Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
Isaiah 30:19 -26
Picture a parent protectively walking behind their one year old, as he/she takes their first steps. This is God’s stance as I learn over and again how to walk in his ways. When I turn to the right or to the left , or stumble because I am not yet strong enough, Father God says, “This is the way, my daughter; walk in it.” Will I shrug off God’s counsel for me and go my own way(s), on my own, because I want to and think It’s Ok? Or will I hear the directions of the One who knows all and sees all, and loves me beyond all power, all possessions and all prejudices? Father God, help me heed your voice behind me say, This is the way; walk in it
Great is our Lord, and abundant in power; his understanding is beyond measure. . (Psalm 147:5)
When we walk with the Lord, in the light of his Word,
What a glory he sheds on our way.
If we do his good will, he abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
