I was doing some research for a Teaching Series that I’m working on, and I came across this picture.
It’s a painting of “Doubting Thomas” & Jesus, by Caravaggio, an Italian painter from the late 1500’s
I have to admit, IT HIT ME HARD!
How many times have I been going through a situation, not be able to see a way out of it, & want to get into a place of doubt?
Jesus told Thomas in John 20:29, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Faith is believing BEFORE you see it, NOT afterwards. Anyone can believe then!
You may be going through a difficult situation right NOW and not SEE a way out.
Guess what? God’s not worried, and you shouldn’t be either. Let your faith rise today & believe God, even for the impossible!
This picture was a reminder for me, and hopefully to you, that Jesus LOVES.
He has the scars to prove it.
