Peter told us that the Word of God is greater than a visible representation of God and far better than hearing an audible voice of God. (I Peter 1:1-19) But, how can that be?
The amazing signs and wonders that we hear about in the Gospels were visible manifestations needed to CONVINCE people that God was willing and able to save, redeem, sanctify, heal, prosper, restore...and at it's core...LOVE US! How much greater it is that we believe and receive these promises purely because we have a personal relationship with God and have faith in His Word.
True faith is believing when we don't see it in the physical yet. We don't need a preacher to hear from God for us. We don't need to put out a fleece to confirm what we should do. The Word shows us what is possible and that gives us hope. This hope becomes faith and consistent, persistent, unwavering faith positions us to receive what grace provided. Make a decision today to be fully convinced by the Word of God!
"Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality—faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses]..." (Hebrews 11:1 Amplified
