They say that living by faith is like driving with your eyes closed, only opening them periodically in your moments of doubt. They say you miss a lot — it’s dangerous to you and those around you.
Such a living would indeed be dangerous. But that’s not living by faith at all.
Living by faith is more like driving blind. Insisting that you can see only makes things even more dangerous. Living by faith is first knowing that you cannot see — knowing that you have absolutely no idea what’s ahead. But living by faith is also living a trust — the trust that God can see and that You can depend on Him for being your eyes. Living by faith is driving blind but driving sure because even if you don’t know what turns and bumps are up ahead, God does. To trust and to make Him your eyes can only but guarantee you the only ride to life.
“For we walk by faith, not by sight”
—2 Corinthians 5:7—
