2 Corinthians 5:7
"We live by faith, not by sight." NIV
"For we walk by faith, not by sight." KJV
It is truly difficult to live happily and contentedly in this world. As children of God, we don't live our lives by what the path looks like or by following our instincts. We go forward trusting in His Word and His promises to us, without seeing Him. This way of living is not natural to humans. It can only be done by a special work of Christ through His Holy Spirit. It is a common spiritual nature for one born of God.
Heavenly Father, forgive us for those times we have walked by the way that seemed right to us or the way others were going. Help us to walk by the faith you have freely given us to do your will. We ask in Jesus' name. Amen.
