Living By Faith

2 Corinthians 5:7 “Walk by faith, not by sight.”

We are to live our lives in faith. To walk by sight is to live with a focus on physical things. It is to base our thoughts and emotions and actions on appearances. To live by faith is to approach life in the Spirit and not in the flesh as those who are without God do. It is to live life with a focus on God and spiritual things. It is to trust God with every moment of every day with whatever happens. When things happen we should seek God’s guidance and help. “Without faith it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6). “He that comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him(Hebrews 11:6). He rewards us with an awareness of His presence, an uplifting of our spirit, a renewing of our mind, and a confidence to face and deal with whatever comes alone.
