NOT BY SIGHT
“For we walk by Faith, not by sight.”2 Corinthians 5:7
It is a scientific fact that a white light if passed through a prism will produce 7 different shades of colours. In actual fact if one might be looking at a white light,but if looked through different lenses may produce different results.
That’s the idea of walking by Faith and not by sight. Such that through the eyes of faith we see from the divine perspective and not from our senses. Our discernment, judgement and evaluation of things are after the Spirit and not the flesh.
This is what distinguishes maturing believers from baby Believers. Their discernment have Been sharpened by reason on use. Hebrews 5:14.
This is not to say we suspended our senses but rather that we give ascendancy to our Spirit than we do to our senses.
Walking by Faith and not by sight Is a deliberate and conscious effort we must make practice of.
Let’s look at Our father Abraham in Romans 4:19 “And not being weak in Faith,HE DID NOT CONSIDER HIS OWN BODY,ALREADY DEAD ( since he was about a hundred years old) and the deadness of Sarah’s womb.
To walk not by sight is to not consider the environment or circumstances before us but rather hold on to God’s word and choose to live a life of Faith.
If we must live a triumphant life in Christ, this must be our disposition, to walk By Faith!
