Believe without Seeing

I’m Dr. Bob, and for just a Mentoring Minute I want to ask, what do you need to see before you will believe? How often do we hear people say, “I won’t believe unless I see it with my own eyes?” In fact, that is exactly what Thomas said, when the others reported they had seen the resurrected Lord. In John 20:25 (NKJV) he said, “…Unless I see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” Then, in verse 29, we read that Jesus appeared to him and said, Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” When you get a word from God, do not set conditions, and do not ask questions, and above all, refuse to give fear a place in your response. In Luke 8:50, Jesus told the official whose daughter was dying, “Do not be afraid, only believe.” It is principle for the ages and the secret to successful faith. You can be like Abram, who, when told by God to get up and go, never had to ask for a road map or a list of rest stops. He just got up and went. I’m Dr. Bob. Put feet to your faith and walk into your destiny. Contact me at Dr.Bob@mentoringministry.com and tell me how you made stepping-stones out of stumbling blocks because you walked with steps of faith.
