“On Knowing That What We Want Already Exists

The Bible’s adage “Blessed are those who have faith and cannot see” means “Empowered are those who remember there is a truer truth, even when circumstances tempt them to believe otherwise.”

When a pilot cannot see the horizon because of low visibility he or she doesn’t assume that the horizon has disappeared. At a time of low visibility, the pilot flies on instruments that can gauge the situation more clearly than he or she can. Faith is like flying on instruments: it’s acting on the assumption that just because you can’t see a possibility at the moment doesn’t mean that it’s not there.

It’s easy enough to have faith in God’s infinite abundance when we have millions of dollars sitting in the bank; it’s easy enough to have faith in love when we’re receiving a lot of it; and it’s easy enough to have faith in the power of peace when there is no war.

But when it’s hard to have faith is when we need it the most. By faith, we bring forth what we want, by knowing that it already exists in a realm we cannot yet see.”

Excerpt From: Williamson, Marianne. “A Year of Miracles.”
