Devo Will I find Faith Part 10
2 Corinthians 5:1-7 (KJV)
5 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven: 3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked. 4 For we that are in this tabernacle do groan, being burdened: not for that we would be unclothed, but clothed upon, that mortality might be swallowed up of life. 5 Now he that hath wrought us for the selfsame thing is God, who also hath given unto us the earnest of the Spirit. 6 Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: 7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)
This may be a little of a repeat of the last blog, but this is good stuff. Groaning does not imply an easy time. In this life we often go through hard places that we don’t enjoy. Our walk is not always a bed of roses. Jesus went to the cross, and yet says we will drink His cup. Not a sign me up moment and yet we do sign up knowing by His Spirit it will get better. Once again He gives us that earnest, deposit of His Spirit that by faith will carry us through any and all situations. We know by faith that this too shall pass, but He, His word shall never pass, because He gave us the Spirit of the word to walk by. We are confident knowing that as long we are in this body it is dying and shall pass away but we shall live on. We walk by faith through His spirit not by what seems to be reality itself.
