for we walk by faith, not by sight
(2 Corinthians 5:7 (NAS))
When things in this world look like they can’t get any worse, do you give up or do you walk confident in the promises that God has given?
When it seems that the whole world has gone crazy, do you hold fast to the truth or do you through your hands up in frustration?
When you are ridiculed for your faith in Jesus, do you make excuses or do you cling tightly to Jesus?
It is a matter of priorities!
It is a matter of trust!
It is a matter of faith!
It is so easy to be overwhelmed by the things that are going on in the world. I see people every day who are literally on the edge of giving up or who have given up. All of this is due to the fact that they are looking at the world through physical eyes. That is what Satan wants us to do. He wants us to focus on what we can see. He knows that if we focus on what we can see, then we will soon forget the promises that God has made and we will give up on God.
Remember these words when you are walking through difficult times.
Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
(Psalms 23:4-6 (NIV))
Walk by faith and keep your eyes focused on Jesus!
