The brethren of the early church were full of faith, and they walked by faith and not by what their natural views contemplated. The Word says:
“(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)” (2 Corinthians 5: 7)
So, why are there brothers today who have faith and are not victorious in the direction they take?
The answer is that it is not enough to have faith and go in any direction. God's Word shows us that for a believer to go in some direction, he must first have the vision.
"And after he had seen the vision, immediately we endeavoured to go into Macedonia, assuredly gathering that the Lord had called us for to preach the gospel unto them. ". (Acts 16:10)
The heroes of the faith of Hebrews 11 also did so and won. Abram, the first to be announced the Gospel, headed in the vision that God gave him. He had faith and did not walk by sight, but according to the vision. God's Word shows us:
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” (Genesis 12: 1-3)
The LORD had given Abram the vision and he walked according to this revelation. Later, God still reaffirmed the vision:
“And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. And he believed in the Lord; and he counted it to him for righteousness.” (Genesis 15:5-6)
Therefore, let us walk in the direction of God, that is, according to the revelation that He gives us.
Glory to The LORD GOD! Amen.
In the love of the Lord Jesus,
