Faith Without Sight

Hebrews 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

2 Corinthians 5:7
We live by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

Notes: The experiences and circumstances of this present life, often painful and perplexing, are what is visible to the Christian, but these are merely phenomena in the passing parade of our fallen age and are therefore temporary and fleeting. To fix our eyes on these visible things would cause us to lose heart. By contrast the unseen realities, which are no less real for being invisible are eternal and imperishable. Accordingly, we look up and away from the impermanent appearances of this present world scene. (The NIV Study Bible, 1995 The Zondervan Corporation.)

Faith, hope, and love are all unseen. We may not see them, but we feel them. We know they are there. Remember to dwell on the unseen, rather than worry about the things we see. 🙂Pink Tulip Flower-03
