2 Corinthians 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight
Walking by faith is a conscious choice every believer must make. In context, verse 7 above comes in the middle of the author’s teaching on the assurance of resurrection. He says we can be confident that we shall have new heavenly bodies, clothed with immortality, in spite of current physical challenges.
However, the principle of walking by faith applies in every other area of our lives. For instance, when the physical evidence says one thing and the Word of God says another, you can choose to believe, expect and confess the truth of God rather than the lies of the devil.
When the devil throws fear at you, choose to believe the report of the Lord. When the accuser of the Brethren assaults your integrity with all sorts of slander, gossip and lies, stand on what God’s Word says about you. When ends are not meeting, you’re in debt and your financial future looks bleak, walk by faith and not by sight.
When your breakthrough seems to delay, still walk by faith. When your answers seem to linger, still walk by faith. When it seems there’s no light at the end of the tunnel, still walk by faith. When you’re lonely and isolated, still walk by faith. Whatever is happening around you today, choose to walk by faith and not by sight.
