"See" like a cat

Did you know that of all the senses, a cat's hearing is its sharpest. Felines can perceive the slightest noise and accurately judge where it's coming from. In a way a cat sees better with its ears than its eyes.

You have also probably heard that you should not believe everything you see. Well cats do not, they believe what they hear.

Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. Romans 10:17

With tragedies happening at our doorsteps and images of those tragedies replaying on TV screens and newspaper it would be easy to believe that this world is in chaos. Yet God promised us that he would never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5).

When you see other people pass you for promotions because they spread rumors and make themselves look better, it would be easy to lose heart. But God says that he will avenge us (Romans 12:19).

There are two ways to live in this world. You can go by what you see or you can trust God’s promises.

Faith comes by hearing.

Do you hear Him? He speaks to you daily. Be attentive. Be still (like a cat) and listen. See with your ears. Trust what He is telling you.

Let the temporary pains, disappointments and chaos fade away. Know that if God is for you, then who should you fear.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18
