“Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.” (2 Corinthians 5:6-8). Paul was heavenly minded, however, he still realized he had a race to finish, a battle to be won. In our hearts, we may desire to go home to heaven, but we are still bound to this earth. So every morning that we arise, we must begin our day by walking by faith in Christ. There will come a day either by death or the Lord’s return when we will go home. But until then, we must put on the armor of God that we may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. One day, we will be in His presence and see Him face to face and what a glorious day that will be.
Have Blessed Day!
