in His ways.
Blessed are the undefiled in the way, Who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, Who seek Him with the whole heart! They also do no iniquity; They walk in His ways. Psalms 119:1-3 NKJV
How good the ways of the Lord!
Although, I am not brand new to the concept of walking in God’s ways, I’m not over the awe which my heart felt in the beginning.
It’s not a small thing.
But God’s ways are always best.
For the past few weeks I’ve been struggling with illness.
Since I already have some health issues, it’s not been an enjoyable experience, but it has been another opportunity to learn to walk in God’s ways even more fully.
For as I’ve been unable to do, I have been able to pray, to listen to my Bible, and to meditate upon His precepts.
These days have been as much a blessing as a challenge.
I want to encourage you, as you walk through challenges, look for the Lord.
Choose to examine yourself and your walk through the lens of scripture.
You might be surprised by how much blessing God can bring from the season of challenge.
I know I have been.
For He promises us, in His Word, the blessings follow those who walk in His ways.
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for Your blessings and the promises we find in scripture. There’s simply no other way to live which brings such peace than in following diligently after You. Lord, I thank You for the blessings of trials, the lessons You have taught me through pain. Thank You. For You alone are worthy of our adoration and praise. Lord, please help me to walk in Your ways each day with fervent love for You loved me first. Thank You! Amen.
