Walking By Sight – Not By Faith

I quoted this verse backwards to what it actually says, “We walk by faith, not by sight”
(2 Corinthians 5:7).

Why I put this verse this way is because we sometimes walk by sight and not faith. We are often overwhelmed by life, things pile one upon another, and we LOOK at these troubles instead of the God who sent them.

When we walk by sight all we see is vanity, and vexation. We get depressed, discouraged, despondent, anxious and often angry.

What do we do when we are in this state?

I’ll tell you what we do; we begin to call on our Lord Jesus, and God our Father for forgiveness for being this way. We call on him for strength, grace, and mercy. We plead for guidance and wisdom to live to His glory, and to quit looking at our circumstances and instead LOOK to the God of our circumstances.

May our Lord enable us to “walk by faith, not sight”.

I need thee oh I need thee
Every hour I need thee
Oh bless me now my Saviour
I come to thee
