See By Faith
 
 
On the wall of a concentration camp, a prisoner had carved the following words:
 
“I believe in the sun, even though it doesn’t shine.
 
I believe in love, even when it isn’t shown.
 
I believe in God, even when he doesn’t speak.”
 
What hand could have cut such a conviction?  What eyes could have seen good in such horror? There’s only one answer:  Eyes that chose to see the unseen.
 
Paul wrote in 2nd Corinthians 4:18: “We set our eyes not on what we see but on what we cannot see.  What we see will only last a short time, but what we cannot see will last forever.”
 
We can see either the hurt or the Healer.
 
Mark it down. God knows you and I are blind.  He knows living by faith and not by sight doesn’t come naturally.  He will help us.  Accept his help.
 
Either live by the facts or see by faith!
