Lessons of the Ledge 4

Enemy of fear must leave! “Jesus I trust in You.” My steps have slowed as the darkness descends. I am tired after a strenuous day and fear is trying hard to paralyze my body. I lean into the rock closing my eyes. “Jesus is my Rock. Jesus is my Rock” becomes my mantra. “I can fully trust in Him. He has never failed me; He will not fail me now”~ with an army of words I fight the demon of fear.

Psalm 61:2 (AMP)
From the end of the earth will I cry to You, when my heart is overwhelmed and fainting; lead me to the rock that is higher than I [yes, a rock that is too high for me].

Opening my eyes I notice the trail has a glow to it (like the holds on the cliff where Jesus led me to climb). Despite the night's backness, I can see the ledge!! Slowly I begin to move again. Jesus always shows me the way, and He does not fail me tonight. The pathway is a little tricky here, but staying close to the rock steadies me. I notice another larger glow ahead, and as I get closer my narrow roadway turns and there is a hidden shelf of sorts and a small fire is burning.

Jesus, You are so good to me! You have everything prepared for me to rest. His gentle presence fills the space. Jesus, You take me on interesting journeys always teaching me, challenging me. Now I sit and relax. Looking up, I admire the beauty of a star sparkled sky lighting the blackness of His universe, holding so many mysteries; I revel in the knowledge that the Creator is here with me. Lord, just sitting here in Your presence is treasure, but I also know it’s just a respite. There is more arduous work ahead.

“Mary, Mary, have I not told you to find contentment in the moment? Why must you anticipate the struggles of the future? If I have carried you through this far, will I abandon you tomorrow, or the next day? How about next year? When will you learn to totally trust me with your future as wells your present? Oh, Jesus, I am sorry; You are right. You have promised to always be with me.

Matthew 28:20 (NLV) And I am with you always, even to the end of the world.”

This lesson is one to plant deep within my soul and my spirit. It doesn’t matter how dark the night, You are always my light! It doesn’t matter how threatening the drop off, You steady my course. You are my Rock and so long as I walk this close to You always~ the narrow ledge keeps me always touching You~ You are my security. Without fail my roadway, sculpted by Your commands, takes me where You desire me to be. Thank You.

Rest. Yes, my eyes grow heavy. This shelf is a little wider than the trail, but can I trust myself to not roll off? Oh, did you catch that ‘trust myself’ bit? Lord, some day I hope I get to the place where my first instinct is to trust You. I recline next to the rock and fall asleep trusting my King will guard the night.

Have you been challenged in trusting the King instead of yourself this week?
