We did not see

29 Jan

Yes, we did not see Your miracles during Your time on earth, we did not see the nails pierce through Your body, we did not see You crucified on that Cross, we did not see the empty tomb or see Your Spirit ascend to Heaven. But over two thousand years have passed and look at what Your life, death and resurrection have done to this world. You have changed generations and nations through the power of the Gospel. The debt has been paid and we are freed from our bondage to sin and death. Yet we rely too much on what we can see. We see this world and all that is wrong…we see the problems. Help us to not fall into the trap of dragging through life with no joy, no enthusiasm, thinking nothing good is happening. We need to believe that right now God is working in our lives, that right now God is arranging things in our favor, that right now God is fighting our battles. We need to know that even in the darkest times of this life, that we are always blessed by the One who first loved us. Just because we don’t always see You with our eyes doesn’t mean that You aren’t working in our lives. Help us to trust in You and to grow our faith in Christ.
