Faith Without Signs

It is more blessed to believe and have not seen then to see then believe!

I have for so long been a person that was of the mindset show me then I will believe.

That’s not how God works. Even at salvation it is about trusting the finished works of the cross that to me were unseen.

I could say I was like doubting Thomas alot. Thomas didn’t believe Jesus had visited them while he was away from the room. He said I want to see Him. I want to put my hand in his side and in the places on His wrist.

Jesus then appeard before them again in the room and Thomas was there and Jesus knowing his heart said Thomas here am I put your hands in my side and out your fingers in the places on my wrists so that you may believe.

So Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you simply will not believe.”
John 4:48 NASB

Jesus knows our hearts so well he knows when we are in doubt, unbelief, fear, etc as to why at times He wants us to just truat Him. Hebrews 11:1 says that faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.

Faith is to produce substance and evidence in our life! The substance is character, integrity, fruit of the spirit. The evidence will be the mamifestation of Gods goodness as we grow in Him.

I have had to grow to a place of ultimate trust in God. I have to manage my trust as I can easily fall back into my old ways of doubt, fear, worry, anxiety, etc.

Its getting better and I can only be expectant that God has great things in store for me the more I become rooted and grounded in truth. Develop and grow in the fruit of the spirit and working to become the best version of me possible.

Faith has to be active and in use in my life for it to grow. Faith has to infiltrate my soul in the places where those other things have resided for so long to evict them. Cause faith is in my spirit already. It just needs to become operable in my soul(mind,will, and emotions).

The more this happens faith for what I believe God for that are now unseen are seen by Him and he wants me to trust that no matter if there are signs or not just believe and watch Him come through.

Greetings Readers! I began blogging in Aug 2017 about my personal experiences, thing I have going on in my life that I am working toward overcoming. I write my blogs to help encourage others that may be going through some of the things like I have dealt with in life to show them there is help and hope no matter what we are going through in life. My writings have helped me to begin to write my very first book and it is coming along greatly and I sure hope to have it published perhaps next year would be great. So, please stay tuned for that! I want my life to help inspire others to keep going and to not quit when life gets hard. We all may face different things but we can learn from each other if we see how we overcome in an area that another may be struggling in. I write to encourage and uplift to bring a glimmer of hope when there isn't much offered out there in the world today. I have been an avid reader for years and this year has been a year of me putting my writing out there for the world to begin to see as I have of others. ~Love Life ~ Live Life~ ;)
