Prepare me to Walk with God


Day 30

I have been studying what it means to walk with God. Sounds like a nice stroll doesn't it?

Let's look at Psalm 116:8-9

For You have rescued my soul from death, My eyes from tears, My feet from stumbling. I shall walk before the LORD In the land of the living.
David declares that because of what God had done for him, that walking with God meant that he must act and live under God's favor and guidance.
I particularly love the phrase "before" the Lord.  The picture that David paints for us is that we will live our lives in the presence of God. Not at a distance but in front of Him. It is interesting that the word "before" can also be translated as "Face". This changes the meaning slightly to  "I shall walk in front of the face of the Lord." It changes how I think about what I choose to do, when I know that everything is done before Him.

Prepare me Lord to walk before your face

How do we act and live under God's favor and Guidance?

Get to know Jesus by reading His word.

That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet this is no cause for shame, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until that day. 2 Timothy 1:12

I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, Philippians 3;10

When we seek to know Him, then we start to become like Him.

The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the 
Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.” Romans 8:15

We are called His children and He is our Father, because of this we can walk before Him knowing that we have favor in His sight.

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26

The Holy Spirit is a part of our lives to guide, direct and counsel us. He intercedes on our behalf even when we do not have the words to say. 

How is your walk going? How would it change if you had the thought that you were living your life in front of Jesus?


Prepare us Lord to Walk with you. Trusting that as we do so before your face, you will guide us, strengthen us, counsel us and protect us.
