Something We Cannot See

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

– Hebrews 11:1

We need to have faith in God! Faith simply means trust. Faith in God is a belief that there is something good happening that we can’t see. We trust that time is on our side because we’re living in God’s Kingdom. 

Faith is essential to our survival and quality of life. Why? Because faith has to do with the future. When we are unable to put our hope in anyone or anything, we quickly become despondent and crippled by worry, anxiety, and depression. Many of us are dealing with bad news, whether the concern is personal or business, family or financial. Perhaps something detrimental and out of the blue happened recently. Watching the news or monitoring Twitter exposes us to economic worries and rumors of war. We stress about viruses and dwell on political concerns in our nations, states, and cities. Unfortunately, we live in a world that capitalizes on bad news, which presents worst-case scenarios. In a world like this, we need to have faith!

Friend, God wants us to trust Him. If you’re facing bad news, you may not be able to see the good that’s on the horizon, and you can’t see the good that’s happening now. You must believe God’s word is true, instead of what you see in the media. I promise you that by trusting God, things will turn out better. God’s word is faithful, even when we’re faithless because He cannot deny Himself. That’s what the Bible says. God has miracles and open doors for you. God is able to break your chains and set you free from the spirit of disease, addiction, sadness, heartbreak, or loneliness. He will set you free!


Father, show me how to refocus my thoughts away from the negative events around me. Help me to have faith and see the good news on the horizon.


Do you know that by trusting God, things will turn out better? What open doors does God have for you?

  1. Pastor Bobby you have made such a huge difference in my faith journey. I began following Hour of Power while recovering from COVID-19 in December and in quarantine. I was healed body, mind, and spirit. I’m attending my local Presbyterian church once again at 10 am on Sunday and still have time to listen to your broadcast at noon our time. As a matter of fact I watch it again on TBN and DayStar! The first time I listen; then I take notes; finally I journal ways I can implement your teaching into my life that week! The sermons from Israel were Amazing! Thanks to you, and Hannah!

  2. Dear Pastor Bobby:

    I have been a follower of the Hour of Power from its early days when your grandfather preached at his beloved Crystal Cathedral; an inspirational structure our family had the opportunity to visit back in the day. And even though we didn’t have a chance to hear him preach in person, we watched most Sundays on TV. His messages were always uplifting and “positive”, and often were instrumental in helping us stay focused on God in our daily lives. Thank you for your daily devotionals, which I subscribe to and share with my family on a regular basis. I’m certain your grandfather is looking down on you and is extremely proud of what you’ve done to carry on his lifelong mission.

    God Bless you.
