Today’s Verse, Hebrews 11:3
Tuesday, April 4, 2017
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Reflections on Today’s Verse
Do you have true faith? Faith is the means by which we are able to “see” this invisible world the Bible speaks of repeatedly. That is belief’s true job. To put it another way, faith is to the spiritual realm what the five senses are to the natural realm. The writer of Hebrews says that faith is “the evidence of things we cannot yet see” (Hebrews 11:1).
By faith, as so many faithful believers before us, we begin recognize the existence of the spiritual world and learn to depend on the Lord for His help in our daily life and future. Our goal, then, is to develop eyes to see the unseen through faith in His unfailing promises. True faith hels us to see the things that are not natural for us to see–like God’s plans. Do you trust him today?

Father, I praise you eternally you not only predicts the future, but you also plan and purpose the future. Thank you that all your permissions of imperfection are perfect plans, for you take all things into account wisely when you choose to permit people, events, and circumstances in my life. And thank you that there is nothing that exists that is powerful enough to thwart the plans of you, Father, our Sovereign Savior King. Lord, thank you that you are not a whimsical God. You are forever in control! Help me today to see your hand at work in my life. In Christ’s name I pray. Amen.
