Walk By Faith

A short time ago I started going for early morning walks along the runway when I arrived at work. It was autumn and the sunrises were spectacular. Slowly as my fitness level increased, I started running part of the way.

It is now winter and I am too early to see the sunrises. It is almost completely dark when I run, with only the lights around the runway to light up sections of the path I run. I no longer walk but am able to run the whole way.

Yesterday as I ran there was a low mist that seemed to cover the whole airfield. By the time I was at the end of my route, I was unable to see more than three meters ahead of me, and the following verse was going round and round in my head:

2 Corinthians 5 vs 7

“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

If it had been the first time that I was running the same route, I would have had to slow down and walk carefully, unsure of where I was going. But since I had been running the same route daily for several weeks, I was confident that the paved pathway was flat and free from obstacles. Even though I could not see, I could maintain my same speed and direction.

As I walk this journey hand in hand with God I do not need to be able to see what lies in front of me either. Though what lies ahead of me may be misty, I can be confident that He is with me.

Psalm 139 vs 9-10

“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”
