“Seeing is believing.”
We have heard this all our lives. It has been true since the Creation of man. When Adam and Eve, Saw that they were Naked, they knew, they had sinned. (Genisis 3:7)
So they hid.
God saw the Righteousness in Noah and told him to build an Ark. (Genisis 7:1)
Noah sent a Dove, to see if the waters had abated. (Genisis 8:8)
David saw Bathsheba yet didn’t realize how far he had fallen, until Nathan the Profit, made him see, and rebuked him. (2 Samual 12:7)
Do we have the same problem as the Hebrews?
Deuteronomy 29: 2.
‘And Moses called unto all Israel, and said unto them, Ye have seen all that the LORD did before your eyes in the land of Egypt unto Pharaoh, and unto all his servants, and unto all his land; The great temptations which thine eyes have seen, the signs, and those great miracles: Yet the LORD hath not given you an heart to perceive, and eyes to see, and ears to hear, unto this day.’
Not really. The Church today doesn’t see and experience the Signs, Wonders and Miracles of God.
One of my favorite scriptures is in Isaiah 41:19-20.
Isaiah 41: 19.
“I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, and the pine, and the box tree together: That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.”
When John the Baptist, in a time of doubt, sent his disciples to Jesus to ask, Are You the One?
Jesus told them to tell John what they had seen and heard. (Like 7:22). The sick healed the dead raised, all of the miracles He performed.
We should be seeking the tools the Lord sent to build His Church. We somehow refuse. We bury the Talents the Holy Spirit delivered to us.
The Gifts are sitting on our mantle, unopened, unused, and not recognized. People need to see, know, consider, and understand, that the Lord He is God and that He has given us the job of building His Church.
I am disappointed in myself, for not seeking His face, for not being the obedient Servant, He has called me to be.
Only Believe…. Why do we not?

We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
