Walk by Faith

2 Corinthians 5:7, NIV: For we walk by faith, not by sight.
Being born again in the Spirit, we realize that we cannot make our spiritual selves
respond to our environment the way our physical selves do. If our spirits are to mature in
the Lord, then our spiritual selves must take the appropriate steps to learn how to live
in the spiritual realm. It is God's desire that we walk in the Spirit. "If we live in
the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit" (Galatians 5:25). God may accommodate us
with an occasional audible word, or some sort of sign. Yet that is not generally how He
works. After all, He is trying to help us to learn to walk in the Spirit. So why would He
guide us entirely in the flesh. He may use things around us to help us see His direction
for us. Yet we are not to become dependent on those things around us.
