Walk By Faith, Not By Sight!
As Christians, our walk must be by faith – not by sight! 2 Cor 5:7 says:
For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
That means we don’t walk according to the natural ways of doing things, but of trusting God. Our God is the only One who has the last word – NOT the media and DEFINITELY not others!
If we’re going through a difficulty in our life, we look to God for working it out. Too many Christians are looking to the world for solutions that only a loving God can provide! I’ve heard the term “natural solutions to a spiritual problem” – they’re right!
When are we going to stop looking to the news media – or even to Christian televangelists – for the answers? Cos’ let’s face it, when something happens to us, who are we going to call? The guy on the 6 o’clock news with slicked-back hair? Or the televangelist who has houses in every corner of the world? They’re not gonna be able to help us!
Looking to our Lord and to His Word – that’s the ONLY way! God WILL provide, he WILL make a way, and He WILL work out ALL things for the good of those who are called by Him! That’s you and me, by the way….
So let’s stop expecting the TV news media or tv evangelists to solve our problems. They’re not. In fact, many times, the TV news media tries to scare us with bad news or terrifying situations. We know better! Or how about the TV evangelist who says if we send him $1,000, that we’re gonna get blessed??
No way – it don’t work like that! (now before you get on my case, I appreciate watching Christian ministers on TV – but that’s where it ends – they’re on TV. They’re not coming to your house or mine!)
God can come to us in the midst of any situation at any time – IF WE CALL ON HIM!
So STOP looking to the world for solutions – start walking by faith and not by sight!
