WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT
Faith assures us of things we expect and convinces us of the existence of things we cannot see. God accepted our ancestors because of their faith. Faith convinces us that God created the world through His Word. This means what can be seen was made by something that could not be seen. God’s Faith…we must have it! Paul tells us: 17 So then Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10:17. We receive God’s Faith through God’s Word. God’s Word is two things: It is the Written Word and it is the Living Word. Walk By Faith And Not By Sight!!!!
Noah build an ark for a flood when it had never even rained on earth. (7 By faith [with confidence in God and His word] Noah, being warned by God about events not yet seen, in reverence prepared an ark for the salvation of his family. By this [act of obedience] he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness which comes by faith. Heb. 11:7)
Promise to Abraham by Faith
16 Therefore, [inheriting] the promise depends entirely on faith [that is, confident trust in the unseen God], in order that it may be given as an act of grace [His unmerited favor and mercy], so that the promise will be [legally] guaranteed to all the descendants [of Abraham]—not only for those [Jewish believers] who keep the Law, but also for those [Gentile believers] who share the faith of Abraham, who is the [spiritual] father of us all— Rom. 4:16
Jesus laid down His life that you would be assured of one thing, that God will supply all your need. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Phil. 4:19. Before the foundation of the world God knew what you would need and He gave provisions for it through Christ Jesus. Through deliberate sin, God wanted us to believe that He still yet provides. 15 That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:15-16. Walk By Faith And Not By Sight!
We must walk by Faith and know that God will take care of you. 10 Fear thou not; for I AM with thee: be not dismayed; for I AM thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My righteousness. Isaiah 41:10. When you find yourself in a place of trouble, know that God will take care of you and hide you beneath His wings. Where ever you are, know that the Truth of His Word stands.
He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
REMINDER: WALK BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT!!!!
Love you and the Blessings of God be upon you
