Walking By Faith


The Bible has lots to say about walking. We are advised to walk in God’s ways, to walk in the way of goodness, to walk in the Spirit, to walk properly, to walk in love, to walk in wisdom, to walk in truth, and to walk in a way that pleases God.

But what about those times when you don’t know which way to walk? Darkness has fallen on your way; a thick fog obscures the path ahead. Your footing is unsure, and you just don’t know which way to turn. It’s time for the walk of faith. We can walk by faith, without knowing exactly where we are going or what we are in for next, because we do not walk alone. When we call on the Lord, He walks with us and guides our way. Jesus promised, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

This exercise is a reminder of this important principle. Imagine you are walking through the streets of an unfamiliar city or down an unmarked country path. Dusk is falling as you arrive at a three-way fork in the road. Should you turn left, turn right, or continue straight ahead? Now picture Jesus arriving at your side. “Show me the way I should walk,” you plead. Jesus has a flashlight in His hand. He shines it down the road you should take and then starts to walk with you. His presence causes your apprehension to vanish. You know you are on the right path.

Now think about a decision or problem you are facing but don’t have the answer for. Follow the same process. Call on the Lord, asking Him to show you where to go or what to do next. Let Him shine His light on your path—perhaps through a verse of Scripture, or perhaps through words He speaks to your mind or an inner conviction He gives you. As you proceed in the direction He has shown you, trust that He has led you and is with you. There is nothing to fear.

Pray this Prayer with Faith:
Heavenly father, your words indeed guarantees my smooth relationship with you. Therefore, I demand your grace to enable me to live according to your word, not my will.

Let your spirit rekindle me and energize me to live willfully for you in Jesus name.

Isaiah 2:2-5.
Mark 11:12-24.
