Raw Faith

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

What does that verse really mean? What should we take from it? Do we really believe what it says?

In today’s wayward church, we may think this means to ‘name and claim’ your blessing. A new car, more money, or some other self-centered thing. As if God is the bellboy and we are the patron staying at the hotel. Throw God a dollar bill, get what we want, and have a good day

However, walking by faith is not trusting to get what you want from God. It’s depending on Him even when you do not understand. It’s walking in a dark tunnel where you can’t see a pinprick of light. It’s taking one agonizing foot forward inch by inch.

For one woman, walking by faith and not by sight is more than just a nice Bible verse, it’s the thread of her being. Like Job, she has been bombarded with calamity after calamity from the time she was in her mother’s womb. Financial ruin, loss of relationships, and the loss of physical health, she is truly Job for us…but unlike Job we don’t know if it’s going to end well at all. So she is walking by faith, not by sight.

This episode is more than just about showcasing a book; it’s about experiencing the words of someone who is hanging on by the scratch marks her nails left behind.
