When we walk alone

Chapter 11

Good Monday Monday Morning to this week 12 of 2020

As we stick to the rules trying to “flatten the curve” of this pandemic we spend more time at home and are somewhat forced to change our habits. Through meeting fewer people for some,it’s really to “walk alone”. Shopping last Friday I saw many elderly going slower in the shop, they made best of the time to have a chat with a neighbor or a salesperson.

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

It’s been a while since I took out the “Bible Blender”. Let’s do that again!
I put these following verses in the mixer and have a great blend of encouragement and verses talking about the fact that we do not walk alone, come out.

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. For we walk by faith, not by sight.

Abide in me and I in you. 

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

For we walk by faith, not by sight. 

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.

Your rod and Your staff they comfort me. 

The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in. For it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

You lead me beside still waters. 

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

We will fear no evil. 

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.

Transformed by the renewal of mind.

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.

For nothing will be impossible with God. And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed.
For the Lord will not forsake his people, for his great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you a people for himself. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

For the Lord did not forsake his people. 

For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps. Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.”

Do not lean on your own understanding

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. And I shall walk in a wide place, for I have sought your precepts. Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord!

Wishing you a blessed and healthy week.

Philemon
