Believe, and You Will See

“Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?”

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.
Day unto day utters speech,
And night unto night reveals knowledge.

There is no speech nor language
Where their voice is not heard.
Their line has gone out through all the earth,
And their words to the end of the world.
(Genesis 1:1, Psalm 19:1-4)

What God reveals to the world, is for us to ponder. What He does not, who can understand? For there's none but Jesus who fully understands the breadth, the length, the height, the depth, and the glory of the Lord's Kingdom.

It's something grand, something majestic, something glorious, something that'll always be so much more than we can ever think of.

What is a human but a flesh? It's not a self-defeating statement to say that we mortals don't have forever. To me, it's a very much realistic acknowledgement of life. Truly, truly, who can ever live with no God?

Ephesians 3:18
And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is.

Hebrews 1:3
He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Philippians 2:9-11
Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

John 14:1
“Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me."

John 11:40
Jesus said to her, "Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God?"

The way to see God? Really simple. Start by opening your heart and let Him in. Actions set forth emotions. Maybe you're in doubts toward God and you want to challenge Him. That's okay. You'll understand more about Him in time, once you start believing..

God bless you :)
