(For we walk by faith, not by sight:) (2 Corinthians 5:7).

The opening verse is in parenthesis, because Paul was discussing another subject earlier. While on that, he referenced a principle by the side, because he was addressing Christians, and its normal for Christians to walk and live by faith. Faith isnt just something you require when theres a need; its our lifestyle; something we do all the time. In Christianity, we walk by faith, not by sight; our eyes are always on the Word, not circumstances or what the senses tell us.


Now, to tell someone, You must breathe to stay alive, is almost not necessary. You dont breathe sometimes, and choose not to breathe some other times; you breathe all the time to live in the earth. In the same way, to live in the realm of the spirit, with respect to God you must walk by faith. Thats our normal life in Christianity. Walking by faith is living by the Word. No wonder Jesus said, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4).

Someone might say, Well, if God could just give me faith, Ill walk by it! As a Christian, you already have faith; you need not struggle for faith, for faith came to you when you received the Gospel. Romans 12:3 says, For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith. Notice who Paul was addressing: every man that is among you. That means everyone in the Churchnot to everybody in the world.

Every Christian has faith; and no matter how small that faith is, it can move mountains. Jesus said, verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you (Matthew 17:20). So, dont think your faith is too small; even the smallest faith is powerful enough to move mountains. But you must grow your faith; the more you learn and act on the Word, the more your faith grows and becomes strengthened.

Always remind yourself that faith is the realm in which you walk; you dont walk by your sensory perception, but through your spirit!

PRAYER

Dear Father, I thank you for granting me prevailing faith. I dont judge situations or circumstances from the natural standpoint or with my senses, but I see from the perspective of your Word. I live joyfully and triumphantly today by the Spirit, in Jesus Name. Amen.

Further Study: || 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. ||

|| Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. ||
