Seeing with faith

Through faith also Sara herself received strength to
conceive seed, and was delivered of a child when she was past
age, because she judged him faithful who had promised.
(KJV Hebrews 11:11)

Having faith in a person of course includes the fact that we believe they exist, but it’s deeper than that. Having faith in someone means you trust them, means that if they say or promise something, you know it will be done.

So, having faith in God is more than just believing He exists. It’s knowing that, whatever He promises, is done. God never left heaven, and since we are His children, we can’t leave heaven either. Heaven is completely above and beyond any mistaken belief in the limits of mortal earth, so we don’t have to wait for God’s word to be fulfilled through the constraints of mortal existence. God is always speaking to us, and our greater and greater faith in Him will open our eyes to see what He has already, always done. God does not work within the confines of time…the evening and the morning (as mentioned in the first chapter of Genesis) will always be the day, unlimited by a mortal sense of time and history.

Having faith in God is such a joy: it allows us to see more clearly the rock on which we stand, and therefore we can confidently go forward, faithful that our rock, our Father Mother, loves us forever.

    1. Hi there, thanks for your comment! I like what you said about being clear on how we’re living life – whose power are we relying on? So crucial. A quote I’ve loved that goes along with that is this: “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, today is big with blessings.” (from the very first page in the Preface to Science and Health, with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy. This is a book I study, along with the Bible, to help me understand how to heal – how to see more clearly man’s unbroken relationship with God.) I hope you enjoy following my posts, I’ll keep checking yours too! Have a great day
