For we walk by faith, not by sight.(2 Cor. 5:7)
Sight is one of the five physical senses. We could say, "We walk by faith, not by our physical senses."
I'm not preaching something to you that I don't do myself. I mean, I've been in some alarming situations. I had a severe heart condition and an incurable blood disease as a boy. The doctor told me that I was going to die.
He said, "Your white corpuscles eat up the red corpuscles faster than you can build them up or medically do anything about them. If you didn't have the heart condition, if you didn't have the paralysis, this incurable blood disease would prove to be fatal to you."
Doctors said that to me when I was a teenager. Well, I learned a lesson as I lay on that bed. And years later after I was healed, when death came and fastened itself upon my body again, I started laughing.
Why? I had learned to listen to my spirit. I had learned to let my inward man dominate me. I just started laughing out loud. Right in the face of death, I laughed. I knew death was upon me, but I started laughing in the face of death.
And the Holy Spirit, who is in my spirit, rose up in me.
I could feel Him rise up in me. He just drove death out of me. And my body began to respond.
Confession: I walk by faith and not by sight. I listen to my spirit. In the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, I laugh. I know that my God is greater than any circumstance!
