“The righteous will live by faith and if he withdraws My soul will have no pleasure in him,” that is what the Lord says because without faith it is impossible to please God. You can only WALK BY FATH if you have HEARD FROM GOD because faith comes from the hearing of the Word of God. If God has spoken to you and you have HEARD what He said, you BELIEVE IT and TAKE ACTION.
Many people WALK BY PRESUMPTION not by faith. They jump to conclusions or they claim to “step out in faith.” If you have not HEARD FROM GOD you have NO SUBSTANCE for your faith, then you are on your own, you are on your own initiative following your own mind and your own thoughts. You have to HEAR FROM GOD and then ACT on what YOU HAVE HEARD. Then you can be walking by faith.
Are you HEARING from the Lord? Are you WAITING on Him? Do you LISTEN when He speaks to you? Are you living by faith or by presumption? “Those who are led by the Spirit of God they are the sons of God.” You cannot follow Jesus by presuming things, by reading the Bible and then presuming certain things. You have to get CONFIRMATION from Him. If you are not sure, PRAY and ASK Him and He will speak to you. He CAN SPEAK, He is God. Wait on Him, LISTEN and OBEY, ACT on that which He TELLS you and then only can you walk by faith.
May Jesus bless you.
