I take you by the hand, so that we never have to walk different directions, different speeds. I take you by the hand, so that you never have to wonder if I am with you or not. I take you by the hand to lead you along paths of righteousness.
These paths that we travel require you to keep clinging to Me. I lead you this way for the sake of My Name. Remember that you bear My Name, and I will not allow it to be dishonored. For you to continue walking closely with Me, enjoying My love and protection, you must honor My Name…you must do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Me.
It delights Me that you have chosen this path. Don’t be afraid and don’t worry, I will help you each step of the way. I am not going to tell you that there will be no obstacles and no pain, but I will tell you that I will be there with you no matter what you face.
Don’t look back, child. Keep pressing forward. You have put your hand to the plow, so please keep going. Trust Me, the journey will be worth it.
I am with you always…
Lord, take me by the hand and lead wherever You choose. I am Yours. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
