For we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]--
2 CORINTHIANS 5:7 AMP
For we live by believing and not by seeing.
2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT
Now faith is the assurance (title deed, confirmation) of things hoped for (divinely guaranteed), and the evidence of things not seen [the conviction of their reality--faith comprehends as fact what cannot be experienced by the physical senses].
HEBREWS 11:1 AMP
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see.
Hebrews 11:1 NLT
To walk by faith is to live, act and move in obedience to what God has told you to do even when it seems crazy to you or even impossible. We have to be like Mary, she demonstrated pure faith and obedience by saying, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” Walking by faith requires courage and strength. You have to become fearless of what man shall do or say unto you. You will become misunderstand, rejected by friends and family. You must be willing to become a slave, servant to the Lord Jesus Christ. You must be willing to call those things that be not as though they were. Meaning you don't see it but you have to believe IT! To trust God in every situation, To trust God in every circumstance. You must be willing to live by faith when you can't see in the natural where what you are going through makes any sense at all. As a child of God it won't make sense it has to be faith! To walk by faith when your body is recking with pain or you received a negative report from the Dr. that say's you will not live out the rest of the year. But God's word says I SHALL LIVE AND NOT DIE AND DECLARE THE WORKS OF THE LORD! To walk by faith is when you were diagnosed with cervical cancer and a biopsy was taken and came out to a #3 and they wanted to abort your baby and give you a hysterectomy but you said by the stripes of Jesus I'M HEALED and you were HEALED supernaturally without taking any chemo. God's Word is true and let every man be a liar when it contradicts the WORD OF THE LIVING GOD! ALSO: Walking by faith and not by sight requires you to go to a place you do not know, one that God will reveal as you walk in obedience. Just look to Abraham as an example (Genesis 12:1).
Walking by faith means that you continue to cling to the dreams God has planted in your heart, even when you’ve been thrown away, taken to prison for crimes you didn’t commit. Just look at all Joseph endured (Genesis 37-50).
Walking by faith requires a strong determination to follow God’s plan regardless what life throws your way. Look to Daniel to discover how to have the resolve not to sin (Daniel 1:8). Walking by Faith is Walking by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (His Word). (Hebrews 11:6
Romans 8:6 tells us to be carnally minded is death. The carnally mind is the mind not regulated by the Word of God. You will either be obedient to the lust of the flesh or to the Word of God. It's your choice...
The Bible in Galatians 5:16-17, 25 tells us to Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh and the only way to be able to walk in the Spirit is by faith...
Why because the things that are seen are temporal subject to change but the things that are unseen are eternal. So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.
2 Corinthians 4:18 NLT
https://bible.com/bible/116/2co.4.18.NLT Amen to that.
How can we walk by faith, when so much is going on to keep us distracted from the Faith walk.
1. Read His Word daily:
2. Confessions (decrees)
3. Pray (talk to God daily)
4. Fast (push back the plate)
6. Be Thankful
For us to walk by faith we cannot do as the World says "seeing is believing". God says "believing is seeing" the very opposite of the World.
1. Pay attention to what I say.
2. Listen carefully to my words.
3. Don’t lose sight of them.
4. Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
5. For they bring life to those who find them,
6. Healing to their whole body.
7. Guard your heart above all else,
8. It determines the course of your life.
9. Avoid all perverse talk;
10. Stay away from corrupt speech.
11. Look straight ahead,
12. and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
13. Mark out a straight path for your feet;
14. Stay on the safe path.
15. Don’t get sidetracked;
16. Keep your feet from following evil.
Proverbs 4:20-27 NLT
And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 NLT
CHILD OF GOD THE QUESTION TO YOU TODAY IS:
WILL YOU TRUST GOD TO WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT...
