Yesterday I remarked how much of God’s work in us, and in others, is a mystery. There is so much of the working of God’s Spirit that we don’t see. Yet, God understands that we are physical beings and need to see things with our eyes, and apprehend them with all our senses. He does show us all the wonders of nature. He does let us share in the miracle of birth. He does guide us by His written word, and by circumstances of life. He does come to us in the visible elements of our sacraments. God works in many unseen ways, but He has not left us without visible evidence. All that we see from His gracious hand strengthens our faith, and helps us rely upon Him even in all of the mysteries of life.
