Don’t doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.


Don’t doubt in the dark what God has shown you in the light.

No matter how hard you try, in a room that’s completely dark, you’ll never be able to see anything. Even if you know for sure that something is in the room, it’s impossible to see it if the room is totally dark. You know it’s there, but you just can’t see it.

That’s what faith is like. You may be absolutely confident that God loves you; however, during the difficult and dark times in life, you may not be able to see that love.

Hebrews 11:1 defines faith as being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. Even when you don’t see God’s love for you, you can still have faith that he loves you — that is, you can be certain that he loves you, even though you don’t see it.

During those “dark times” in your spiritual life, you may not be able to see God’s love, his faithfulness, his grace, or his promises to you; however, don’t lose your faith. Be certain of what [you] do not see.

One day, your faith will be sight.
