WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT
Today’s devotion follows in the same vein as yesterday. Our walk with God is by faith and not by sight. We trust God, not so much by what we see, but rather, what we know. God knows the way we take; consequently, we need to be confident that He knows each step we take. To walk by faith, you need a strong faith in God. Our faith should trust God even when we do not know where we are going. I have said on several occasions, there is no need for me to go to a soothsayer or fortuneteller. I [probably could not see what they may see coming my way. I would rather trust God even when I do not know what lies ahead. I look back over my life and see how God has kept me. If is knew the events that would have come into my life, I would have fallen apart. Yet, God kept me. II Corinthians 5:7 is our scriptural reference today:
“For we walk by faith, not by sight:”
The Apostle Paul examines both the earthly and heavenly condition. He indicates that we are not far from the Lord. He walks by faith is an indication that he trusts God. The path before us may be difficult according to Paul. He knows this personally, yet, he is confident that he is never out of God’s presence. Even when he faced death, he was courageous because he knew he would be home with the Lord. He has the spirit of assurance and walks with God each step for the way. He is not fearful, but confident that nothing can separate him from the love of God. Paul faces the affliction of life, even the possibility of death, with good courage. He knows his life is in God’s hands. What a wonderful testimony Paul shares with his fellow believers. Prayerfully, you are walking by faith and that you are content to trust God, knowing that He knows the way we take.
