I couldn’t see the wind, but I could feel its effect.
I frequently pass a giant sycamore tree when walking. There is a unique music to the rustling of its leaves, whether a light breeze or a strong wind is blowing. As I recently approached the corner where I begin to hear its song, it seemed I was hearing the rush of creek water. Paying more attention to the sound, I realized it was the wind blowing through the leaves of the large sycamore tree.
The mysterious line between visible and invisible revealed the evidence of the unseen wind. My hair whipping around my face felt the effect as the wind grew stronger.
Our invisible God is a greater invisible mystery. I can’t see Him, but I feel His effects. His life and His Spirit have been breathed into me. He has changed me. His invisible work in my life is like the wind I can’t see but that I know is there.
Yes, I believe in a God I can’t see. I believe in the salvation that is mine because I have accepted His free gift of salvation and eternal life by grace through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. I believe in the invisible regenerating work He did that made me a new creation.
There are many unseen factors in the Christian walk, all evidence of an unseen God who is lived out in my life every day. The effects of God in my life are just as real as the wind blowing through my hair and through the leaves of the giant sycamore tree. This is the life of faith.
Let the unseen God change your life.
