Faith in God is a belief in someone we do not necessarily see, we don’t necessarily feel, but yet we believe in Him. There is a story that tells about a house that caught on fire.

Joy, joy, please jump I’ll catch you.” No. The boy shook his head. He was afraid and would not jump. His dad knows if he doesn’t jump he is going to die. The little boy cries out, “I don’t see you, Daddy. All I see are the flames and the smoke. I can’t see you.” The dad says, “You don’t need to see me, because I see you. Jump!” And the boy did jump, and the dad caught him in his arms. This is the way it is with God. We don’t always necessarily see him, but he sees us very clearly.
