Sometimes the way before us is filled with a mist. We are unable to see clearly and may find ourselves struggling to take the next step, not sure of what lies on the path ahead. We may become frightened and question what is waiting for us, and we may imagine that terrible things are ahead, so we refuse to move until the way is clear. We become bound by fear. And when fear moves in, it takes control and robs us of any lasting peace.
2 Timothy 1:7 tells us we do not need to have a spirit of fear! And throughout the Bible God tells us over and over again to "Fear not".
2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us we do not walk by sight. We walk by faith. We believe even though we do not see. We know that God has a plan for us...a plan for good and not for evil and with each step we take forward into the mist....into the unknown, our fears subside and our faith gives us the courage to keep moving forward on the journey God has laid out for us.
We walk by faith.
