Looking for Jesus
This devotional was written by Robin Dugall
“Blessed are those who haven’t seen, yet believe.” John 20:20
Have you ever wondered why you can’t see certain things other people claim are real? But, are they? For example, have you ever wondered what the planet
The truth is that there are many things in the world you can’t see that are really important for your life. Things like hope, love, fun, devotion, courage, faith, joy, commitment and mercy. If you spent time thinking about it, there are probably more things you haven’t seen but believe exist than things you have seen. Here’s something you need to know: When you see the good things in life, those are ways that God shows Himself to you. That’s right. When you see love, that’s God. The Bible says that God is love. When you see something really bright, that’s a reminder of God. The Bible says that God is light. There are so many things you see everyday that God is trying to use to show you who He is. Jesus prayed that we would have “eyes to see and ears to hear.” Jesus wants us to be on the lookout for Him. We don’t have to see Him to believe that He is there, because He has left us so many ways (clues) to see Him. So, be on the lookout for Jesus. He is the most real thing in the entire world. He wants to be real to you!

1. How does God show Himself to you daily? If it is true that the heavens declare the presence of God, have you experienced that before? Do you see God in all that you see every day?
2. Why does God give us the gift of faith? Does that make seeing Him any easier? Why?
