We Walk By Faith And Not By Sight

"We "We walk by Faith and not by sight!" (2 Corinthians 5:7). This is one of my favorite verses from Sacred Scripture and it's a timeless message that God has given us that has guided me throughout my entire life, and I know always will!

What does it mean to walk by Faith and not by sight?  I believe it means that we cannot live our lives depending on the sight that our earthly eyes give us alone, but the even greater sight that God gives to the eyes of our hearts, "Our eyes of Faith." It means to walk by what we believe, by all God has taught us and all the divine Truth and Love that dwells in our hearts.  It means to live our lives from the deepest place within us, where God dwells, and allow Him to be our true Guide in life... even when it is most difficult to do so, because caution and fear may tell us otherwise.

To truly walk and live by Faith we must have courage of the greatest kind imaginable! Faith goes beyond all reason and rhyme.  And the amazing things that Faith can do just may not even seem possible to the human mind, yet, Faith creates everyday miracles, both big and small in the lives of those who embrace it and practice it regularly. It can literally move mountains, make the blind regain their sight, and even raise the dead. 

When Jesus walked this Earth, He performed all kinds of miracles for people, (for people who had Faith, that is!). He said that He was not able to perform miracles at times because the people lacked Faith in Him to make them happen.  This must of made Jesus very sad, because He came that we might have Life and have it abundantly! He wanted to heal so many people... yet, He could only do so if they bravely exhibited their Faith... walking and living by Faith and not by sight!

I truly believe that Jesus continues to walk this very Earth, here among us, in Spirit... and He still longs to perform miracles of all kinds, (both big and small in people's lives), though, He is looking for Faith in the hearts of God's people... for He cannot do anything, unless we first have Faith in Him and in God!

May we always walk by Faith and not by sight... and may Jesus find in us, such strong Faith that He will be able to perform the true miracles we need and pray for! Amen.
