For we walk by faith, not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7), since faith in God is faith in the unseen. Paul said that we need to walk or live by faith, not by sight. This admonition tells us not just to believe but to keep on believing in God’s Word and to make it a way of life. Daniel walked by faith in God. He worshiped Him daily against all odds until he was “cast into the lions’ den” because of his beliefs. True faith is just like the sun that shines continually beyond the dark, moonless night in some parts of the earth. The Apostles did not pray to revive their faith (as if it were dead!), but rather to increase it to maturity. Scriptures showed that the faith of Stephen in our Lord Jesus was strengthened by the rain of stones that killed him. To walk by faith thus is to live a life based on the “conviction of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1)—and the hope of eternal life in heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord. Faith in God is faith in the Unseen.
