A Lasting Trusting Walk


It seems to me that Jesus would have had to have SO MUCH TRUST in Our Father. Not only did He trust in the plan,  He was in on the plan, and He had to trust being placed in a broken human world completely dependent upon Mary and Joseph, (and of course the angels). Then, in His last days, His trust in the Father and in the Plan led Him to have to ALSO trust in the ones who would kill Him.  He knew how obvious the devil would think and even use evil for the good of the Kingdom. Yeah, trust the journey of sacrifice to succeed – use sacrifice for supporting Salvation. Suffering in submission. Walking the Walk.

If Jesus was said to be the fourth man in the furnace, seen by King Nebuchadnezzar, when only 3 were sent in (Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, Old Testament book of Daniel 3) but who all were not burned, then Jesus was and is protected and protective. So, imagine the “dropping of the guard” that Jesus would have had to endure both at the beginning and the end of earth walking to be human and be perishable in flesh. Perish in flesh but never Spirit. 

Jesus had to have TRUST in death as he did in gaining human life. He had to accept suffering. For Jesus to show us the Way, He first had to follow the Plan. We can turn to Him because He has been there. 

His mercy includes knowing our short lives, the broken frailty of us, and yet He knows how to make us strong WITH The same Spirit He has. Fill the jar of clay of us, Lord. 

We DO have the power to walk out from death, but only by Him. Not only do we desire the strength (His Strength in us) to walk in His shoes (sandals) meaning we have chosen a life of sacrifice for the good of the Kingdom, we must walk using the power of the Spirit inside us. Holy Spirit is a personal placement of God INSIDE us, not a wind that blows us haphazardly. The steps we take are motorized with LOVE. 

Walk peacefully and purposefully today. Endure. Love endures all things… 

Jesus, we love You for Your Walk. And TRUST.  Lord, hold us close to continue to walk with You.



Proverbs 16:3-4 Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established. The Lord hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.


Matthew 16:24-27

Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it. What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul? For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father’s glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what they have done.
