How to LIVE by FAITH

Apr 02, 2021

If you want to walk by faith, first, you need to give Jesus your life and release your fears to God and accept the path He leads you down. I know, this is easier said than done, of course. You may not become completely fearless, but you can be courageous and learn to act according to God's will even when you are afraid of what lies ahead. Below are steps to moving toward walking by faith.

  • Pray through all stages of life. Prayer offers you a direct channel of communication to God. To stay committed to a walk of faith, you need to keep talking to God through both good and bad times.
  • Listen for direction. For the most part, you'll need to walk through life and make decisions based on what you already understand who God is and what God wants for you. However, keep your mind open so that you will be able to interpret messages and signs from God when they do come along.
  • Prepare to look foolish. For those who walk by sight, the actions and beliefs of a person who walks by faith can seem foolish. You'll need to learn to walk on despite any criticism you receive from those around you.
  • Expect to face trials along the way. Every road has rough patches, and the one you're setting out on now is no exception. The trials you'll face are there to give your journey strength and meaning, though
  • Stop waiting for an epiphany. There might be times when you feel the presence of God very vividly, but there will also be times when you feel a sense of distance between you and God. It would be best if you kept walking by faith through these dark times without waiting for some epiphany or miracle to illuminate your path.
  • Glorify God in all that you do. You do not need to be a famous evangelist to walk by faith and give glory to God. Do the best you can with the tasks and circumstances God has given you.
  • Give thanks. Be thankful for the blessings God has given you. Taking time to notice all the good things in your past and present can strengthen your faith and make it easier to keep walking when the path seems dim.
