Believe What the Bible Says – Not What Your Senses Tell You


If you are going to wait until you detect that every symptom has gone and your flesh corresponds with your faith and everything is fine before you are going to start believing God, then you’re all out of order and out of line with the Word, and you’ll never get very far in faith.

You see, the trouble is that so many people are like doubting Thomas, one of Jesus’ twelve disciples. Thomas said, “I’ll not believe until I can see Him and put my finger in the print in His hands and thrust my hand into the wound in His side” (John 20:25).

Then when Jesus appeared to the disciples, and Thomas saw Jesus, Thomas said, “. . . My Lord and my God” (John 20:28). Did Jesus praise Thomas for his lack of faith? No, Jesus said, “. . . Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed” (John 20:29).

In other words, Thomas didn’t believe in Jesus’ resurrection by faith as you and I believe in it. Thomas believed because he saw Jesus with his physical eyes; he relied totally on his senses. But we believe in Jesus’ resurrection because the Word of God says Jesus was raised from the dead.
