The reality of God in your life
So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.
–2 Corinthians 5:6-7
I was reading an article not long ago about what scientists call ‘parallel realities.’ Essentially, it means an unseen reality that exists alongside something that is seen. You and I may not see it or fully experience it, but that doesn’t mean it’s not real.
You see, every person has his own perceived reality. But beyond that concept of reality there are also unseen realities. For example, a blind person has never seen a cloud, but that doesn’t mean clouds don’t exist. In fact, they’re just as real for the blind person as they are for someone who can walk outside and see them.
And certainly, this concept is true concerning faith as well. I’ve never personally seen God. In fact, the Bible says no one has (John 1:18). And I’ve never shaken hands with Jesus Christ. But I believe that God is more real than the words on this page.
I’ve heard people say that when it comes to faith, “Give me something of substance. Give me something real.” Well, faith is real! In fact, faith in God will be around long after this world is gone and finished.
So when it comes to your faith, get rid of any abstract ethereal concept of God because He is more real than anything you’ll ever experience!
GOD IS MORE REAL THAN ANYTHING YOU’LL EXPERIENCE. SO HAVE FAITH THAT HE EXISTS TODAY AND WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU!
