‘Keep walking and don’t get comfortable,’ Jesus said

If we are walking, we are not staying in one place — unless perhaps we are on a treadmill.

Based on today’s verse, do you feel at times you’re walking through the valley of the shadow of death? This is referring to life’s tough times when you’re at breaking point, and evil is all around you, and fear steals your faith.

During these tough times, it’s easy to get discouraged. I love what it says in the verse, “though I walk through…” So no matter what evil you are facing today, know this: you are not alone, and you are just walking through. You don’t have to stop and in the tough times, just keep walking through. They are only temporary. Hallelujah!

Today, don’t allow fear to paralyse you in the middle of “the valley of the shadow of death.” Remember, God is with you. He is walking beside you. He is strengthening you. He is making a way of escape for you. He is lining up people and situations to bring you out of that tough place into a place of strength and victory. Don’t give up! Press on and walk through, staying focused as you walk. Have a vision of your life on the other side of the valley. See yourself more loving, more faithful, stronger and more blessed than ever before. As you keep moving forward and walking through, you will get to the other side and experience the victory God has for you!

“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me…”

(Psalm 23:4, NKJV)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, thank You for Your faithfulness toward me. Father, thank You for walking with me in the hard times of life when I feel like giving up and giving in. God, I won’t stay or stop in my negative, discouraging or evil trial, I will keep walking forward keeping my eyes on You. I trust that You will carry me and care for me as I go through my valley, to a place of victory and strength, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

Bible Verses about Walking with God and Jesus

We can find many references in scripture of “walking with God and Jesus,” beginning with God coming down in the cool of the evening to walk with Adam and Eve ( 3:8). Other references include:

• â€œ…because you have saved my life from death, saved my feet from stumbling, so that I can walk before God in the light of life” (Psalm 56:13 CEB).

• â€œThe people who know the celebratory shout are truly happy! They walk in the light of your presence, Lord!” (Psalm 89:15 CEB).

• â€œCome, house of Jacob, let’s walk by the Lord’s light” (Isaiah 2:5 CEB).

• â€œThe people walking in darkness have seen a great light. On those living in a pitch-dark land, light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2 CEB).

In addition, just a few of the many passages found in the New Testament are given in John 8:12, John 12:35-36 and 1 John 1:7.

  1. Thank you, Lord, for sending your Son to make peace with us, not by turning a blind eye to our sins but by paying for them on the cross. We know you are just and will be a just judge when you judge the world. We pray for our neighbors and friends and family that they may run to you for mercy and find it while the door of mercy is still open, if they have not already found peace with you.
