11 Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name. 12 I will praise You, O Lord my God, with all my heart, And I will glorify Your name forevermore. 13 For great is Your mercy toward me, And You have delivered my soul from the depths of Sheol. Psalms 86:11-13 (KJV)
Walking can be powerful. It sounds simple, but walking can have profound effects on your physical and mental state. On last Sunday, Pastor G shared with us some truths about pursuing God, and some effects on the men that ‘walked’ with God. As I continued to study the “walking” as it pertains to perseverance, I notice that throughout the scriptures Christ is inviting us to ‘walk’ with him in truth. Too many people want to run in righteousness without first walking in truth. We wouldn’t expect a babe to run before he walked, why do you think God wants us to dive into theologies and doctrines without first holding His hand and walking with Him a bit. That’s where you get to know Him for who He is. RELATIONSHIP. Jesus is truth.
You remember that first walk with your sweetheart, hand in hand – getting to know everything about him/her. It’s great. It could be cold, or even raining but it didn’t matter you were focus on the one beside you. Opening our desire to walk and to know His ways, being safe in His hand is where He wants us. No need to venture out and discover on your own, stay close to Him. You can hear His voice. Pastor G said in reference to Peter – In the storm, if you keep your eyes, and ears focused on Jesus you will forget the elements all around you. That’s powerful.
When we desire truth, there will be things about ourselves that will be revealed. It’s not easy to take. That’s why not everyone who desires Christ wants truth. People want to experience Christ and His love – but they stop there. Jesus is truth. (John 1:17, John 14:6) If we continue to desire, continue to pursue, seek after, walk in His ways – we will bump into truth. Is it your desire to know truth? He invites you to know Him, to know truth. Jesus doesn’t force you into revelation, but if you walk with Him you will have the opportunity to know truth.
Walk with Christ. Know Truth. Build that relationship with the Creator and see what great things He will do in YOU.
