The mist is getting darker~ I believe night has come. Thank You Holy Spirit for cave shelter. I just noticed the rocks themselves seem to emanate warmth. I am in Your care Holy Spirit and You bring me warmth and a place to spend the night. Despite the darkness outside the cave, I am feeling wrapped in a soft blanket of security and love. You are always so good to me, Lord!
With the morning brightness, the mist has thinned a little, and I greet my Lord with joy! This challenge could be frightening if I had to go through it alone, but You my God are always with me. I am so thankful!
Psalm 91:14Amplified Bible (AMP)
“Because he set his love on Me, therefore I will save him;
I will set him [securely] on high, because he knows My name
[he confidently trusts and relies on Me,
knowing I will never abandon him, no, never].
The trek up this misty mountain seems easier this morning. Yes, the trail is steeper, but my spirit is full after spending the night in Holy Spirit rest. Then I follow the path around a curve and notice the mist is thicker and the trail is narrower. Ok, it’s choice time. Do I give in to fear, or do I trust my God to lead me through this difficult place?
Closing my eyes I listen for His voice. I hear His Word’s promise:
Hebrews 13:5 (AMP)
. . .for He has said, “I will never [under any circumstances] desert you
[nor give you up nor leave you without support,
nor will I in any degree leave you helpless],
nor will I forsake or let you down
or relax My hold on you [assuredly not]!”
Ok, here I go. Carefully and with senses wide open I begin the trek again. I know my God is faithful, and I know He loves me, so I am not afraid to move. Soon I am back in the fog and unable to see. My hand touches rock as my feet slide forward. It’s slow going, but I must be near the top. Suddenly I sense an obstruction ahead. Reaching out I feel a small tree or bush blocking my forward motion. Now what do I do Holy Spirit? A gentle breeze whispers and the mist clears. He has brought me to the top of the mountain. Walking to the right gives me an extraordinary view. Wow! I am so blessed, my Lord. This beauty is magnificent!
In all life challenges, no matter how huge or how small, God is always with us. We just need to call on Him and trust Him to be there. He is ever faithful.
