“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
Christian author, Thomas Aquinas wrote, “The object of hope is a future good which is arduous yet possible to obtain. It is therefore necessary that the object of hope should be proposed to a man as something which is possible, in order that he may hope.”
Aboard a ship that was sinking, a woman stood with her blind husband as she grasped for the rescue boat. But an officer pushed the man toward the back of the line, yelling, "Women and children only in these boats!" The wife pleaded with him, explaining that he was blind and that she wouldn't get on the boat if her husband couldn't go with her. The officer then waved them both onto the rescue boat. The man's hope was in his wife whom he could not see, but he trusted her in faith because he knew her and knew the love she had for him.
Final Thought In the same way, we cannot see God here on earth, but we can hope in what we cannot see because of the promises that He has made to us in His Word.
Prayer Father, I can't see You, but I know You're real and at work in my life. Thank You for the reassurance of Your presence and love. In Jesus Name, I pray, Amen.
