When we choose to live by faith instead of living by sight, we are riding in the lifeboat instead of struggling, gasping and drowning in the turbulent ocean. God’s children need not choose to drown. I often catch myself saying things like: “I’m drowning in work,” or “I’m so far behind I’ll never catch up!” Why? It should not be so if God is my guide in everything and my faith is completely in Him. God is always on time and never overwhelmed!

When we spend our hour together in the morning, God resets any of my soul-switches flipped the day before by this crazy world. Then–as soon as I walk out the door–I’m bombarded with choices. Will I immediately begin consulting my Almighty Father because my faith in Him is greater than my faith in myself? When I do–I’m in the boat. When I don’t–I’m struggling to swim against the riptide of life. I basically choose to drown when I’m right next to the lifeboat! To be sure, living by sight is a habit which is difficult to break because our flesh is the “home” we live in and are used to! Knowing God gives us His perspective on the meaning of “home.” The Bible says: “So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight. Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him.” (2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:6-9‬)

Heaven is the final home for God’s children, and when we learn to live by faith in Him, we bring some heaven to earth. God’s promise to us is: “I, the Lord your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’” (Isaiah 41:13) Such precious promises from The Father! As I approach today, I want to do it holding God’s hand and listening for His help. This is faith in Him. To have it, we must seek Him. To hear Him, we must know Him. He holds the solution to our every problem AND has so many blessings waiting for us today!
