Unlimited: By Faith, Not by Sight

Oct 14, 2019 657

We live by faith, not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7, NIV).

The early explorers who discovered the Americas believed that there was land beyond the horizon. How can we believe in heaven, beyond the horizon of this earth?

The answer is this: when all we see is earth, we must look higher. The Word of God tells us to “live by faith, not by sight.” The Bible tells us that Moses was an illustration of how this works.

“Moses, by faith… left Egypt, not fearing the king’s anger; he persevered because he saw him who is invisible” (Hebrews 11:27, NIV).

When you look higher, through spiritual eyes, we can see him who is invisible: you can see God.

Scientific materialism tells us that the only things which exist are those which can be discerned through our five senses. If we can touch it or see it, it must be real.

But God teaches us differently. He teaches us that there is a reality that lies beyond the material world in which we live. This unseen reality is superior to that which is seen, as Scripture says,

“We fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal” (2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV).

Eli’s Reflection: It’s easy to say you believe, but do you live according to your spiritual sight or merely according to the physical? Really?

Thanks for sharing this particular scripture. I'm blessed because yesterday I was sharing this particular bible verse with my spouse (wife) regarding temporarely healing of sicknesses through what we see with our physical eyes, and permanent healing that comes only through faith in the word of God.

Dear Dr. Eli, thank you so much for sharing your reflection on living by faith. Indeed as children of God we are called to live by faith not by sight everyday of our lives as evidence of our Trust & confidence in our Almighty God by being guided by His word thereby living according to His word. Looking forward for the many insights you'll share ahead. May we always find joy in doing His will in our lives. May God bless us always!
