“Thus says God the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and its offspring, who gives breath to the people on it and spirit to those who walk in it, “I am the Lord, I have called You in righteousness, I will also hold You by the hand and watch over You, and I will appoint You as a covenant to the people, as a light to the nations,” (Isaiah 42:5-6)
“I will hold you by the hand.” Do you see the simplicity of what the Lord is saying. The Lord will come and take our hand and walk with us through every valley of the shadow of death. The Lord has done this, just as He said, and the Savior has come to lead those who would take His hand and walk with them through all of life. The covenant is sealed when You walk with the Lord.
Lord, I often make it so much more complex than it needs to be. You have offered Your hand to walk with me all the days of my life, leading me towards eternal life. Guide me this day O Lord that I would walk in the newness of life that You grant, knowing that You have and are accomplishing all that You have purposed and in accordance with the Word You have given.
Lord Jesus, You are the One the Word has spoken about from the beginning. You have come to take my hand and lead me this day. Lead me in Your righteousness that I may walk according to Your direction and in harmony with Your unchanging Word. Guide the steps I take this day that they may be faithful to what You would have me do, following You, my Lord and Savior. Amen.
