When we walk with Jesus, we will see things as never before. The truth of God’s word becomes our reality, as we meditate on it day and night. Psalm 1:1-3 NKJV “BLESSED is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season. Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.”
When we commit to this path, and serve Him fully, without letting our desires of our own fulfilment get in the way, much will be revealed to us about how we can better face each part of the journey. Things are revealed to us as we walk. When we commence a particular part of our journey, we are given all we need in order to move in the direction of God’s will.
We are prepared in advance for this walk. Much of what we are given today will lay the foundation for some future point in time. Ephesians 2:10 NKJV “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
He has literally prepared the way for us to walk. It’s only when we take a few detours that we begin to get off track. It’s important that we follow God’s guidance so that we may be able to take the shortest route possible to where we are going. It’s when we get impatient and take shortcuts, trying to do things our way, that we take longer to get to each destination. Proverbs 19:20-21 NKJV “Listen to counsel and receive instruction, That you may be wise in your latter days. There are many plans in a man’s heart, Nevertheless the LORD’S counsel – that will stand.”
The more we trust in the Lord to guide us and give us a helping hand, the more we will come to experience this in our lives. We will begin to notice things flowing smoothly and effortlessly, more and more as time goes by. This is one of the many benefits of our walk with the Lord. The Lord is our light, guiding us through the shadows of fear and worry. If we will let Him, He will guide us through all the darkness until we reach the light of day. Proverbs 4:18 NKJV “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.”
PS John 8:12 NKJV “I am the light of the world, He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Amen.
All glory for these words as always goes to the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
