“Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:6-7)
We physical beings cling to that which we know. Yet our spirit is alive, but dim in awareness. Leave behind you the merely physical, knowing it has good purpose, but pursue the awakening the Lord has made possible through grace. Yes, you need to do all you can, knowing the Lord is making it happen. It is a relationship with the Lord that is awakening in you that You may walk with Him forever.
Lord, in the mystery of this life, I cling to what I know. I am often afraid of those new places, most especially the ones You call for me to step out and trust You. Help me, Lord, to move beyond where I am that I may learn to walk by faith, growing and learning as You alone know I need. Guide me through this faith You have given me that I may grow to be like You.
Lord Jesus, You have come as the model of the godly life. We are to be conformed to Your image. That seems a daunting task, yet it is what we are called to do in faith. Lead me, O Lord, to see that only in following You am I able to become what You are creating. Guide me to learn how to trust and follow more and more that I would indeed become like You according to Your grace. Amen.
