“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see.”

Hebrews 11:1

THE WIND.

We cannot see it, but we know it’s there.

We know it’s there…because we can see the effects of the wind.

We can see leaves blow in the wind.
We can see our curtains flow as a gentle breeze comes in through our window.
We can see an umbrella turn inside-out when the wind blows really hard.

Not for a second do we question if the wind exists.

We know it does…because we can see the effects of it.


I guess it’s kind of the same thing with God.

We cannot see him, but we know He’s there.

We know He’s there…because we can see the effects of Him.

Sometimes it’s in the little things . . .

Like just the right song coming on the radio at just the right time…and the words are exactly what we needed to hear.
Like a friend calling with a word of encouragement at the VERY second we needed it.
Like when we just flip open our Bible, desperate for a word from the Lord, and He delivers just the right verse.
No coincidences.
That is God.

Sometimes it’s in the big things . . .

Like a miraculous healing.
Like sudden financial provision when there seemed to be no way.
Like the mending of a broken relationship that seemed beyond repair.
Like lives transformed before our eyes.
No coincidences.

That is God.
