Invisibility powers

You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy. 1 Peter 1:8

What we dismiss as nonexistent  because we can’t see it might simply be something waiting to be discovered.  Consider this: What science has traditionally called “empty space” in the universe, in the atoms that make up everything, including us, is not actually empty. That space is filled with the activity of quark and gluon field fluctuations, dark matter and energy, cosmic radiation, and quantum particles moving around. All this activity was happening even when scientist were calling it “empty space.”

Operating without awareness of God’s love, without trusting His goodwill, and without rejoicing in a relationship with Him is like accepting empty space in life when life is actually teeming with the invisible, active presence of God. Our desire to love and be loved, to be able to trust, to experience joy are also intangible and invisible yet we experience greater fulfillment and even better health in life when our intangible needs are met. Relationship with God involves a  continuous discovery of invisible things.

Lord, show me more invisible stuff!
