The message contained in this Blog is simple yet very profound, and is the basic message of faith to the church today.
So many Christians have the attitude: I’ll believe it when I see it.
But God’s Word teaches us to believe it first and then you’ll see it.
In other words we are to walk by faith in God’s Word first, before we actually see anything with our physical eyes.
In John 8:32 Jesus said, "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
What Jesus meant there was a working knowledge of truth would keep us free from the wiles of the enemy, who was out to trap us.
Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:5-10 "Now He, who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. 6 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. 7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. 9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad."
Now notice some very important things Paul says here. Vs. 7 "For we walk by FAITH, not by SIGHT."
Many of us walk by our sight [senses] and not by what God says in His Word at various times in our lives. Sometimes, we wait for our bodies to show signs of healing before we confess we are healed. Then, other times we wait for the $XXX to show up in our bank account before we confess we have our inheritance and all we need financially.
REMEMBER this thought - Faith is what you have when you don’t have what you want.
What I want you to understand today is, walking by faith is in fact walking by INSIGHT, rather than by sight.
