JOHN 20:31 NKJ 31 but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
"But how can I believe in an invisible God?"
The same way you believe in the wind. No one has ever seen the wind. But we all see the effects of the wind.
You may not see God, but open your eyes and look around and you will see God in action. In His marvelous creation, in people's testimonies of God's provision and deliverance, in miracles happening all over the earth, in answered prayer.
It is not necessary to see God, or feel God, to believe in Him!
JOHN 20:29 NKJ 29 Jesus said to him, "Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed."
If it was always easy to believe, there would be no reward offered for believing. No one offers a reward or bonus for doing something easy.
HEBREWS 11:6 NKJ 6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
The Bible speaks of the fight of faith. That means you will have a struggle with believing. Don't be surprised. Expect it.
1 TIMOTHY 6:12 NKJ 12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
JOHN 6:28-29 NKJ 28 Then they said to Him, "What shall we do, that we may work the works of God?" 29 Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He sent."
SAY THIS: I choose to believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and His Word is truth.
