We Walk By Faith Not By Sight

“Many people miss out on experiencing God’s mighty power because they will not act unless they can see how everything will work out. They want to walk by sight but God has called us to walk by faith and faith requires action” Henry Blackaby

The Bible challenges us to “walk by faith, not by sight.” This task is as unnatural as walking with our eyes closed. God says clearly in His Word, that we have to make the choice every day to walk by faith, not by sight. In order to

The Power Of God

overcome today’s pressures, you will have to walk by faith. I, personally, would not want to be living in this decade that we are living in right now without knowing Jesus and without having a firm grip on the Word of God; the power of the Word of God!

Living by faith is not a movement! It is a lifestyle.

God is looking for an army of believers who are consistently walking in the Word. You may be the only representation of Jesus that some people see. They need to see people who are stable, joyful, and peaceful. Stability, consistency, and discipline draw people to Christ.

People are so busy with their own lives today. They’re going to church, but their mind is on the afternoon football game. They are driving past people who need Jesus every day, but their mind is on stopping at the next Starbucks for a coffee. They might go right past someone who needs help because they are too busy thinking about themselves.

It seems that there just aren’t many people who really hunger for God-like faith, the kind of faith that heals and moves mountains problems in the sea. Think about it. How many people walking the earth today could be compared to the faith giants of a long time ago?

Men like John G. Lake, Smith Wigglesworth, Billy Joe Daugherty, Maria Woodward Etter, Oral Roberts and all those others who could be listed in “Gods Faith Hall of Fame,” if there were such a thing. I love reading about the faith-filled men throughout history. Billy Joe Daugherty was my pastor for 6 years. It was a privilege to sit under his teachings. He was a very, very special man.

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.” – General George S. Patton, Jr. I thank God that these men lived and gave us so much insight on how to live by faith and to live victoriously. They were not perfect and each was still a product of his time and generation, but they were fiercely committed to bringing the gospel to the world and fiercely committed to their faith in God.

The hunger for God-like faith was insatiable and it caused them to be men of great influence. They changed the world around them for the better.

Do you know what all those great faith-giants have in common? They’re dead! Yes, they all moved on to Heaven. So, who will be the faith giants of the next generation? Who will grab the flaming torch handed down by our forefathers of faith and run with passion toward the mark? Who will stand up and say, “I am right here and I am ready to go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. I am ready to evangelize and support evangelism! I want to see people healed, saved and set free by the Power of God!”

Who will be the next faith giant? It can be you. Many believers would love to have lived the lives of some of the men and women mentioned above. They admire such loyal commitment to God and they would love to be just like them, seeing miraculous acts of faith and power. Yet, as much as some believers admire others, many seem to go through their Christian lives with only one thing in mind: to have faith.

Faith is like the perfect pair of running shoes. It’s going to get you to the finish line quicker than running barefoot ever would! Faith is the supernatural force that gives you the help and endurance you need to go through life at a strong and steady pace.

It’s up to us; the power of choice has been given to us. Do we live by faith or do we live by our own circumstances. Do we only say “we have faith” or do we use our faith to get the supernatural force in our life to remove burdens and destroy yokes, remove mountains in the lives of others and in our own life?
