Everyone sometimes wants a sign from the heavens if they are on the right path in their chosen religion. These signs could be appearances of religious figures on objects like buildings. It can be dreams that give you hope. It can be strangers or acquaintances that unexpectedly guide you. Some believe that good health and prosperity may also be seen as a sign from the heavens. Finally victory in war or battle may indicate God’s approval.
Does God use these signs to strengthen our faith? Some say that the signs are present in the challenges that we face everyday. Others say if there is a God, God is a spectator. Of course there are people that take the middle road, and say God shows his presence sometimes, especially when we ask in our prayers.
Dreams may not come true, the good do not always win, and good people also become ill. Where is God’s sign in these outcomes? These outcomes may be God’s guidance. We may be waiting for a sign, when God may already be helping us.
