WALKING BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT
"For we walk by faith, not by sight:"
II Corinthians 5:7 (KJV)
These penetrating words stand between two statements concerning the believer’s existence before and after death. They are:
"So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. ... we are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord." (II Corinthians 5:6, 8)
Paul places “ ... we walk by faith and not by sight:” here because one aspect of living by faith is belief in an invisible God who reigns in an invisible, spiritual world. Paul knows that at death he will go to this invisible God and invisible world because he entered the life of faith by first trusting Jesus as his Lord and Savior.
The word “walk” is in the progressive tense. This lifts the statement above its context and applies it to every area of life on a daily basis. All believers are either walking by faith or by sight.
When one walks by sight, he lives without the advantage of God’s higher thoughts and ways. In Isaiah 55:8-9 God says: "For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.”
Walking by sight leaves us making our own decisions without the benefit of the great wisdom of God. It leaves us attempting only what we in human strength can do.
When we walk by faith, we are guided by God’s higher thoughts and higher ways. We live in light of what God can do and not what we can do. We live in the atmosphere of the miraculous. When we walk by faith, we know there is a spirit world. And because we have placed our faith in Jesus, we are destined to live in heaven.
Some who have been saved by faith have not yet learned how to walk by faith but passionately desire to do so.
We do so by living out our union with Christ. When we experience our crucifixion, burial, and resurrection, we are freed from faith in ourselves and we will live out our lives walking in faith in God.

Please say this Prayer of Faith if you want or need more of God in your life:
Dear Heavenly Father,
I repent and come before you just as I am, with all my sins and faults. I confess
Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. I believe in my heart that you sent your Son,
Jesus Christ to die on the cross for me and on the third day you raised him from
the dead. I thank you Lord, for receiving me now, forgiving me, healing me,
protecting me, making my life brand new, and for writing my name in the book of life.
In the powerful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
