Assurance about what we do not see

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.  Hebrews 11:1

As followers of Jesus Christ we walk by faith and not by sight.  We walk according to the leading of the Holy Spirit and God’s word is the standard of our lives.  This is why with the Lord nothing is impossible.  No matter what we see with our eyes and no matter what doubts or fears may fill our hearts, we know that God’s grace and His power is greater than anything we will face in our lives.  This is why the Lord tells us to fix our eyes upon Him.  When our eyes are fixed upon Jesus we will walk without fear.  We will understand that any fear or doubt we face are simply lies and deceptions of the enemy.  Walking in victory is simply a result from abiding in the Lord and fixing our eyes and hearts upon Him.  We live in a world that is broken and filled with broken people.  The sad truth is that many in the world follow after the lies of the enemy.  But we who are in Christ are called to be a light in a very dark place.  Let us simply focus our hearts upon Jesus and draw near to Him with our whole heart.
