By faith, not by sight

As believers, we no longer live under the law, looking to it to tell us what to do and not do, then trying our best to do it. Instead, we live on the faith principle, the inner life principle, of who really is our life—Christ. We trust that He directs us, opens or closes doors for us, and speaks directly to us, giving us a message or whatever is needed for the occasion. We trust that He is living through us. We may not feel it at any given moment, but we live by faith that He is our life.— The Rest of the Gospel: When the partial Gospel has worn you out, page 145

By faith, not by sight; that is the secret. Believe what God says, not what you feel.
