The Key to Sight 

“I’ll believe it when I see it.” That may sound reasonable; skepticism is a highly valued attribute in modern culture, and it has its place. But that isn’t how God’s kingdom operates. One of the paradoxes of the kingdom culture is that if we want to see God, miracles, answers to prayer, or the realization of our God-given desires, we’ll have to believe them first. We’ll have to place our faith in the promises of God before we experience their fulfillment.

So while the world says, “I’ll believe it when I see it,” we say, “I’ll see it when I believe it.” Jesus affirmed this often: “If you believe.” “Because of your faith.” “All things are possible.” “Your faith has made you well.” Or, more pointedly, “Didn’t I tell you that you would see God’s glory if you believe?” (John 11:40 nlt). Faith, the currency of the kingdom, comes before sight. We may not see immediately; faith must be patient and persevering. But God’s promises really are tangible and real to eyes of faith. And we really will see them if we believe them.
