Faith Walking

Today's reading: Acts 21:1-26

Paul was quite the traveler. Just reading about all the places he visited (without modern day travel modes or conveniences) makes me feel a bit tired. But as impressive as Paul's travels were, it's his unwavering faith that I find compelling. Throughout Acts, and here in chapter 21, Paul has surely modeled walking by faith rather than by sight (Paul writes about this in 2 Corinthians 5:6-7). Our human tendency, though, is just the opposite. We want to respond based on what we see, what's taking place in the world, what's happening personally to us, and we like and want the path of least resistance. So I was thankful for the example of Paul today. There was no doubt that hardship, including the possibility of being put to death, were going to be part of Paul's future. Yet, he willingly chose to press on, straight and steadily ahead, to complete the job God had for him.

How would you describe your present situation--are you faith walking or sight walking? What helps you choose to respond in faith when your circumstances are pressing in all around? How did Paul's example encourage you today? Tami

Irving Berlin, in his song, "There's No Business Like Show Business," wrote the phrase, "you're broken-hearted, but you go on." I'd say that describes the situation for many believers through the annals of time, including Paul here, and including myself. For one reason or another, we're heartbroken, but you just keep living life, broken heart and all, because you still have work to do for the Lord, and it can even be done with a heavy or broken heart, thanks to the Holy Spirit's help.
