Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 30 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day two with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a fearless path.
Walk a Fearless Path
“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
Psalm 23:4 (NIV)
What things tend to fill you with fear? Where is the scariest place that you have ever walked? What made you so fearful there? What brings you comfort and peace when you are in the midst of frightening circumstances? What gives you the courage to overcome your fears? How would you walk in a way that shows no fear?
For most of us, having a trusted friend with us in the midst of our fears can be a great help and comfort. We gain courage in knowing we don’t have to walk our path alone. In the familiar twenty-third Psalm, David says he can walk a fearless path because he knows God is with him. As you pray, ask God to continually remind you of His presence in the midst of all your fears. Pray that your trust of Him would grow as you recognize His ever-abiding presence. Pray that your life would be lived in a way that you become the presence of Jesus that someone else needs when facing their fears. Pray that you would not be distracted in your walk with God by fear but that you would enjoy a fearless walk with Christ.
