What does it mean to live and walk by faith? Does it mean that we should walk in front of traffic and expect not to get hurt? Or, live our life in such a way that we except the Lord to get us out of every mess that we get ourselves into?
No, I don’t think that’s what it means. I believe it means, at least for me, is that we pray about all things, come to a conclusion and live by that. When we pray about something we’ll get one of three responses from the Spirit (if we are living righteously):
- Yes, it’s the right thing to do
- No, it’s not the right thing to do
- It’s up to you to choose – either way, it’s OK
The Lord wants us to use our agency. We should act for ourselves relying on the Spirit.
Keeping ourselves in tune with the Lord each day and really thinking about what we are doing and know that we are doing the will of the Lord – and id we live this way – then we are living and walking by Faith.
Have a blessed day !!!
