He Who Walks with Me

Eastern NY Green Pastures

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defense to save me. (Psalm 31:1-2)

There are moments where I truly need ministering to. In all honesty, the only one I turn to for such support, is my Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus: Not my pastor, or my friends. Jesus. Yes, He may use other means to minister to me – I go where I am led (there are a couple of pastor’s from whom I glean a lot by listening to their sermons) – but at the end of the day, it is simply Jesus, moving through me; lifting, guiding and reminding me.

The fast in which I participated this past week was finally lifted today. The results of this level of obedience have seen me nothing short of flabbergasted. Going in, if I’d been shown an ounce of what God would accomplish in and through me this week, my response would have resembled this verse from Habakkuk:

“…for I will work a work in your days, which ye will not believe, though it be told you” (Habakkuk 1:5b)

Do I doubt God is capable of amazing works in my life, and that of others? Absolutely not!

Do I sometimes forget how powerfully He can move when on a mission? No way!

Am I always in awe of what He will work and do through me; that he not only loves but entrusts me that much? Crazily so! 

Through this time of fasting:

  • Prayers were answered, and done so quite rapidly.
  • I experienced the ability to forgive and move on from something, at an exponential rate, that could have been detrimental to a relationship had it not been handled supernaturally.
  • An old hurt/wound was shown to need additional work in order for it to be completely healed. This, to ensure I was free to move down the path He has revealed. The “hurt” was given away to Jesus, entrusting it would be dealt with. Not quite 32 hours later, as I sat in the choir loft praying this morning, I was moved to tears of recognition as I felt this weight being lifted. My heart in this area, sealed by His promise.
  • I was shown people in my life who were in need of love, guidance and attention – and used to work on His behalf.
  • My heart, mind and spirit advanced to a higher level of GRACE and AGAPE love.
  • Confirmation God knew I needed, in order to see His power working, was given through His Word. (Such as the two scriptures above.)

The list could go on, but I believe this evidence is sufficient, as is His grace (2 Corinthians 12:8,9)…His power, truly omnipotent.

Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. (Jeremiah 33:3)

For to He who walks with me, namely Christ Jesus, I give everything.

I lay down my self life, to take on one that more closely resembles Jesus’.  Someone reminded me today of this phrase, “He is faithful” and I concur, wholeheartedly. For He who walks with me, is: My comforter, my first TRUE love…my saving grace, my BEST friend. I owe Him that last one for all he has done in my life; for HIS faithfulness which draws and keeps me near. He moves me to trust, and seek him out, in times of need, joy, or pain; to start and finish my day.

No one listens like my Jesus. No one. Psalm 23:1-3 sums this friendship up best:

The Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want. 

He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters. 

He restores my soul;
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

Dear Jesus..there is none, and I mean NONE, like you!
