You can't always believe what you see. This is especially true when we talk about walking as Christians in an ungodly world. Every day we are tempted by what we see. If you don't believe me, simply take a look at the world around us and compare it with God's word. There is a world of difference, isn't there?
It is difficult to walk in this world as children of God, since God's kingdom stands in sharp contrast to this world. Those who do not know Christ do not know what it means to walk by faith, because they can walk by sight if they desire to stand for worldly things. We, as children of God, cannot walk by sight. We walk by faith.
Without faith, it is impossible for us, as children of God, to navigate life. We rely on God to guide us, because we realize that what we see in the world is deceitful. Without God, there is no telling where we would end up on the road of life. When it becomes difficult for us to trust God, we need to remember that what we see in the world is deceitful. We can only navigate life when we are guided by God.
