Faith in the unseen


In a world that revolves around the ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ mentality, the power of ‘faith’ can so easily be lost.  

We all lean on and trust in what we can see.  So many people live behind a wall of restriction that is built by self-reliance, self-knowledge and self-understanding.  As believers, we are told that we are to live and walk by faith, not by sight.  

We must continually check to make sure we are keeping ourselves in the land of God’s guidance instead of our own.  When we step out in faith and obedience to God’s Word, we will land on solid ground because we are fulfilling His will in our lives.  It’s a faith and trust that we can never have on our own.  It’s something that, by being His children, He gives us new eyes in our spirit and a heart that is activated by faith, courage and belief that He will keep His promises.  

Do we trust, day by day, that God will provide for us?  Do we hope for the future and believe that God will meet whatever needs we will have?  God knows the desires of our hearts.  He knows what provisions we need. 

Living by faith will always lead you to the solid ground of grace and truth.  

Live by faith.  Not just by what you can see.
