January 22 | Learning to Walk by Faith, Pt 1

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 

When God tells you the same thing three separate times, pay attention! The Word says that the just shall live by faith (See Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17; Galatians 3:11). This is not a suggestion for theological debate, it’s His will for your life. Without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him (Hebrews 11:6). 

Let’s take a moment and consider some questions arising from this life-transforming truth:

  • Who are ‘the just’? Paul writes, “Know that a person is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ. So, we too, have put our faith in Christ Jesus that we may be justified by faith” (Galatians 2:16). Justification can’t be earned, it’s a free gift that comes by faith. If you have placed your trust in Christ, then you are fully accepted in God’s eyes. 
  • What is ‘walking’? Paul says, “We walk by faith and not by sight.” Walking requires that you start moving. Walking involves motivation (you’re moved by a purpose), direction (you’ve chosen a destination, a goal to reach), and motion (you’re committed to mobilizing your energy and resources in the pursuit of your God-given destination and purpose). To walk by faith, you must be engaged in consistent, forward movement intended to bring you into God’s plan for your life.

Consider: Are you engaged in consistent, forward movement in your walk with the Lord? What excuses are you currently making to keep yourself stagnant? In your fast this week, exert yourself to action to hear His voice and obey immediately.
