TOPIC: WALK BY FAITH (1)
TEXT: 2 Corinthians 5:7 “For we walk by faith, not by sight…”
A blind man with a guide dog ‘walks by faith’ in his dog. He believes that what the dog sees will be translated into a signal that tell him when it’s time to go, stop, turn right or left. He picks up on those signals by holding the harness that connects him with the dog. Why does he trust the dog? It has something he doesn’t have: sight.
That’s the same with you and God. Today it might be unclear where God is taking you. The reason the blind man must hold the harness and stay connected to the dog. He may wonder, ‘Why am stopping at this corner so long? Perhaps there’s traffic coming and he is being protected from unseen danger. The Lord is re-affirming His word to you that, ‘l will bring the blind by a way they did not know….l will make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These things l will do for them, and not forsake them’ (Isaiah 42:16 NKJV). God has your tomorrow already planned out, even though you haven’t been there yet. He works outside of time, so He’s not held back by the limitations we labour with. The Apostle Paul also encourages us with this prayer, ‘I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can see something of the future He has called you to share…..It is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him in the place of honour at God’s right hand…’ (Ephesians 1:18-20).
