Wesley's Notes for 2 Corinthians 5:7


5:7 For we cannot clearly see him in this life, wherein we walk by faith only: an evidence, indeed, that necessarily implies a kind of seeing him who is invisible; yet as far beneath what we shall have in eternity, as it is above that of bare, unassisted reason.

    When the St.James bible reads ; ask and you shall receive.Why do I not receive what I have asked for,for so many,many many years?

    I think you need to pray with 2 or more people. I recall a verse that says if 2 or more of you gather together in my name & agree as touching a thing.. I am in the midst of you. Type that in the search box at the top of this website; it'll go get the scripture.
  • MockingBird on 2 Corinthians 5:7
    When God hears Faith from one of His children : he hears and answers their call : God will move mountains when I walk by Faith : The word of God is faith : Get in His word and pray and watch the Lord work : he backs up with His word : God is Faithfull !!!
  • Yes! We experience God only by faith. This experience of God is our reward. If you could reason and think your way to God - we would have a world of happy philosophers and academics. Every time we cast down logic and reason in favour of faith - is a step walked in faith.....towards God.
  • We walk by the revealed Word of God. Not by what we 'feel ' is the right way. It 's a day to day, minute by minute walk.
  • Nkrumah j.k on 2 Corinthians 5:7
    If I look at constraints and challenges around me and feel unable and inadequate, I walk by sight and am carnally minded. But if I look unto Him God who is more than able to do exceedingly abundantly than I can ask or think of then I walk by faith.
  • MockingBird on 2 Corinthians 5:7
    If I would allow the word of God to motivate me then I would be living by faith. To let the word of God be my final answer. To shut my eyes feelings to the things around me. Very rewarding to walk by Faith. Faith pleases God and when I please God then no foe can successufully be against me. praise God !!!!
  • Dharam on 2 Corinthians 5:7
    even when it looks like everything will go against us, we can trust in God with the knowledge that he will come through for us. God never violates his word therefore it is our unbelief that causes us not to get what God has in store for us.
  • Faith is the key to Salvation. In order to please God, we must first believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11 6 Someone above asked the question "how do I build my faith? " It starts by falling down on our knees. Prayer is our connection to God through His dear Son Jesus. The more we bow down to Christ, the more He reveals Himself to us, and will baptize us with the Holy Ghost, which is the Spirit of Truth. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. Romans 10 17 Read the word of God and pray. Faith is saying Lord, I don 't see you, but I know you are real. I 'm going to pray and read your Word, until you make yourself known to me. We have to diligently seek God, and when we show God we are sincere, He will reveal Himself to us. This isn 't done with the natural mind nor can be. God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in truth. John 4 24 Not what the eyes see, but what the heart believes. This is a faith walk.
  • Olabode on 2 Corinthians 5:7
    without faith, it is impossible to please him. faith makes all thing possible in life.we can develop our faith in God by studying the bible regularly, spending quality time with him, listening to other 's testimonies etc.faith is the key that can open all doors.
