2 Corinthians 5:7
Indeed, our lives are guided by faith, not by sight.
Are you walking by faith, or are you walking by sight? Walking by sight means our decisions in life are determined (guided) by what we see in the natural, and what man tells us, instead of what God has told us in His Word. It is allowing our circumstances in life to dictate how we live. Walking by sight is making the choice to believe what we are seeing above what God has said.
To walk by faith we must walk in line with the Word of God. Faith believes in the heart, speaks with the mouth, and acts in line with God’s Word. Once you know what the Word of God says about any situation you may face in life, you must then settle it in your heart to believe the Word above all else you see in the natural; and then act as if it is so because God’s Word is the Truth, and that Truth acted on in faith will set you free.
Walking by faith does not mean we deny what may be true in the natural, but we choose God’s Truth instead. We choose to believe and act in line with the Truth of God’s Word. Walking by faith is how we fulfill God’s will and reign in life through Christ Jesus, and as 1 John 5:4 tells us, this is how we walk in victory over the things of this world, by our faith. Walk by faith believer and not by sight, and you will walk in what God has said is already yours.
