What Faith Sees - April 25, 2023

Faith is trusting what the eye cannot see. Eyes see storms; faith sees Noah’s rainbow. Your eyes see your faults; your faith sees your Savior. Your eyes see your guilt; your faith sees his blood. Your eyes look in the mirror and see a sinner, a failure. But by faith you look in the mirror and see a robed prodigal bearing the ring of grace on your finger and the kiss of your Father on your face.

How do I know this is true? someone asks. Nice prose, but give me the facts. “God’s power is very great for those who believe,” Paul taught. Ephesians 1:19 and 20 says, “That power is the same as the great strength God used to raise Christ from the dead.” Next time you wonder if God can forgive you, read that verse. The very hands that were nailed to the cross are open for you.
