Walk By Faith
We live by faith, not by sight. —2 Corinthians 5:7 (niv)
I’m an overly cautious person. Unfortunately, that’s not a good trait when you’re trying to start a new ministry. My journal is crammed with my struggles to take the risks that go along with start-ups. One day I wrote to myself, “I need to pray often because I am always one doubt away from failing to act.”
A few days later, the word faith popped into my mind during my morning prayer walk. Since I sorely needed faith, I decided to try an experiment. I closed my eyes and attempted to continue walking at my normal pace.
What if I get off the sidewalk and into the road? I worried. One, two, three blind steps. I suddenly knew how Peter felt walking on water. You’re okay for exactly three steps, then you absolutely have to look!
I didn’t open my eyes all the way—just squinted for a second, taking a small peek to make sure I was still on the sidewalk. One, two, three more blind steps and then I had to peek. No matter how much I challenged myself, I couldn’t overcome the compulsion to take a small, reassuring peek after three steps.
The Bible says we should walk by faith, not by sight. Easier said than done! Fortunately, if you’re a little on the cautious side like me, God knows you’ll need to peek sometimes too.
