieving

Sometimes as Christians we might feel we don’t believe enough, or maybe you’re not even a christian because heck you can’t even see God to believe in him. As a christian I want to say you are not alone. But know that seeing isn’t always believing because we can see and still have little faith. So “Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 4:2 as this is the only way to not waver in faith, the only way to truly continue to believe and this does not require having to see God or our Saviour; Christ Jesus. Who I love and who loves you!

Have you ever said you will believe when you see God? Thomas wouldn’t believe Jesus was resurrected, instead he said “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.” John 20:25 and when Thomas sees Jesus He believes; “Then Jesus told him, Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” John 20:29.

So does seeing always make us believe?

The answer is NO.
How do I know? because in the bible Peter sees Jesus and has his focus on Jesus… “Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.” Matthew 14:29
… but even though peter can see Him he still doubts and this doubt causes him to lose his stability over the water and he begins to sink “But when he saw the wind, he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord, save me!”
Note what Jesus says to him next:
“You of little faith,”
See peter could see Jesus yet he still lost faith, you don’t need to see God to believe in him so don’t be like Thomas and not believe until you see, as even then you might still not believe.

Remember this verse:
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong” 1 Corinthians 16:13
Don’t wait on God, just believe… and if you do believe then stay strong in your faith and grow to know God because then you will feel his presence and just as He will not leave you, nor will you leave Him.
