Today’s Scripture: “Now faith is con dence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” - Hebrews 11:1
Today’s Faith Thought: We cannot talk about spiritual vision without talking about faith. Faith is seeing through spiritual lenses when our human eyes see nothing. Jesus wanted His disciples to understand the power of faith in human terms. He told them that if they had faith the size of a little, tiny mustard seed, it could move a mountain. Imagine the contrast of a mustard seed to a mountain! In his creative masterpiece, The Screwtape Letters, C.S. Lewis uses ctional demons to offer a unique perspective of spiritual truths. Screwtape - a master demon - writes letters to his nephew to instruct him how to make Christians fail. In one chapter about prayer, Screwtape encourages his young demonic nephew to make sure humans do not let their “picture” of God go beyond the pictures of Jesus that one nds hanging on their walls or in their children’s Bibles. He argues that if a Christian sees the God whom the demons know exists - in all His omnipotent heavenly glory - the Christian’s faith would be too powerful. Oh, believer! Don’t limit your vision of God. Dare to imagine the God who is and not the one your human mind can comprehend. Open your eyes of faith and see!
Today’s Prayer of Faith: Heavenly Father, increase my faith! Just as you healed those who were physically blind, heal my spiritual blindness! Give me eyes that see You - in the fullness of Your glory. Help me to move mountains through this powerful faith!
