Wil you walk with Jesus today? Will you allow Him to guide your steps? These two questions should be in our minds all the time. I have a tendancy to put me first and do the things I want to do. It is built into my human nature. As each day begins I have choices to make. They are the same everyday. What will I wear? Does my face look presentable? What will I have for breakfast? What will my atittude be? Hundreds of choices to make, and I make them rapidly and often with barely a thought. Then I am on my way in our pursuit of a good day. I hope for the best results from decisions I have made and will make. These days, I am working from home. I must allow time for every task that I have to do. There is breakfastm exercise, blogs, map work, housework, reading, correspondence, groceries…the list goes on and on. All decisions I must make.
In the middle of all these decisions, I need to oout God! Yes, even the groceries. I wan to buy healthyy things so I need His guidance. I want to be frugal, so I need His guidance. I want an opportuity to witness in the store, so I need His Holy Spirit and His wisdom. I want to help someone, so I need His discernment. I want to walk worthy, so I need His guidance. There is nothing I do that does not need Him there, walking alongside, helping me.
In order to have His presence with me all the time, I must keep my mind on Him. Prayer and praise are key to my existence and fellowship withe Jesus. Meditating on His word is my inspiration. I can allways know He is there. because His word tells me He is (Deut 31:6). I can aways know He willl guide my path, because His word tells me so (Prov 3:6). I can always know hHe will light the way, because His word is a lamp (Psalm 119:105). Wherever I go, He is there (Psalm 139:7-12).
So I will determine each day to walk with Him. To talk with Him. To tell Him I am His own. I know He will be there for me. And when I do this I can walk in victory no matter what storm may come or what obstacle comes before me.
How about you?
