“Now the just shall live by faith” (Hebrews 10:38).
“For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7).
Good eyesight is a real asset, and certainly physical sight is vital to walk with confidence in this physical world. Without sight we grope; we stumble; we fall; we get injured. But faith or spiritual eyesight, not physical sight is what enables us to walk confidently in the spiritual realm. Faith counts on God for each step of the way, believing that He is good, loving, and directing according to His wisdom and what He sees and knows is best for us.
Faith trusts God who is not seen by the physical eye, but who is no less real to the spiritual eye of faith. Faith believes in spite of circumstances, and in spite of hindrances, resistance, and opposition from the enemy. Like Moses, of whom we read, “By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing Him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27). We have trusted Him for our salvation, now let’s walk by faith until we are safe home in the Father’s house. Then we won’t need faith anymore, “but then face to face” (1 Corinthians 13:12).
