“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” While we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen ( 2 Corinthians 4:18).
Walking by Faith
Even when you feel all out of faith…He is faithful.
You serve a God who is faithful: “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He who promised is faithful.” Hebrews 10:23 (amplified)
2 Corinthians 12:9 “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.”
We are finite human beings. For this reason there are seasons when you will feel weak. When we embrace our weakness, God gets all the glory because others can see His power within us.
John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.”
God promises to give you His peace so that you can feel confident regardless when everyone around you is fretful.
Isaiah 41:10 “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
God promises to be with you, and He is not only a promise maker but a promise keeper.
Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
As the Lord is in control of every falling sparrow, so he also is in control of every virus molecule. As Jesus said, “Fear not, therefore” (Matthew 10:31). He’s got this.
We live and walk by faith. Faith is trusting in God—in his goodness, his total control, and his plans. And it’s the result of fearing God: We recognize God’s supremacy, goodness, and control, and so we trust him. “You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord!” (Psalm 115:11).
Remember that the circumstances in your life may be just a detour — not the destination.God promises to work all things out for our good.
My final word of encouragement for you would be: Don’t. Give. Up. Don’t give up even when waiting on God seems endless. Walk by faith and not by sight.
“Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:30
If you haven’t trusted in Christ and received saving faith after repentance, then you are walking by sight, in reality, you’re still walking in darkness (Eph 5:8).
God’s Word is always “a lamp to [your] feet and a light to [your] path” (Psalm 119:1-5).
