Your Boots (Faith) Are Made For Walking

Day 11: January 16th, 2019


“For we walk by faith and not by sight…” 2nd Corinthians 5:7

Historical records are filled with the amazing (and often amusing) statements made by men whose vision was clouded with seemingly overwhelming facts on some important subjects. I read recently about this in an article posted in an online leadership site: Here are some very narrow minded yet spoken as factual statements that are simply very far from the truth...

On World Population… “The population of the earth decreases every day, and, if this continues, in another ten centuries the earth will be nothing but a desert.” Montesquieu, 1743

On Aviation… “The demonstration that no possible combination of known substances, known forms of machinery, and known forms of force can be united in a practical machine by which man shall fly long distances through the air...” Simon Newcomb, astronomer, 1903

On the Atomic Bomb… “That is the biggest foolish thing we have ever done. The bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives.” Admiral William Leahy to President Harry Truman, 1945

Though well meaning, these men just didn’t see things in the right way. They looked at the natural world and concluded that certain things simply were not possible. As we consider their words, let’s be admonished to not look at the circumstances and situations that make up our world personally, family, church etc… and conclude that certain things are not possible; for, with God, all things are possible.

Prayer Focus: Today, pray with your family or a friend about the need to have 20/20 spiritual vision. And pray that in season of praying and fasting the entire church family will experience the unifying power of seeing and believing God for something that is beyond what we could ask or think.
