1 Timothy 3:13
Those who have served well gain an excellent standing and great assurance in their faith in Christ Jesus.
Although faith is not a matter of sight as we established at the beginning of this series, faith is not blind either. We have faith in what we do not see but there is a reason for having such faith.
Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” God gives us assurances along the way that we are on the right path and that our faith is properly placed. God guides our steps while we place our faith in Him.
What we don’t know is where the path leads. We can only see directly in front of us so that we do not stumble.
The greatest assurance of our faith that we receive is the answer to our prayers. Many times we don’t even know that they have been answered but sometimes we see things happen when we know that God’s hand was definitely involved.
We are also reassured in our faith whenever we see someone else place their trust in Jesus. Watching a life change from sinful to Christ-like is an amazing transformation and shows us the power of God.
While we do walk by faith and not by sight, God still provides us guides along the way. We don’t know where life’s journey may take us but God keeps us from stumbling in our faith by assuring us that He is with us.
