II Corinthians 5:7
“For we walk by faith, not by sight.”

When you exercise, there is a process that we have to go through. You stretch the muscles and start slow and eventually build up a sweat. You work yourself up into a workout. Having faith, however, is the opposite. You don’t work yourself up into faith, because faith is a revelation and revelation comes from God. Trying to work up to faith is walking by the flesh, not walking in true faith.

When you believe with all your heart that God will do what He promised to do in His Word, then you are reaching out in true faith. Maybe you have a sickness, and you see that He has healed someone else from an illness; then, when you believe He will heal you too and reach out and grab the promise, you are acting on your faith. God will act on the basis of our faith. Walking in faith is walking in the revelation that God will do what He promises and that He never fails.

Believers walk by faith and not by sight. Although what we see will greatly influence us, it is only by the faith in Who Jesus Christ is that we are redeemed, made spotless and clean, and live freely in the grace and mercy of God. The whole Church of God is built upon revelation, and faith is a revelation. If you should pray and seek God for any one thing, it would be revelation - above all else.
Walk by faith, not by what you can see.

  
65-1126 - “Works Is Faith Expressed”
Now, faith is “a revelation from God.” Now, faith is a revelation. There’s where I want to stay, there, just a moment. It’s a revelation. He has revealed it to you by His grace. It’s nothing you did. You didn’t work yourself up into faith. You ever have faith, it’s give to you by the grace of God. And God reveals it to you, therefore faith is a revelation. And the whole Church of God is built upon the revelation.
