We walk by faith—and not by sight.


"We walk by faith—and not by sight." 2 Corinthians 5:7

"The life which I now live in the flesh—I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me!" This language should fittingly express the life of every child of God. Our life as Christians should be one of habitual dependence on the Lord Jesus Christ . . .
  for wisdom,
  for righteousness,
  for sanctification,
  and for redemption.

As we live by faith—we shall stand by faith on the rock of God's unfailing truth.

As we walk by faith, and not by sight—we shall go forward in our course homeward, heavenward, resting on the exceeding great and precious promises; and looking for that city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Walking by faith, and not by sight—we shall . . .
  be preserved amid all that is outwardly glittering and attractive,
overcome the world, with its fascinations and snares,
  be sustained amidst all that appears discouraging in the service of Christ,
  be cheered in the day of adversity, and
  be comforted in the hour of sorrow.

If we walk by sight —we may sometimes conclude that all things are against us. But looking unto Jesus, and walking by faith —we shall know that all things work together for our good! In the midst of the troublous storms of life—we shall rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

O Lord, increase our faith!

"Help me to walk my course below
  In faith, and not by sight;
  To lean upon Your unseen grace,
  And trust Your unseen might!"
