To walk with Jesus all the way, requires faith. Sometimes the way might seem unclear but keep walking because Jesus is walking with you. I will never leave you nor will I forsake you. This is His promise to us. This is our confidence. To walk in faith is to embrace Jesus’ promises in the midst of impossibilities and to maintain the confidence to believe that somehow, some way, He can deliver. He is able! Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. This substance is our title deed, our guarantee that gives us the biblical rights to possess the promise. Walking with Jesus will improve our faith to believe Him to reveal the promise. Walking with Jesus inspires confidence to hope in Him for the promise. Walking with Jesus increases our passion to stay the course even in the midst of uncertainty. The closer we walk with Jesus, the closer we are to the promise. The promise is set for an appointed time. Everlasting life is the ultimate promise that Jesus made possible for us because of the Cross. We walk by faith and not by sight. It is not so much what we see naturally that is convincing, but it is what we see through the lenses of faith. Walking by faith is living by faith. And the just shall live by faith. It means absolute trust and dependence on Jesus. Walking by faith means relinquishing all control to Jesus. We must surrender everything to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we can ask or think. To walk by faith means to walk with Jesus all the way despite the cost. Trust Him now and trust Him forever. This is the attitude at Lent!
O Master, let me walk with thee, in lowly paths of service free. Tell me the secret, help me bear the strain of toil, the fret of care. In hope that sends a shining ray. Far down the future’s broadening way. In peace that only thou canst give. With thee O Master let me live. Inspire my faith so that I may walk with you all the way. I pray in Jesus name. Amen.
