Daily Verse
September 6 – Living by Our Faith

"Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith. – Habakkuk 2:4

The New Testament makes it clear that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Being humble is not just a practice in religious zeal or looking pious and downcast. Being humble is living in the knowledge that Jesus Christ is the only way to the Father and by His death on the cross our sins have been fully paid. We live by faith in the living God because Jesus is who we have placed our faith in and in who we trust. The proud man is not upright because he lives by his faith in himself and his ability. Jeremiah recorded God’s words to a faithless generation whose hearts were hardened:

“But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight," says the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:24)”

Christians, those who are born again, live by faith and not by sight.
