For we walk by faith, not by sight …2 Corinthians 5:7
Faith is an action word. Every day we put our faith in action in believing that when we drive our vehicle that it will get us to our destination. We believe that as we sit in a chair we have faith that it will hold us. We also have faith that when our payroll check is direct deposit into our bank account, that it’s in our account, and we will take funds out of it by writing a check or by using our debit card. So why do we lack faith when it comes to God? Abraham had faith in God. God told him to leave his country and from his family unto a land where he would show him. How did Abraham show his faith? By doing just what God told him to do. He gathered up his belongings, his wife, and his nephew Lot and left. I can imagine if God had told some of us to do this, we would be questioning him by saying, “Is that really you God speaking to me?”
To have faith, we must see with our spiritual eyes and not with our natural eyes. We have to use our “Now Faith” and have confidence in the things we hope for even though we cannot see it in the natural. Unless we have faith, it’s impossible to please God. For us to be able to approach Him, we must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
