What does it mean to walk by faith? Discover how it can change your life.

What people mean ‘walking by faith’ means that you cling to the dreams God has planted in your heart, even when you’re been thrown away, taken to prison for crimes you didn’t commit. Walking by faith requires a strong determination to follow God’s plan regardless what life throws your way. Here are few more things for you to know:-

FAITH MEANS TRUSTING GOD:-   Have you ever played that trust game where you close your eyes and fall backwards into the arms of someone waiting to catch you? It’s scary to not  be able to see where you’re going to land and  let yourself just…. fall, trusting someone will catch you. Faith is kind of like that, except God is the one we’re trusting . When we feel prompted to do something that takes us outside in our comfort zone, faith means trusting God will be there to catch us and turn it into something wonderful.

FAITH MEANS BELIEVING GOD IS TAKING CARE OF US:-  When those promptings come and we follow them, it can be really scary! What if He prompts us to talk to that person we’ve been avoiding? Or to randomly take cookies to someone we barely know? What will we say? What will they think? The answer is if we trust Him, He will make it beautiful. He’s taking care of us. If it wasn’t Him sending the prompting but was our best to follow Him and will bless us anyway.

IT MEANS TRUSTING HIS JUSTICE:-   We all get hurt, sometimes badly. Abuse and bullying happen in this life. It can be really hard to walk by faith when people are mean. Part of walking by faith is taking time out from the hard things to talk to God, to cry out our tears of frustration, fear and confusion and to let Him take our sorrow. Faith means believing He will take care of justice. We can trust Him to do that while we get back to the joyful parts of life.

FAITH MEANS EXPRESSING GRATITUDE:-   Faith includes seeing the blessings we have in life, and expressing gratitude for them. From sunsets to kind words to someone, holding the door open for us, blessings are everywhere. We walk by faith when we express gratitude  not only to God but also to the people He puts in our lives to bless us. Acknowledging Him in our blessings strengthens our faith as we notice He loves us and is pouring our blessings all around us.

IT MEANS EXERCISING BELIEF FOR GOD:-   Trusting God, listening to and acting on promptings, letting go of anger and expressing gratitude are all pieces of what it means to walk by faith. Just like a toddler learning to walk, we don’t go from zero to  cruising on the faith racetrack in one afternoon. The more we exercise our faith muscles, the stronger we get and easier it is for us to feel peace.

FAITH MEANS FEELING OF INNER PEACE:-   While faith is much more than a feeling — it’s a willingness to trust God and to act as He ask us to — it does bring some recognizable feelings.  The greatest of these is peace. As our faith muscles get stronger, we feel peace in more and more situations. And pretty soon, we’ll be sharing that peace with people around us, helping them to walk by faith as well.
