Living On The Edge

Something to think about

Living On the Edge

For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NKJV)

 The next apropos question is what is faith?

11 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)

This is the most challenging verse in the Bible.  It is asking us to put life into our faith. It is asking us to actually go out on a limb and live what we believe.  To actually, walk around day by day being the miracle we so dutifully proclaim. Living life expecting the word of God to be alive in us. It is commanding us to live our lives to the fullest potential of what God has gifted us with. It is living in expectation of victory which only God can perform, not just occasionally but every day of our lives.  “To live by faith and not by sight” is to live life on the edge of existence. Whatever that may be for you. Knowing that God will provide the next step in your journey. A walk of faith is total dependence on God. It is that place where the carnal and spiritual meet and we become subordinate to the spirit of God.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
