When we are living by faith, we are trusting the Lord to take care of whatever comes our way. That is sometimes good things but many times, it is trials. Trials are promised to come our way if we are living as God wants us to. But this hymn is one that reminds me that Living By Faith is the only way to live. God is the ruler of it all. God is in control. God is there by our side, leading the way.
So, today, are you Living By Faith?
Living By Faith
words: James Wells (1918)
music: J. L. Hearth
1 I care not today what the morrow may bring,
If shadow or sunshine or rain,
The Lord I know ruleth o’er everything,
And all of my worries are vain.
Living by faith in Jesus above,
Trusting, confiding in His great love;
From all harm safe in His sheltering arm,
I’m living by faith and feel no alarm.
2 Though tempests may blow and the storm clouds arise,
Obscuring the brightness of life,
I’m never alarmed at the overcast skies—
The Master looks on at the strife. [Refrain]
3 I know that He safely will carry me through,
No matter what evils betide;
Why should I then care though the tempest may blow,
If Jesus walks close to my side. [Refrain]
4 Our Lord will return for His loved ones some day,
Our troubles will then all be o’er;
The Master so gently will lead us away,
Beyond that blest heavenly shore. [Refrain]
