“For we walk by faith, not by sight:” (II Corinthians 5: 7)
As we love and adore God and recognize the Christ–the Truth come to earthly beliefs– we can no longer judge our lives or anyone else’s by appearances. We can’t take what the senses feed us as an indication of how well we are doing or what our potential is for life. We can’t take our steps merely according to what seems humanly right. Instead, we walk, live, give, express through our reliance on God’s own clear and flawless Truth.
Sense testimony is a blind guide, and we have a more confident one. Our faith, our reliance on and love of good, God, Mind, opens our spiritual eyes to limitless reality. As we give up the limits that personal sense erects for the broad horizons of Soul’s viewpoint, we are able to experience the Life God has designed for us, one that is abundant in good, suitable to us, and pleasing.
We are followers of our Guide, our Shepherd. We walk with Him, trusting not what human opinions or material testimony would attempt to project for our acceptance. Instead, we walk in the sweet simplicity of a child, reliant on his own Father and Mother to take us where we need to go, to show us what we need to know, and to love us forward with a gentle insistence that is just right.
