Believing is Seeing

Jesus said, “You believe because I told you I saw you under the fig tree. You will see greater things than that.” John 1:50

Believing sees with eyes of faith. Faith looks into the face of God to face the unknown. What may not be apparent to logic and reason is revealed by looking beyond the material to the spiritual. Belief in God opens up a vista of breathtaking spiritual formations. We see the mountains of His majesty and the fertile valley of His faithfulness. Belief in Jesus allows us to behold the sun of His salvation and the heavens of His hope. Believing sees what God sees.

Furthermore, our initial belief in Christ as our Savior cracked open the door into His house of wisdom and understanding. By faith through grace, we will spend a lifetime exploring the eternal truths decorated throughout the Lord’s spiritual residence. Our continued faith opens doors to God’s will. We walk down a hallway of hope and discover a prayer closet with Christ’s comfort. Up the stairs takes more effort, but we walk with Jesus in trust and He reveals His life changing truths. Our adventurous journey with Jesus is fostered by faith. Believing sees the ways of God.

“I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you” (Ephesians 1:18).

Moreover, believing may allow us to see God do greater things. We believe God for our child’s heart to turn back to Him, so in His time they grow tired of their ways and return to God’s ways. We believe God to heal our friend’s body with greater stamina. We believe God to open a financial door with His great provision. We believe God to get the gospel to thousands with His great power, resulting in new churches. We believe God for a great revival, so He changes us, our family, church, city, state, nation, and the world. Faith can facilitate God’s greater works.

Older faith can become stale faith if not revitalized by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, avoid spiritual coasting, just getting by on past blessings. We can anticipate the better days to come and not be complacent with the good old days of the past. What greater work does God want to do in your life? Double, triple, quadruple your giving? Plant a church? Sell your business? Write a book? Have a child? Attempt great things only your great God can accomplish. Believe Him and watch Him work!

“Whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these” (John 14:12).

Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me the eyes of faith to believe You for greater works to come.
