Relational, Inspirational, Invitational: The Bible & Prayer

Main Idea:

If God really wants to reveal Himself to me, why can’t I see Him? God wants to reveal Himself to everyone and to you individually. God understands that what we can see with our eyes is limited. We can only see what is in front of us; we are short sighted. Rather, we need to see God by having FAITH in Him,
which can take us far deeper than anything we can see with our eyes.
