Beyond What the Eyes Can See

For we walk by faith, not by sight.  2 Corinthian 5:7 NKJV

beyond what the eyes can seeDuring the winter, I traveled two hours away with friends to an event. We decided not to stay overnight because of the ominous weather forecast. As we started our return trip home, the snow started sooner than expected and soon obstructed our view of the road.

My friend’s husband not only had to drive at night but also had to maneuver blizzard-like conditions. I am sure he stressed about driving, keeping his riders safe, and dealing with an anxious wife—who helped him navigate the snow-covered road and defrosted the windows. He was familiar with the route but still found it difficult to see the road. Thankfully, we made it home safely and felt relieved.

Periodically, navigating life can be difficult, and life does not always make sense. We face unforeseen situations. We make plans about the future—plans that are often voided or altered. It appears as if everything has moved beyond what our eyes can see.

We benefitted because our driver was familiar with the road, which enabled him to drive through the snowstorm. We can also be thankful we have Jesus Christ, who teaches us to walk by faith, not sight. We can trust Him to direct our paths so that we can keep moving even when we cannot see what is ahead. Our confidence should be in Him, the author of our lives, who knows the beginning and the end and only wants what is best for us. What a blessing.

We do not have to be discouraged or feel anxious when making decisions or deciding on which path to take. A relationship with Jesus Christ teaches us to trust and believe in His Word and promises. We can pray and experience an open and intimate dialogue with Him. We also have the gift of the Holy Spirit. We are well-equipped and never alone. Jesus always walks with us.

Trust God to help you walk by faith, not sight.
