Invisible Man – Good News for February 21

21 02 2009

Hebrews 11:1-3, 6

Brothers and sisters, Faith is the realization of what is hoped for and evidence of things not seen. Because of it the ancients were well attested. By faith we understand that the universe was ordered by the word of God, so that what is visible came into being through the invisible.

But without faith it is impossible to please him, for anyone who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

The Daily Path: I cannot see God as I see my wife, children and friends. He doesn’t knock on my door, enter my house and put food in my refrigerator. I won’t see Him walking into the bank, greeting the teller, or depositing funds into my account so that I can pay the mortgage. 

Even though I can’t see God do any of these things, He’s doing them. I believe that God is responsible for all the blessings that have come my way. Today I can say that I have complete faith in God as the master architect in my life. Although invisible, He’s revealed himself to me. Not in the same way He did with Peter, James and John up on a mountain (Mark 9:2). Instead God has revealed Himself in the face of others who enter my life and the unseen groundwork that enables me to find true abundance.  

I wish I could do a better job of explaining faith. All I can tell you is the more I stay connected to God, the more He reveals himself to me. Though invisible, I have faith that God exists.

Room to Chat: Yesterday afternoon I had the opportunity to stop at St. Monica’s Church for some quiet time with God. While I was there, an elderly woman came into the chapel. She had a respiratory ailment of some sort and could barely breath after the short walk from the parking lot. She sat down trying to catch her breath. Then the woman began to pray. Although she intended to pray quietly, because of her difficulty breathing, her words became audible to those of us in the chapel. The first thing she said to begin her prayer was “I love you, Jesus.”

Wow! How is that for a prayer?
