My wife works at one of the major Universities here in Southern California and from time to time I go and meet her on campus for lunch. While driving up Campus Dr. to her office I usually see students walking in every direction on campus.
The majority of these students are walking by faith (walking while looking down at some type of handheld device). The students seem totally oblivious to what’s going on around them. I’ve seen students accidentally walk through sprinkler systems, I’ve seen them walk in front of bicyclists, and I’ve seen them walk out in front of cars while texting. What an amazing example of walking by faith! Can you imagine living a life where you’re so focused on God and His Word that you’re totally oblivious to life’s problems, threats, or attacks taking place around you? That’s the kind of walk I want to have with God!
Walking by faith means that we aren’t moved by what we see going on around us. We are to walk by a higher authority than what we can see.
While we look not at the thing which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Faith See’s the Unseen
Walking by faith means that we aren’t moved by what we see going on around us. In fact, if we focus on the events that we see and hear going on around us, it will spark fear in us. Just watch the evening news for 1 hour and you’ll understand what I mean. We are to walk by a higher authority than what we can see. We walk by faith (Gods Word), not by what we can perceive with our senses.
The next time you face a situation where you’re temped to be moved off of Gods Word by the circumstances around you, I encourage you to get into the bible and find out what God says about your circumstances and focus on His word like a texter focuses on texting. Walk by faith and only allow His Word to grab your attention.
Before you know it you’ll find that your problem is behind you and you’ll have a testimony to share with others!
