We Walk By Faith

2 CORINTHIANS 5:7 NKJ
7 For we walk by faith, not by sight.

God's plan for us as His children here on earth is that our
walk with Him be a walk of faith.

Faith has to do with things that are not seen, or perceived
with our physical senses.

HEBREWS 11:1 NKJ
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence
of things not seen.

God's Word is our evidence for our faith. We know God cannot
lie. Whatever God says -- if it is not already evident to our
physical senses -- will eventually come to pass. For whatever
God says comes to pass. According to the Bible, God only had to
speak and the universe was created.

You will never grow strong spiritually until you learn to put
what God says in His Word ahead of what your circumstances and
physical senses tell you.

God does not ask you to deny what your physical senses tell
you, but to believe His Word above all other evidence. God
simply wants you to believe that He tells the truth.

In this regard, the Bible tells us Abraham was an example of
faith.

ROMANS 4:19-21 NKJ
19 And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own
body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old),
and the deadness of Sarah's womb.
20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but
was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God,
21 and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was
also able to perform.

God told Abraham he would be a father of many nations, yet
Abraham had no children and his wife was too old to have
children. Abraham still believed God's promise, and it came to
pass. Faith is no different for us today. God is speaking to
us through His Word, the Bible, and when we believe what God
said, impossible things become possible.

As we keep our focus on God and His Word, we can be fully
convinced, like Abraham, that God is able to do all He has
said. For faith comes by hearing the Word (Romans 10:17).

Unbelief is the opposite of faith and Scripture calls it evil
(Hebrews 3:12). The only cure for unbelief is correct teaching
of the truth from God's Word (Mark 6:6).

COLOSSIANS 2:6 NKJ
6 As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so
walk in Him,

We receive Jesus Christ by faith, and we must continue to walk
our whole Christian life here on earth by faith. That means we
can't base everything on our physical sense knowledge, instead
of what God has said.

SAY THIS: I will walk with God by faith here on earth.

2 Corinthians 5:20

We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were
making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's
behalf: Be reconciled to God.

Rejoice In Hope

ROMANS 5:2 NKJ
2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in
which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

We may not always have good circumstances around us that would
cause us to rejoice. But we can always rejoice in hope.

What is hope?

Hope is a positive expectation for the future. Things may not
be great now, but you can have a hope that the future will be
better. (Hope is always future, by definition, but can be in
the near future -- not just when we get to Heaven.)

According to Romans 8:24, hope involves what is not seen. The
only way humans have of dealing with things that are unseen is
by using our imagination.

Hope is not seen, or detectable by our physical senses. Hope is
a positive imagination, something we can only see inwardly.

As Christian believers we can rejoice in hope. We can rejoice
when circumstances are not perfect. We can rejoice ahead of
time.

ROMANS 12:12 NRS
12 Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in
prayer.

As we mature as Christians, we are not to be controlled
exclusively by our physical senses. Being controlled by the
physical senses is what the Bible refers to as being "carnally
minded."

Because we believe what God has said, we know that we have a
bright future. A glorious future with God! In this we can, and
should, rejoice now!

And as we rejoice in hope, our present situation will also be
affected for good.

SAY THIS: I will rejoice even before I physically see victory.

You Choose!

DEUTERONOMY 30:19 NKJ
19 "I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you,

that I have set before you life and death, blessing and
cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your
descendants may live;

Most people don't realize that God has given them the power to
choose whether they will be blessed.

We choose whether to go God's way and be blessed, or ignore God
and go our own way and reap the unfortunate consequences.

God has given humans an amazing freedom to make choices. God
does not force blessing on us -- we must choose blessing by
choosing God and His ways.

God did not create us to be puppets, robots, or slaves. God
desires a family He can fellowship with. There would be no joy
in being loved by a robot who had no choice, so God created us
with the freedom and the right to make choices.

With our right to make choices also came the responsibility to
make them. So we must make choices. God does not make our
choices for us.

How do we choose life and blessing? By what we choose to think.
Our thoughts guide our actions. That is why feeding or
meditating on the Word of God is so vital. The thoughts we
allow to dominate our consciousness will determine the focus
and direction of our life.

We choose whom we will serve. We choose who and what will
influence and thus govern our thoughts and actions.

JOSHUA 24:15 NKJ
15 "... choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve ....
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."

When you make a choice, you need to express it by your words.
You need to speak and let the universe know where you stand.

SAY THIS: I choose God. I choose blessing. I choose life. I
choose health. I choose prosperity. I choose Jesus Christ as my

2 Kings 6:17

And Elisha prayed, and said, "Lord, I pray, open his eyes that
he may see." Then the Lord opened the eyes of the young man,
and he saw. And behold, the mountain was full of horses and
chariots of fire all around Elisha.
