Faith: it’s either you have it, or you don’t; there is no in-between.
Moreover, if you have ever wondered what the bible says about walking by faith: you’ve landed on the right page.
Faith is essential for victorious living, powerful, and an effective weapon of engagement that anyone can use to make demands on God: anytime, anywhere, and with full assurance that God sees, hear, and answers.
However, without faith, it is impossible to find, approach, and please God.
You will not get to enjoy God’s best if you don’t walk in faith.
Anyone who refuses to walk with faith but lives by sight has aborted God’s promises of victory, peace, miracles, breakthroughs, power, deliverance, wealth, healing, and all the other blessings God has promised.
Faith is the only way up, and especially for the child of God; it’s faith street or no street.
Walking by faith is vital and those who refused to do so will only attract sorrows, setbacks, frustrations, pain, defeats, brokenness, calamity, and poverty.
However, those that walk by faith and not by sight are at peace and can stand in blessed assurance.
It does not matter how difficult or uncertain things may look right now, those who walk in faith and not by sight can stand their ground and watch God come through for them.
It was David who said: ” I have been young and now I am old and have never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed the begging bread.”
God is faithful; those who trust in him will enjoy his faithfulness, but everything is predicated on faith; walking in faith; not sight or what you feel or imagine based on carnal realities.
For this reason, I have prayerfully, carefully, and in love selected 10 powerful Bible verses about walking by faith and not by sight to bless, encourage, and boost your confidence in God.
Bible Verses About Walking in Faith and Not by Sight
1. Hebrews 11:1
The first verse about walking in faith, Hebrews 11:1, tells us what faith is; not necessarily what faith isn’t. But let’s look at what faith is, and then later we’ll look at what faith isn’t.
As Hebrews 11:1 puts it, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. This means
that you have complete confidence in God’s word and His character.
You aren’t going by what you see, but you’re going approach him based on faith, …. the substance of things you hope for.
Secondly, faith is incomplete without works; you need to act on your conviction else it isn’t faith, but a wishful mumble-jumble.
When you add obedience to do what you believe as highlighted by scriptures, you will get those things that you hoped for.
To walk by faith means you’re walking even when you cannot see where you’re going. It means you’ve made up your mind to obey God at any cost, to take him at his word, and you harbor no intention to look back.
Abraham is a good example of how to walk by faith and what faith walking is. Here’s what the scriptures say about him:
, “And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead when he was about a hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sarah’s womb.
He staggered not at the promises of God; through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God.”
2. 2 Corinthians 5:7
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”
Hebrews 11:1 tells us what faith is, but 2 Corinthians 5:7 tells us what faith isn’t. Faith isn’t sight, it isn’t walking by sight, or by any other human senses.
Furthermore, faith isn’t self-reliance or reliance on any other being, it’s reliance on God.
That being the case, trusting in the flesh isn’t faith, and nor is trusting in other forms of spiritual help, it’s God or nothing.
Simply put, walking by faith is trusting in God and doing what He says of you to do.
The danger of being guided by our carnal senses or trusting in other forms of spiritual help other than God can be costly and even deadly.
At all cost, avoid this, otherwise, you’ll find yourself in big trouble, even bigger trouble than you’re in now.
The righteous or just shall live by faith and not by sight, as such, you must never allow your flesh to get in the way of what God is doing in your life.
Be encouraged, patient, and just wait on God while you weather the storms. If there’s one thing that I’ve discovered and re-discover in life is this: God always comes through for his people.
3. Psalm 20:7
“Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.”
Again, walking by faith means to trust in God, not in men, horses, or chariots, but in God alone. Sure, it’s tempting at times to trust and seek men’s help when there’s an urgent need.
And don’t get me wrong, God does use men to bless men.
But your first stop station must be to seek God and hear what He says. From experience, as you seek Him, He will instruct you where to go, who to go to, or if He just wants you to wait a bit longer.
For this reason, I encourage you to trust God, walk by faith, and even when you cannot see; keep walking.
4. Psalm 46:1-5
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth gives way, and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. God is within her; she will not fall; God will help her at break of day.”
A refuge is a condition of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or trouble.
God is a refuge, you are His child and are protected from the snare of the fowler, noisome pestilence, arrow that flies by day, terror by night, pestilence that walketh in darkness, and the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
God shall cover you with his feathers and under His wings shall you trust. He will not suffer your foot to be moved nor your life to be snuffed out, He that keepeth Israel will not slumber nor sleep.
Only with your eyes will you see the reward of the wicked. A thousand shall fall at your hand, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not fall nigh you.
Because you’ve made the Almighty, even the Most-High your refuge, strength, and fortress. You shall rest peaceably and enjoy the protection of your heavenly father.
What more can I say other than what God says? As you can see; it’s good to walk by faith. When you do: you will make Psalm 91 a reality in your life.
5. Proverbs 3:5-6
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
Walking by faith, as Proverbs 3:6-5 puts it is when self is out of the equation. The only thing you need to do here is to read the word of God, believe the word of God, receive what it says, and have what it says.
That’s all: don’t lean on your understanding, simply acknowledge God, believe His words, set your heart on His words, receive His words, act on His words, and watch God make it happen.
So far, we have only spoken about what faith is and what it isn’t, but we haven’t yet spoken about how to get faith.
As Romans 10:17 puts it, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. This implies that unless you read or hear the word preached you will not have faith.
For this reason, I recommend that you set time to read the scriptures, meditate on them, and believe every word.
I would further say that your faith cannot surpass your knowledge; what you know about God is vital to having faith.
That being so, I guess explains the reason why God said my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: what you don’t know can and will destroy you if you don’t read the scriptures to know the God of the scriptures so that you can have faith in Him.
7. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
“For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perishes, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.”
Again, the Bible keeps repeating itself about walking by faith and not by sight. Here we see Paul telling the believers not to be preoccupied with what is going on around them but instead to set their focus and attention on God and His promises.
Sure, I won’t pretend as if I don’t know what’s going on in the world right now.
People are losing their jobs, people are being strongly encouraged to take vaccines, people are protesting everywhere, and sadly, people are dying as you read this article.
However, though, Paul says to take heart. Because within you, though you may not see it: your strength is being renewed daily.
I will say as David said: you will not die but live to declare the works and the word of the Lord. As long as you don’t set your eyes on things seen but on things unseen; you’ll receive the promises of God.
8. Hebrews 11:6
“And without faith, it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
Faith is the only way to come to God, to please him, and see his promises becoming reality in your life. It is simple as that: no faith, no God, and no manifestations of his promises in your life.
Well, should you ask me why I chose to walk by faith, I will tell you that this right here is more than enough of an incentive to walk with faith and to keep my eyes on the Lord.
9. Mark 11:22-24
“And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him.
Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
Have faith in… who? God. What a fitting way to end this article. Have faith in God, not man, not chariots, not horses, not the devil, or any other form of spiritual being.
Faith in God and God alone is enough and all you need to live a purposeful, victorious, joyful, and blessed life here on earth.
Faith makes everything possible, anything possible, and nothing impossible for those who walk by faith: they will run and not get weary, they will walk and not faint, they will move through troops, scale high walls, slay lions, bears, goliath, subdue kingdoms, quench the edge of swords, and live to witness the move of God, and this is all possible because of faith. You can do the same; only believe, don’t doubt, just believe.
Walking with faith is taking God at his word, it is to trust the character, nature, and integrity of the Almighty within the perimeter of scriptures.
Thank you for reading through to the end. If these scriptures have been a blessing to you, I would encourage you to share them with your families, friends, and even those in your close circle. And as always, feel free to reach out to me if you need prayer. I bless you.
