2 Corinthians 5:7 (AMP) for we walk by faith, not by sight [living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises]—

When a loved one doesn’t feel well, don’t keep staring at them, especially if they have a look of pain or sorrow. Continuing to look at them, feeling sorry for them, is counterproductive to our faith. If both of you believe God’s word, both of you should know we’re healed (1 Pet. 2:24). If you’re going to look, look at them as if they are their healthy selves.

The same goes with our finances. If we have more bills than money, it does us no good to stare at our checking account. That’s walking by sight. Look to God’s word where it says all our needs are met (Phil. 4:19).

This also applies to our children’s behavior or grades, marriage issues, or other desires. If we focus on what’s wrong, we’ll never have the faith to obtain God’s best.

Let’s not be moved by what we see in the natural. Be moved by the word of God.
