His Promises are True

‘Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance for what we do not see.’ Hebrews 11:1

‘I’ll believe it when I see it.’ I’d been told the display of snowdrops would be the best I’d ever seen. Was it worth the long drive to see something which could turn out to be disappointing? This particular friend had exaggerated in the past; I could end up looking at just a few flowers gathered round the bark of a single tree.

How often do we say about our spiritual life ‘Seeing is believing,’ while actually the opposite is true. It is our not-seeing that is believing. We have not seen the wonders that await us in heaven but we believe we shall see them because God has promised them to us. Heaven is a place that our limited minds can’t grasp but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. Why? Because God has promised us that heaven is a place beyond our wildest dreams and He has a home for those who believe in His sacrifice. How can we trust what God has told us? He has never broken His promises to us.

We must now live by faith . We do not see the future or what it will be like, but we know we have a Saviour who will one day reveal it all.
