In our daily lives we often have trouble believing. Believing that there is even a God; a Savior, one who will deliver us from this frustrating existence we call life. Some even reach for false prophets and idols because their spiritual minds can not grasp a faith, a God unseen. Having faith in God is complete reliance on Him.
Scripture says: "Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you."---Matthew 9:29 KJV
Faith is the belief in something unseen. Belief in a God who you can not see is not easy. In this modern day of 'gotta have it right now,' it's difficult for us to place our troubles, our lives in the hands of an unseen savior and Lord. There are even those who defiantly say there is no God. That if there was a God, then why would he let bad things happen? Why did He let my wife die, why did he take my son?
Those questions don't just question the existence of an unseen savior. Those questions beg for answers -- immediate answers that will ease the pain of loss from a life cut short. Those questions also open the doors to wisdom and understanding. They are a great starting point for Him to heal our pain.
See, God, is a compassionate healer. He hurts when we hurt; He cries when we cry. He knows what it is like to walk in the flesh. "The spirit is indeed willing, but the flesh is weak."---Matthew 26:41 KJV
He knows we want to believe, we want to follow Him, but quite simply we are afraid. Afraid of being persecuted by non-believers, persecuted just for the sake of persecution.
Listen, we will be tested and persecuted for the normal day to day stuff anyway, so being persecuted for your faith, is well, nothing new. "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake."---Matthew 5:11 KJV
You will believe in something, why not believe in God?
