Walking The Beach With Jesus

Posted on August 21, 2015 at 6:20 AM


“Come walk with me, Mary, along the shores of the great sea," bid Jesus.

I readily accept His invitation. The wet sand is hard, yet our feet make slight indentations in it. . . until the waves come ashore and scrape them from the sand . . . and they're gone.

"Look behind you Mary; what do you see?"

"Clear beach," I respond, "no sign of our passing together."

Jesus shares, "When looking behind you, much has been scraped away, but keep your eyes focused on Me in your present, and what truths of the past you need will always be there."

"As we walk side by side, Mary, what do your ears hear?"

I smile, "Gentle waves climbing on the sand and drawing back, also mixing with their constant motion my ears enjoy the love, kindness, understanding, caring~ all in your voice. Here on this beach with You, my Lord, is peace and rightness."


Jesus smiles too, "Warm sun, cool breezes are blessings from My Father for you Mary. But will it be always like this? See the clouds on the horizon. What do you read from them?"

"Lord, they clue me in that a storm is brewing". Soon the gentle waves grow more aggressive; breeze transforms into fierce winds causing the palms to bow before their Creator. Ahh, Lord, should we look for shelter?

Jesus looks me in the eye, "Mary, what greater shelter do you require than to walk at my side?"


Yes, what indeed? This storm causes me to put all my weight forward in order to make progress against the wind; waves climb up my legs and rain pellets sting my arms and face. But as the tempest grows more powerful, Jesus holds my arm and steadies me. His eyes are confident and kind. My physical muscles may be less than they once were, but Jesus is my sturdy support. He has always been faithful and I trust Him in this storm to walk all the way through it with me.


Psalm 16:8

I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Are you walking through a storm today? Are you trusting Jesus to support you all the way through? He is faithful, you know.


Matthew 28:20 (NKJV)

teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you;

and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
