Kingdom citizens walk by faith, not by sight,
“Kingdom citizens walk by faith, not by sight, but this does not mean our faith is blind. On the contrary. Kingdom faith is not a leap in the dark, but a walk illuminated by the bright light of Heaven. Kingdom faith is a confident leap in the bright light of God’s faithfulness to His Word. Kingdom faith is not a vacillating belief in chance but a bold conviction in the credibility of the King and “government of Heaven. Kingdom faith is faith in His faithfulness.
When we walk by faith, we see from a heavenly perspective that is far more vast and all-encompassing than any view from the physical plane. Circumstances and realities that are invisible from the purely human standpoint are opened to our view because Kingdom faith, while not based on sight, is based on vision.
Through the eyes of faith we understand that everyone was created to fulfill a purpose. God has a reason for everything He does or allows, so the fact that you and I are here on this earth is no accident. If you are alive and breathing, God has a plan and a purpose for your life: “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future!” (Jer. 29:11). The word hope here does not refer to wishful thinking, but to a certainty based on the unshakeable integrity of God’s promise, even if it is not yet visible. We can entrust our future to “God because His Word is true, and because, as we walk by faith, He gives us vision related to His purpose for each of us.
Your purpose is your vision assignment for your life. And this vision is revealed through faith. Many people live their entire lives and never discover who they are or what they were meant to do. Kingdom life means being brought out of the darkness of unknowing into the light of purpose and relationship: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy” (1 Pet. 2:9-10).
As Kingdom citizens and God’s “chosen people,” we are the royal children of the King. Children of earthly royalty are groomed from birth to know who they are, what they are to do, and how they are to behave as princes and princesses. God’s “Kingdom operates the same way. He gives you a vision of who you are and what He wants you to do, and that vision is your life assignment from your King and Father. Fulfilling that vision makes up your purpose in life. Kingdom faith helps you see and understand the vision from your Father. What vision has He given you?”
