"I only trust what I can see with my own eyes."
Have you ever heard anyone say something like that? Every day we live our lives believing in things that we’ve never seen, believing in places that we’ve never been. I’ve never been to the North Pole, but I’ve heard other people say that they have been there, they can describe it and even bring back pictures ostensibly showing us what the North Pole looks like. It is easy to believe people when we have that kind of evidence.
I can’t see oxygen but I believe the scientist that tells me that’s what I breathe in every day and that’s what helps keep me alive. I also believe in God and I haven’t seen Him. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
I look at flowers in my back yard and stand amazed at the fragrance, intricacy and beauty. Or see a flock of birds flying overhead and know they are going south for the winter. Or when I look in my grandson’s eyes when we’re at the zoo and think is it all just luck? It just can’t be. Someone has to be in charge of this creation. Everything fits together so well here on this Earth. There is a flow; a rhythm to our lives that lets me know someone greater is in charge.
Sure, nature takes its course and things happen out of our control (Fires, earthquakes, floods, etc.), but God expects us to look after each other and to be smart as we go about our daily lives. He is also there to help us, guide us, and protect us and He does. (1 John 4:12) “No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and His love is perfected in us”.
