Daily Thought For August 23, 2014

One Step At A Time


FOLLOW ME ONE STEP AT A TIME. That is all I require of you. In fact, that is the only way to move through this space/time world. You see huge mountains looming, and you start wondering how you're going to scale those heights. Meanwhile, because you're not looking where you're going, you stumble on the easy path where I am leading you now. As I help you get back on your feet, you tell Me how worried you are about the cliffs up ahead. But you don't know what will happen today, much less tomorrow. Our path may take an abrupt turn, leading you away from those mountains. There may be an easier way up the mountains than is visible from this distance. If I do lead you up the cliffs, I will equip you thoroughly for that strenuous climb. I will even give My angels charge over you, to preserve you in all your ways. 
Keep your mind on the present journey, enjoying My Presence. 
Walk by faith, not by sight, trusting Me to open up the way before you. 

With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. — PSALM 18:29 

For He will give His angels charge over you to accompany and defend and preserve you in all your ways [of obedience and service]. They shall bear you up on their hands, lest you dash your foot against a stone. — PSALM 91:11-12 


For we walk by faith, not by sight. — 2 Corinthians 5:7
