by faith

2 Corinthians 5:7 - "for we walk by faith..."
Hebrews 11 - "by faith" is used over ten times
Romans 3:28 - "Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith..." 
Romans 5:2 - "through whom also we have access by faith..."
Galatians 3:11 - "But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”
Galatians 5:5 - "For we through the Spirit eagerly wait for the hope of righteousness by faith."

I found this sign at Walmart and have it hanging in my room. Last week I started thinking about two of those three words, "by faith." "By faith" is a phrase that appears in the Bible quite a few times. To me, "by faith" means walking down a path that may not make sense to the world. It means making decisions that - from the natural - are bigger than yourself. It's saying yes to God. It's thinking from a spiritual perspective instead of an earthly one. And there's a surreal confidence that comes when you walk "by faith." You can know - despite circumstances - that God's working things out. You don't have to worry. You don't have to doubt. You have a peace that's unshakable. By faith."
