I remember walking so far one time my feet were numb. At first, they had been hurting…then throbbing…then no feeling at all! But in order to get to my destination, I had to keep walking! I would look down and see my feet moving. Surreal experience!
That’s what faith is to me. Sometimes I cannot feel what’s happening in life or I cannot understand it. But I take a look and realize I am still moving…and I’m doing it only because of the Lord’s strength.
What happens when a muscle is not used? The medical term is atrophy. The muscle degenerates and no longer can move.
Putting it in spiritual terms, I walk by faith even when the path seems impossible. I have no desire to experience spiritual atrophy.
I cannot see The Lord…but I keep walking.
I cannot see the path…but His Word lights it up.
I cannot walk by myself. It is then I realize the Holy Spirit is walking beside me.
And I continue the journey…one step after another…
