As Christians, we walk by faith, not by sight. What does that mean, though? How can we walk by faith? This is the second devotion in the Seeing By Faith Devotional Series.
Not By Sight
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.” – 2 Corinthians 5:7
The Christian life is not about deciding to have faith in Jesus one day, and then maintaining the same amount of faith forever.
The Christian life is a journey. We grow in faith as we walk through life with Jesus by our side. Faith is a dynamic and organic current that transforms us from the inside out.
Walking by faith is a moment by moment intentionality of putting our faith in God’s word, instead of turning to what is the visible reality around us.
And it’s this faith that I want my children to experience. I don’t want the faith they have now at the ages of nine, seven and six to be the same as ten years from now. I pray that as they grow, they will gain deeper understanding of the Bible and increasingly put their faith in God as they walk through life.
So my prayer is that as I grow in faith, I impact my children’s lives and they too blossom in their faith in Jesus.
Questions for reflection
- When do you notice your faith growing more? What experiences help stretch your faith muscles?
- Think of a recent situation in which God tested your faith. What lessons did you learn that you can pass on to your children?
- How can you teach your children to act in faith?
Lord, stretch my faith and help me to really grow. Instead of giving way to anxiety, help my mind to be fixed on You and the wonders of Your love and provision. Help me trust in You with all my heart. Lord, may I teach my children by my example, and may they become faith-filled disciples.
