Walk By Faith
For we live by believing and not by seeing.-2 Corinthians 5:7
How short is this description of real Christians! Jesus was always, at all times, following the will of God, our Father. If it was in the will of God to keep on loving and teaching and healing, then Jesus never missed a beat. How did Jesus do this? He walked by faith.
Walking by faith means living life in light of eternal consequences, to fear God more than man; to obey the Bible even when it conflicts with what man commands; to choose righteousness over sin, no matter what the cost; to trust God in every circumstance; and to believe God rewards those who seek Him, regardless of who says otherwise. -Hebrews 11:6
Rather than loving the things of the world spend your life glorifying God in everything you do.-1 Corinthians 10:31 When you choose to base your life on the truth of God’s Word, rather than on the popular philosophy of your day, you are going against your natural inclinations. If you are walking by faith you will stop hoarding money, and give to those in need. -Luke 11:41 No matter what society says about sexual immorality being acceptable, base your standards on the unchangeable nature of God’s Word, which says any sex outside of marriage is sin. -Galatians 5:19 When sickness comes have the faith to believe you are healed and walk as if you are. These things I have mentioned are just to name a few. Tune your heart to the voice of the Holy Spirit and the truth of His Word.
Stop building your life around things that have no eternal significance. Stop pursuing the same things the world pursues, focus on the unseen realities such as Jesus and heaven. Walk by the will of God, and not by the will of man. Aim to please God in all things. You may lack in your faith, many will refuse to have faith; but no matter what we should still walk by faith.
Remember God is the cornerstone. He is your foundation. Choose to live according to what God reveals to you, rather than trust your own understanding.-Proverbs 3:5-6
Our God is a God of faith, and it takes faith to please Him.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith, though he died, he still speaks. By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God.-Hebrews 11:1-40
