Walk Beside God

Walk Beside God
Author: Pat Aman

And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismaued. Deuteronomy 31:8

I learned at a young age, that if my parents and I went somewhere that if I stayed close to them and I did not walk away they protected and watched over me. They directed me and I learned lessons of safety and protection and it helped to me stay out of trouble. If I started to turn and go in a different direction, they would call me back. When I listened and obeyed, I knew I was safe.

This in turn taught me fast that when I am walking with someone that obviously I am not going to walk in opposite directions. If I walk in a different direction I can’t listen to them, I can’t enjoy them, I cannot share things with them, and I won’t be able to understand them.

This is the way it is when we walk with the Lord, our will is going to align with His will. Since we are walking side by side with Him our focus will be on Him.

When we are constantly walking with someone we are going to understand them better than we ever did. We are going to know their heart. Walking with God is not just a time in the prayer and Bible study, it’s a lifestyle that we can only obtain through Jesus Christ. It is an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father.

As God has me on a new venture. God has told me what I need to do, but, as humans even myself, I still want to hold on to some things and not let God take the lead.

But God is trying to show me, that part of the time is over, and new ministry has begun. It is time to walk on new ground. Healing ground. Restoration ground.

God is using my gift of writing poetry, devotions and books as my new venture.

Even though He had to sit me down hard, to the place of trials, hurt, anger and then nubbiest so I could listen to Him, and to put right in front of my face something very special and important in the gifts He wants me to use.

So, as I finally listened and obey in other words walked in the direction God has for me, a door has begun to open fast.

Below are three great quotes by the great men.
“Those who walk with God, always reach their destination.” – Henry Ford

“If I walk with the world, I can’t walk with God.” – Dwight L. Moody

“God’s mighty power comes when God’s people learn to walk with God.” – Jack Hyles

Maybe today, God had talked to you. Maybe He has asked you to make a move in a new direction.
All I can say, if He has, listen and be obedient. For God will never fail you. And when one door shuts, a bigger door opens.
