Why walk by sight?

  All walking by sight accomplishes is to show you limitations.  Faith shows you what is possible.  God is waiting, listening for you to ask in faith.  He is eager to say “Yes”.

The word “walk” speaks to me of how we regularly do business; how we think.  The natural soulish man walks by sight; he thinks by sight.  He knows only what he can see and comprehend.  God is able to do much more than we can ask or imagine and our faith can take us there.

If we walk by sight we are doomed to walk in the soulish realm.  Our sight and imagination is limited only to what we can conceive, what we can see and understand.  Our sight is focused upon ourselves and upon this world.  When we focus on ourselves we focus upon our strengths.  Since our best strength is really weakness we end up dwelling on our sin and failure.  We are unable to see past it.  Those times we do hear God calling, our first response is to run and hide.

Sight says “My life is a train wreck.”  Faith says “The blood of Jesus cleanses me from all sin.”  Sight says “run away.”  Faith says “draw near.”  Sight sees an angry God holding a list of our sins.  Faith sees our Father smiling at us with open arms.  Sight causes endless striving to become worthy of our calling in Christ.  Faith sees Christ at the cross inviting us to bring our sins, failures, and rebellion to be left there to be forgiven and to done away with by God’s power.

When we choose to walk by faith, we open the door to what is possible because we become focused on God.  We see His power.  We see that His work of redemption for us is finished.  We see our own weakness as strength and quit trying to live the Christian life as if we possibly could by our own power and goodness.

Our faith lets us see that God doesn’t move because somehow we have been transformed into wonderful spiritual people.  Faith allows us to see that God uses weak, flawed, and broken people because these are the ones who know that they are without resources apart from Christ.  Our authority is Christ’s and our power is God’s.  God doesn’t need our help; he just wants our trust and obedience.

God picked us all out of the garbage dump.  He sees treasure where we see trash.  He cleans and restores and we think humility is to return ourselves to the dump.  God is calling us to come up where HE is.  Jesus accomplished what he set out to do.  JESUS IS ENOUGH.  His work is finished and there is nothing we can, or need, to add to it.

If you sin, take it to the cross and leave it there.  Ask God to kill it and Christ to forgive and to cleanse it from your conscience.  Make the decision to stop looking at life through the filter of your own ability but rather exercise your faith and let God show you what is possible.
