It is very easy to believe that something exists when we see it, but to believe in someone without having seen it is faith. And this is our faith, that we believe that Christ is the Son of God and that He exists in His maximum splendor even without having seen Him. And this faith must never change, for Christ calls everyone who believes without having seen, blessed.
The Bible tells us about a situation that can be very useful to us, which is very well known to all of us, it says:
27 Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Here we have the situation of the risen Christ. For many people, the resurrection of Christ was simply a fallacy and apparently even among His disciples there was someone with the same thought of the mass. In verse 25 of this same chapter says:
So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord!”
But he said to them, “Unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.”
Amazing! But apparently Thomas had a very superficial faith, this gentleman did not care to see the same Christ, with the same physique or anything like that, if he did not see his hands with the sign of the nails or put his fingers in the place of the nails, and put his hand in his side, he would not believe. Vast disbelief!
So there are many people, they are like Thomas, they see the works of the Lord and still do not believe and insist on saying that they have never seen God and that is why they do not believe.
After Thomas could do everything he wanted to prove that it was Jesus, he said: “My Lord, and my God!”. It is very easy to say these words in this way, but let’s see something very important that Jesus said at that moment: “Because you have seen me, Thomas, you believed, blessed are those who did not see, and believed.”
We are truly blessed when we believe in God without having seen Him, and this is the source of our faith.
Very good to read the daily scripture, but the Ad’s is annoying
Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!”
“…. blessed are those who did not see, and believed.” said our Lord Jesus.
We are of those who are blessed when inspired by the Holy Spirit, we wish to praise, we are amazed, we feel dependant on Him, our soul crys out “my Lord and my God”
When we say “my Lord”, that means that we are servants of Him, we are ready to obey his words and fulfil his will. That is what a servant do…
When we say “my God”, we recognize He is the only God of our life… that He is the only one we follow, serve, and adore. Not any other god of this World.
Inside of us, in our heart there is not any other one than our God creator of heaven and earth, the Lord Jesus, who was since the beginning, that who is the same as the eternal Father, who is manifested in the Holy Spirit also. Our God is a triune God, though in those moments when we are driven to Jesus and say “Lord” to Him, our soul adores and shows his love to a personal God the Lord Jesus Christ. He who has died for me and then I adore him in a spiritual way, not imagining any man, which is forbidden in the Law. Or I adore the Father in the name of Jesus, obeying this word of Jesus Christ.
“That all men should honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He that honors not the Son honors not the Father which has sent him.” (John 5:23).
We must remember that..
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 5:24).
May the Lord God teach us to look for Him in spirit and in truth. Amen
Am so amazed by the daily verses you are writing to us may the living God of Israel continue to bless you.
My spirit is blessed trough your teaching

I have read this from Patricia:
“i thank you for healing me of this cancer and helping me to breathe each and every day, with out you i could not make it through the day.”
And Falicia has written:
” Lord please lead my husband back home to me.and not let my husband walk out on his marriage no more.i want back what was stolen from me.we belong together in this marriage thank you lord for what you are doing in our marriage.”
In both subjects I have prayed the Lord and I want to thank him he has worked…
Thank you Lord you has helped Patricia. It seams she has got her healing yet.
I pray you Lord you go on helping Falicia and her husband so that their marriage be restored in complete.
I pray you Lord and thanks you for you love us.
