Scripture Reading: 2Cor 5:7
For we walk by faith, not by sight
Reflections: Apostle Paul reminds us that we are to walk by faith and not by sight. The word ‘walk’ in Greek means to follow a specific life course or conduct oneself in a certain way. On the other hand, the term ‘faith’ denotes trust in and reliance on what God says. From this, we understand that when a Christian walks by faith, his daily life is predominantly governed by what God says and not what the world dictates or is seen naturally. Ultimately faith enables you to walk in agreement with the counsel of God! The story of the twelve spies underscores this. Despite God’s counsel that Israel would possess Canaan, ten of the spies saw the giants of the land and concluded that the land of Canaan could not be conquered. They gave up on God’s words and lost out on God’s blessings. The other two spies looked at the giants with faith instead of sight and affirmed that the giants were going to be no match for Israel (Number 13). They, therefore, connected to what was in line with the counsel of God and got blessed by God. Always walk by faith and not by sight!
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me operate with the eye of faith.
Confession: I walk by faith and not by sight.
