“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” – John 20:29

It is difficult to know that God is with us and to know that he exists and trust him when we cannot see him. However, we can use our other senses to feel him and to know that he is there. Just because we cannot physically see him does not mean that we should stop believing in him.

Trust His Word

We are given an entire book that is proof that he exists. It is the book that tells us to believe in him and to trust him. The Bible is full of God’s word and commandments, it tells us the things he has done in the past and his promises for the future. Trust his word, trust that when he says he is working in your life and that he knows what is best for you, he means it.

“I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”– Genesis 28:15

Talk To Him

Go to him whenever you are both happy and sad, in every aspect of life, talk to him. Go to him with all of your worries, your struggles, and concerns, but also with your praises and thank him for all that he has given you.

“With him I speak face to face, clearly and not in riddles; he sees the form of the Lord. Why then were you not afraid to speak against my servant Moses?” – Numbers 12:8

Notice His Work

Take the time and effort to notice what God is doing in your life and the things he has given you. He is constantly working in your favor and helping you through life. Even when it is hard to see and understand what he is doing, trust that it is for the best. He has a reason for putting you through every situation and is giving you a purpose in life. Glorify him and praise him for giving you the life that you live today and every day.

Appreciate His Creation

There are little things in life that we take for granted, like the ground we walk on and the sun in the sky. Appreciate every day that God has given you. With each new day, comes a new opportunity to make a difference in the world. You are given a purpose, go out and praise him with everything you do. Shine his light to others, you never know who is going to need it.
