Tuesday’s was ‘Walking With Jesus.’
Who is our guide?Our pastor’s wife gave the lesson and I liked the first verse she selected – not one I usually use:
Allow God to lead.
Learn from each step.
Know God’s way is best.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. (Psalms 16:11 KJV)
Yes, He is our guide, He is worthy to be followed, He will show us the right paths, where we will learn the most and His way provides us joy for evermore. Our walk with Him is filled with promises, and I trust His ability to fulfill them.
For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day. (2 Timothy 1:12 KJV)
No – that’s not one of the verses she gave us. That’s one of my own favorites from Paul because it stresses how I feel about God’s ability to keep His promises. I have returned the life He gave me into His care, though there is much I do not know:
Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:2-3 KJV)
Paul understood this:
But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. (1 Corinthians 2:9 KJV)
I have faith in God and His grace. Want some, too?
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (Romans 10:17 KJV)
Then continue your WALK by having your soul restored as He leads.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. (Psalms 23:3 KJV)
