Day 245 –
When surrounded by darkness keep on walking with God.
Hosea 11:12 “Ephraim has surrounded me with lies, and the house of Israel with deceit, but Judah still walks with God and is faithful to the Holy One.”
All I can say is, the choice you make will be difficult, but the blessing of the decision to walk with God will be worth it.
When you find yourself surrounded by evil and attacked on every side, your physical body will become weak, your mental state exhausted and quite possibly your overall presence will be defeated. But if you can keep your eyes focused on God, continuing to seek the light within the darkness and walking along the paths of righteousness, you will be surrounded by His Presence and find yourself at Peace in the present danger.
God is always with us, but we aren’t always with Him.
It takes intentionality to realize we are walking alongside Him and fully protected by Him daily.
Have you ever been so intrenched by what’s going on around you that you didn’t even realize who was around you? And then as you come to and shake off the day dream you realize there was a ton of people around you that you know!
When evil and darkness are surrounding us it feels the same way. We are in such fear that we feel all alone, but if we would just shake off the evil and look towards the light we will realize we are walking with God. The quicker we recognize “Who” we are walking with, the sooner the “Why” of the path will become visible as we continue to faithfully follow the path of Peace toward our Heavenly Home.
