We Walk by Faith and Not by Sight
For we walk by faith, not by sight.
In these eight words the apostle Paul is giving us great insight how to operate in faith and he is saying to be successful in the kingdom of God, because you have to walk by faith and not by what you see in the natural. We all have the power of God, the Holy Spirit abiding on the inside of us, ever present to empower the things that we say in faith, but the pressures of the natural realm are continually working against your faith and your confession.
2 Corinthians 4:10-12 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11 For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death is working in us, but life in you.
I get so excited reading and meditating on the word of God and to think that we are carrying around in our body the dying of the Lord Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. This is the great exchange setup by God the Father:
- The life of Jesus in exchange for yours
- He took on your sins for your redemption
- He took on sickness for your healing
- He took on poverty for your abundance
- He took on shame and humiliation so you could have victory
