THE SPIRITUAL WALK
Psalm 128:1-2 “Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in his ways. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.”
The Scene: Landscape of a steep hill that rises sharply, then near the top its slope becomes more gradual. This picture represents the mature Christian’s spiritual walk through life. The cloud is symbolic of God watching from above with the 3 birds in flight representing the Trinity.
The Christian’s life, at first, is a hard climb, much of the time while Satan attacks frequently, trying to discourage the life and get the Christians back into their sinful ways.
Usually there comes a time, in the Christian’s walk, which brings mature spirituality, by reading God’s Word and hearing from the Holy Spirit, recognizing His voice. He begins to take hold, as the Christian lets go of the former self.
As Christians mature in their walk with God, it can become easier to recognize the enemy’s ways, temptations, etc. and shun them, through much prayer and meditation on Holy Spirit directed Scriptures. Christians will never in this life become perfect, but we can hope to become mature.
Psalm 145:18-21 “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them.The Lord watches over all who love him, but the wicked he will destroy. My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.”
