Walking by faith and not by sight is difficult at times. But that does not excuse us from obeying that call, especially when the Lord has recently shown Himself faithful to His Word. Johanan and other Judahites did not believe God’s Word through Jeremiah even though they had seen the Lord’s promise to devastate Jerusalem come true (Jer. 43:1–7). How much more, then, are we to be held culpable if we fail to believe God now that we have seen His promises come true in Christ Jesus?
