Minute Meditation: Finding God by Faith

“For we live by faith, not by sight” (II Corinthians 5:7, NIV).
You see with your eyes, yet you don’t see God. You feel with your hands, yet you don’t touch God. You neither see nor touch God, because God is Spirit, a living, real, non-material Being. You will, though, sooner or later, know God by knowing in a different way; one which is different from the material or sensory ways of knowing.
How, then, do you see God? With the “eyes” of your heart? How do feel God? With the “hands” of faith! Only those who have faith will “see” such a God. As Francis Thompson (1859 – 1907), in his poem “No Strange Land,” writes,
“O world invisible, we view thee,
O world intangible, we touch thee,
O world unknowable, we know thee,
Inapprehensible, we clutch thee!”
In other words, God is perceived by the heart, not by human eyes and hands.
Thought for the Day: O you, of little faith, why do you only believe what you can see, when you believe your own thoughts, yet cannot see them?
