Walk By Faith

This broken road I journey on is God's will for me.  All of it!  It is also a walk by faith.

He has prepared a path of restoration!

God’s will for me is that I work through, work out, my sanctification (Phil. 2:12, 13).  It's not easy.  But there is no easy road to great purpose and great glory.  Those who don’t work--who won’t die to the flesh, who won’t stay out of the world’s clothes, who won't allow brokenness over sin lead them to repentance, who won't trust Him through the twists and turns--will not reap the sweetest reward!  

Those who do are the ones most blessed. 

They are those who are truly in a relationship with God—not just following religious forms.  They are those who talk regularly with God—not just in time of crisis.  They are those who hear frequently from God—not just what they hear from sermons.  They are those who are guided by God—not just tossed to and fro.  They are those who are rewarded both on earth and in heaven.  

They are those who travel the broken road in freedom!

It’s a choice for everyone.  Choosing great growth and great victory will be born, at times, out of great pain and/or effort (but never striving!) 

My flesh will want to trump God’s efforts.  The evil one will attempt to join with my flesh in victory over me—over God.  But what he does not accept is that ultimate, complete victory is already God’s!  And it is mine!  I just keep my eyes, my heart fixed on Jesus!  I let the refining come and join in it.  Triumph is near!

Join me in pressing in and pressing on!  Rejoice!

Rejoice in your personally planned, broken road, prepared by the Designer just for you!

WALK BY FAITH by Jeremy Camp

Would I believe you when you would say
Your hand will guide my every way
Will I receive the words You say
Every moment of every day

Well I will walk by faith
Even when I cannot see it
Well because this broken road
Prepares Your will for me

Help me to win my endless fears
You've been so faithful for all my years
With the one breath You make me
Your grace covers all I do

yeah, yeah , yeah, yeah, ya

Well I'm broken- but I still see Your face
Well You've spoken- pouring Your words of grace

Well hallelujah, hallelu
(I will walk by faith)
Well hallelujah, hallelu
(I will walk by faith)

I will walk, I will walk, I will walk by faith
I will, I will, I will walk by faith
