Talk is cheap. Living life based on what you can see is cheap. Walking faith is not easy and often “expensive.” You have to close your eyes and just walk. It takes faith.
As Paul says, “We walk by faith, not by sight.” (2 Corinthians 5:7)
It’s easy to live life just by sight. You live for the world and grab all the gusto there is. You live just for yourself and no tomorrow. The problem is that living by sight ironically leads to a dead end in life. It’s shallow and unfulfilling. That’s why so many people are unhappy—they hit one dead end after another.
Living by faith—what you can’t see but believe—is not easy. It’s tough. It takes leaps of faith and shutting out what you can see. However, it’s amazingly fulfilling when you do it for some time. And it leads to greater peace and joy in life. That’s because you realize there is something better and beyond this world. There’s a future of possibilities—not just dead ends.
Try walking faith. Get back to what Jesus said about how to live life and how Paul and others interrupted what Jesus said. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act (Psalm 37:5). But you have to commit—not half way but all the way! Have faith. Leap!
Have a great day walking faith!
