Faith pt.3

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

Do you live by faith? What were your thoughts this morning? What was your hearts nourishment? Were entertainment and food of greater joy than your heavenly meditations? Have you spent half an hour, or 15 minutes in exercising your faith? Have you allowed this needful task to be forgotten? Have you wasted a day, a week, or month, and starved your soul of its refreshments? Recover yourself before you go to your heavenly home. Will you die before you have lived?

Moses focused his eye upon him that was invisible. A believer should go through this world as a man deep in thought, or with an errand of great importance. He travels down a street looking at nothing, hearing nothing, and considering nothing along the way. His focus is taken up with his treasures in heaven. O that no earthly object might detain or distract us! O that the main intent within us is the strengthening of our faith! Resolve in your heart not to omit one day, with the help of the Holy Spirit, to redeem at least a quarter of an hour once or twice a day. Withdraw yourself apart from all company to seek the Lord and the strengthening of your faith. That is, by prayer, reading, and meditation you might put strength and life into your faith.
