2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV) For we walk by faith, not by sight.
I’m pretty sure walking by faith is supposed to be encouraging news. Yet, we can hear that statement and find ourselves scared. What? You mean I don’t see what’s coming or the solution? I just have to believe that God is taking care of it? Yes!
See, our relationship is built on faith in God. Our salvation is built on the faith that we believe in God’s master plan for Jews and Gentiles to be saved through the life and death of Jesus Christ. The foundation of what we have with God is faith built. So it shouldn’t be that big of an issue to walk by faith.
Half of what we see everyday we wouldn’t believe if someone had told us in advance. For many of us, no one could have convinced us that we would have accomplished the things that we have in our lifetime. So to walk by faith shouldn’t be so jarring. As Christians, it’s what you do.
You faithfully believe. You faithfully obey. And you faithfully wait. And God always, always faithfully does His part. It’s a formula that has been proven time and time again to work.
