The world says, “See to believe!” God says, “Believe to see.” ~Melanie Harper
I’ve had blessings and prayer requests that have been too specific and too strategic to believe they were manifested because the universe was aligned or it was a strong coincidence. Only an intelligent, strategic, all-loving God could have done those things. I believe because God is who He says He is–not who man believes Him to be.
On the flip, I’ve also witnessed and experienced fear, terror, and instances that were in direct opposition to any goodness, encouragement, enlightenment, or growth to discount that there is a force (also strategic) that seeks to destroy–for me to not believe in the devil as well.
