Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.” And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!”
Jesus said to him, “Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
You have heard the phrase “Doubting Thomas.” It is usually given to someone that will not believe what they have been told. And in this passage, we see that Thomas would not believe until he had actually seen Jesus.
Thomas was distraught, hurt and did not understand what had happened to the guy he followed for 3 years. He had seen things that in his mind didn’t make any sense.
The wonderful thing about this section of scripture is that Jesus was willing to show Himself and prove to Thomas that He was real. I have been there myself.
“But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.
We can rest in knowing that whenever we are searching for God, He will show Himself to us. Praying that you will continue trusting and seeking the Lord.
