I love to walk Idahos paths and trails and enjoy its grandeur and picturesque beauty. Im often reminded that these treks are symbolic of our spiritual journey, for the Christian life is simply walkingwith Jesus alongside as our companion and guide. He walked through the land of Israel from one end to the other, gathering disciples, saying to them, Follow Me (Matt. 4:19).
The journey is not always easy. Sometimes giving up seems easier than going on, but when things get difficult, we can rest a while and renew our strength. In Pilgrims Progress, John Bunyan describes the arbor on Hill Difficulty where Christian caught his breath before continuing the climb. His scroll provided comfort, reminding him of the Lords continual presence and sustaining power. He got a second wind so he could walk a few more miles.
Only God knows where the path will take us, but we have our Lords assurance, I am with you always (Matt. 28:20). This is not a metaphor or other figure of speech. He is real company. There is not one hour without His presence, not one mile without His companionship. Knowing Hes with us makes the journey lighter.
Read: Matthew 4:18-22
