Light in the Darkness

For we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7

Navigating unfamiliar surroundings in the dark is difficult. That’s why I always keep a light on in the room I’m sleeping in or make sure I have easy access to a light when I’m in an unfamiliar room. In contrast, I can navigate my bedroom in the dark as long as I don’t leave an obstacle in my normal path. I’ve walked the short distance from my bed to the living room enough to feel confident in the dark.

Faith gives us the confidence to walk toward the promised destination without fear. Even when we cannot see how we’ll arrive safely, faith keeps us going.

Our relationship with the Lord is an essential part of our navigating obstacles that seem to block our path. Faith grows in proportion to the strength of our connection with Him. We trust Him because we know Him and recognize His voice even in the darkest night. Such a connection comes when we abide with Him daily.
