2 Corinthians 5:7

"For we walk by faith, not by sight” (KJV)


For we walk (peripateo: go about, be occupied, make one's way, progress, conduct one's self) by faith (the conviction that God exists and is the creator and ruler of all things, the provider and bestower of eternal salvation through Christ; a strong conviction or belief that Jesus is the Messiah, through whom we obtain eternal salvation in the kingdom of God; the religious beliefs of Christians; belief with the predominate idea of trust in God) , not by sight (eidos: external or outward appearance) .”


For we go about and conduct ourselves by faith that God is in control, not by the way things look to my natural eyes.


Today is another opportunity to live putting your complete trust and reliance upon the Lord. Forget how things look on the outside - whether pleasant or discouraging. One guided by faith is not moved by circumstance and outward appearances, for God is always sure and faithful. Today, place your hope and trust in Him alone and begin establishing a life that is completely guided by faith in Him.

How else can one walk?

the simple act OF walking takes faith...

I remember what it feels like to try to live by feelings and emotions and eye sight.. never knowing if I'd be up or down or having any peace..
no thank you..never again.
