Believing is Seeing!
When the disciples saw Jesus after his resurrection, they believed. But Thomas, who was absent, doubted until he, too, got to see and even touch Jesus. For him, as the others, seeing was believing.
But what of us who don’t get to see Jesus in the flesh? If “seeing is believing,” are we out of luck? No. In fact, sometimes it works the opposite way; sometimes “believing is seeing.”
Try this: Despite any doubts, choose to believe, trusting the witness of someone who’s seen God at work — a biblical figure or present-day Christian. You’ll be amazed at the love, healing, peace and new life that spring out of troubles. “With the eyes of your heart” (Ephesians 1:18, NRSV), you will see your Lord and your God.
