Those who believe without seeing shall be blessed. John 20:
John 20-24-29. 24.Thomas one of the twelve disciples, was not with the others when Jesus came. 25. They told him, “we have seen the Lord!” But he replied, “I wont believe it unless I see the nail wounds in his hands, put my fingers into them, and place my hand into the wound in his side. 26.” Eight days later the disciples were together again, and this time Thomas was with them; the doors were locked but suddenly, Jesus was standing among them. “Peace be with you he said.” 27. Then he said to Thomas “put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer believe!” 28. “My Lord and my God,” Thomas exclaimed. 29. Then Jesus said to him, ” you believe because you have seen me. Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”
Often we find it hard to believe that Jesus can still perform miracles, because we haven’t actually seen him perform these miracles in the flesh. Unlike the twelve disciples we are not able to do so. However Jesus has said, “blessed are those who believe without seeing me” We need to look at all the situations in life where we have seen the Lord’s hand at work, in order to believe.
Each new life is a miracle. Being blessed with a child is the biggest one of them all. When we are seriously ill and get better, that is also the Lord’s hand that is at work. Sometimes we hear of medical miracles where peoples lives are hanging in the balance and they survive. Isn’t that an amazing miracle.
Is it just a coincidence that all these things happen to people or maybe a stroke of luck. No it’s none of these, it’s all the Lord’s hand at work. Why not go ahead and ask God for a miracle in your life. When he answers you, and you see that miracle in your life, then you’ll believe without having to see him in the flesh.
