Walking by Faith and not by sight is a great way to begin your day.
As we go about our day, most of us see homeless people, people begging for food, people being rude and mean to others, people stressed out and anxiety ridden, and people engulfed by hate and violence, but we cannot let that destroy our spirit. Satan is attempting to flatline us. These are the things of the world that represent the dark times. However, fear not, the Lord is our comforter especially in times of trouble. Paul wrote, in 2 Corinthians 4:16, 18, that outwardly we may be wasting away, yet inward, we are being renewed day by day; we fix our eyes not on want is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary and what is not seen is eternal.
Our Lord clarified that we live in the world, but are not of the world. It is our responsibility, as followers of Christ, to present a Christ-like persona, regardless of what the world is presenting as reality. We must live by faith and be the glow in the room. The glow is the Holy Spirit flowing out of us. Our challenge is to help when we can, greet people as we walk by, pray for everyone, and use the Fruit as the Spirit to walk in the Word and live by faith. Our walk defines how we live, how we act, and how we conduct ourselves. As Paul wrote to the Ephesians 5:1, “therefore be imitators of God.” When we live by faith, we live in perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Living by faith is fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfector of our faith. (Hebrews 12:1-3). Faith Anchors Us To God.
