Where God guides, He provides

Where God guides, He provides

Read: John 16:1-16

2 Corinthians 5:7 “(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)”

Stephen Kuusisto grew up feeling a stigma about being legally blind. For him, sight consisted of a kaleidoscope or shapes, colors, and shadows. Privately he would press his face close to the page of a book and memorize street names in an exhausting attempt to appear more able to see than he really could.

When Stephen was 39, his life changed after he acquired an affectionate and carefully trained guide dog named Corky. In learning to use Corky to lead him, Stephen reflected on the growing trust in their relationship. He said, “Faith moves from belief into conviction, then to certainty. We are a … powerhouse!” When Stephen admitted that he needed the help of a sighted companion, a new world of freedom and mobility opened up to him.

Many believers blindly stumble their way through the Christian life in their own strength. Seemingly, they are unaware that God has provided a supernatural Guide to lead the way. Jesus said He would send us a Comforter who would guide us into all all truth (John 16:13). When we confess all known sin and then depend on the Holy Spirit to guide us (Galatians 5:16,18), we become a powerhouse for God! “for we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Corinthians 5:7) –Dennis Fisher

I’d rather walk in the dark with God
Than go alone in the light;
I’d rather walk by faith with Him
Than go alone by sight. — Anon
