Live by Faith: 2 Corinthians 5:7-9

Our life is lived by faith. We do not live by what we see in front of us. We are sure we will be glad to be free of these bodies. It will be good to be at home with the Lord. So if we stay here on earth or go home to Him, we always want to please Him.

2 Corinthians 5:7-9 (NLV)

When we live by faith, we trust and rely on God’s Word. We walk God’s path for us, listening to the Holy Spirit’s direction. Faith allows us to trust in the unseen, to rely upon with confidence, Jesus, and God’s Word. When we live by faith, we look forward with happiness to spending eternity at home with our Lord in Heaven. As children of God, living in faith, we want to please God by doing good works, with compassion and love.

When we live by faith, we trust in God. When you are uncertain, distracted, or confused, do you rely on Him?

Prayer: Our Heavenly Father, we thank you for your forgiveness, grace, and love. Help us to grow in faith and guide us along Your path. Let us trust with our hearts the unseen, and live by faith. Teach us to follow Your Word, to be good Christians, and to help others. Like the bright petals of the coneflower radiate from the center of the flower, let us shine bright in our faith, and radiate Your love. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen

I believe in the power of prayer. If you would like prayer, I would be glad to pray for you. Leave a comment or message me on the contact page. 🌺

  1. Amen 🙏🏽. A much needed reminder especially with all that is happening around us – it gives us a sense of assurance to remind ourselves that we are to live by faith and not by sight. He is in control of everything. May we turn to Him always.
    Blessings 💙

  2. Living by faith is how God has called us to live. It’s certainly not easy but it is required to please God. I’m thankful we’re all in this together as Christians and can encourage one another. Thank you Jeanne! ☀️🌼

  3. Walking by faith and not be sight is what gets me through these troubled times we are living in because I know God is on the throne and He is in control! Without Jesus we wouldn’t have a prayer!
