GOD WILL WALK WITH YOU
God's Prayer Power - Session 5
God wants us to know there is a road for us, His children, and He will walk with us on that road. Let us pray that God, our Father, will reveal to us how we can come closer to Him, and to help us surrender to Him our all. Above all helping us to be pleasing unto to Him.
Our verse today is Isaiah 35:8
"And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein."
What three words reach out to you? For me the words highway, holiness and wayfaring.
Highway - a road
Holiness - life devoted to God
Wayfaring - a traveler on foot
When we think of a highway, we think of our roads like interstates that are paved. In old testament times a highway was just a rough path that was beaten by use. They weren't constructed like ours. If the weather was dry, the road was dry, if it rained, the road was muddy.
But the word highway is actually made of two words. High and way. Pertaining to roads if they are built up higher than the ground, then the water would not stand on them creating water courses and mud puddles. But for us, the spiritual meaning of highway is Jesus. He is our high way. This road is for us who are believers in Christ, children of the most high God. He will travel on this road with us, never leaving our side.
God is Holy. And the road we travel, if we choose Him, is the way of holiness. To become more intune with God, more Christ like, we will need to desire to know Him better, to spend time with Him reading His word to learn more about Him. We must remember God's way is not man's way. We must choose who to follow. To walk on the highway of holiness we will choose God's way. For this is the way to our eternal home with Him.
A traveler on a journey. Some would call them a pilgrim on a journey. The definition is a traveler on foot. Most of us are familiar with a song Wayfaring Stranger. That song was written in 1909. The words went:
I'm just a poor wayfaring stranger traveling through this world below. There is no sickness, no toil, nor danger In that bright land to which I go.
In truth, we are wayfaring strangers in this world, but we are not alone, God is with us, walking this path, leading and guiding, all we need do is listen and follow.
Our prayer today is based on Isaiah 35:8
Help us become more like Christ.
Help us surrender to you to
work your will in our lives.
Clean out of our lives what
is unclean and wash
us white as snow.
Prepare us to walk the way you
Have chosen for us so that we
May be holy in thy sight. Amen
This week let us spend time reading Isaiah 35 to learn more of that road.
God bless each and everyone of you this week!
