Walking by Faith

2 Corinthians 5:7 we walk by faith, not by sight. 

We walk by faith in his truth in our day to day activities. We walk not by sight for our security lies not in what we see because we are secured by his truth. His truth gives us the confidence that he will always be there for us, for it is written I will never leave you nor forsake you. Just knowing that we have the God of all creation inside of us gives us the surety that no matter what the world throws at us, we are more than conquerors over every trial or heartache or setback from the enemy of our souls. This world as nothing on us for in Christ we are unstoppable and unmovable rock of his truth.

Carnal or Spiritual

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. 

At the point of salvation when we believed, the seed of the Holy Spirit is planted inside of us. The growth of that seed depends on you the new believer. What you focus on will depend on whether you will continue as a carnal Christian or move forward into maturity as a spiritual Christian. The less we conform or follow the ways of the world and the more we are renewed in knowledge of Gods truth the more we will be able to know and understand what God’s will is for our lives. According to Andrew Murray it’s pretty simple to know which one you are. “The Christian who walks in the spirit, and has crucified the flesh, is spiritual (Galatians 5:24). The Christian who walks after the flesh, and wishes to please the flesh, is carnal (Romans 13:14).” Here is an easy tip to know whether you are carnal or spiritual. I quote Andrew Murray, “One of the signs of this is that there is little pleasure or perseverance in fellowship with Christ through prayer. Love of prayer is one of the marks of the spirit.”

Our Names Are Written

Psalm 20:5 We will rejoice in your salvation

Our salvation should make us rejoice daily for we were chosen by God and we accepted his gift of eternal life and our names are written in the lambs book of life. We escaped his terrible wrath in a burning fiery hell. Everything God does for us is out of a heart of love, either to teach us his way or show us how real he can be in the midst of the valleys of life. Never focus on the problems of your past, but rather focus on what Jesus has already done for you, and giving you salvation free from the pain of sin. Keep your focus on him always for is life.
