I was thinking about people who say "I don't have enough faith or trust to believe in God" or "How do you expect me to give my life over to someone I don't even know exists?" These people say: "Why would I put my life, trust and faith in someone I can't see? Sure I can 'Hear God's voice', sure I can 'See God's works' but how do I know these things are from God and not just my imagination or the works of people? How do I know God isn't just some made up 'Story' designed to make people feel safe, loved and secure?"
As I thought about these things, I thought of this: "People can go hop in a plane, they put their lives, trust, and faith in the pilot and his abilities to keep them safe and well. They can't see this pilot, they can hear his voice over the speakers, they can see his work, in that he is flying the plane. But how do they know for sure that there is a pilot? How do they know that it isn't all just some 'story' to make people feel safe?"
In this analogy what is the difference between God and the Pilot? I simply cannot see a difference!!! Next time someone asks why they should put faith in something they can't see, as in God, mention an analogy like this, it's not made to prove a point, it's not made to judge people, it is simply to get them thinking about what faith is and how much of it they really have!
