Each Step of the Way ~ hymn

I walk with the Savior

If you were to walk with someone of great importance, how would you do it? Would you walk in front of them? Probably not because that would make you appear as though you thought of yourself as more important. Would you walk next to them? Again, probably not as that is somewhat presumptous about your status with them. Would you walk behind them? This is the most likely scenario, at least for me. I can’t imagine myself even walking close behind someone of importance, though. I would follow but not very close.

But with Jesus, we have something different. This man of importance walked among man, showing us how we are to walk. God gave us this very specific example and many were given the beautiful opportunity to literally walk beside Jesus, to be with Him, to walk along the road with Him.

And when we seek scripture, we see many where God walked among His people and asks us to walk with Him.

My favorite: Micah 6:8

He has shown you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly,
To love mercy,
And the walk humbly with your God?

In Genesis 3, we see God walking through the garden, seeking Adam and Eve. Genesis 5:22 tells us of Enoch walking with God. Psalm 23 is a well known passage where we hear of God walking with man, specifically in verse 4. In Malachi 2:6, we read of Levi having walked with God in peace and equity.

These are just a few of the verses referring to walking with God. But do you see how few of them have man trailing behind, waiting to see what happens? God has provided a way for lowly me to walk alongside Him, for Him to be my protector, for Him to be peace and provider for me. What a blessing that is.

This hymn discusses walking with Jesus and allowing Him to guide and provide. A lovely song that I enjoyed singing this morning at worship. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Blessings,
Lori, At Home.

Each step of the way

Each Step Of The Way

words and music: Thelma M Jordan (1962)

I walk with the Savior
Each step of the way,
I trust Him to guide me
By night and by day;
Not dreading tomorrow
Nor what it may bring,
I’m safe in the keeping
Of Jesus the King.

Refrain:
Each step of the way
By night and by day
Leads nearer the home
Eternally fair,
Where we shall meet loved ones,
Awaiting us there,
Who walked here with Jesus
Each step of the way.

With joy we shall enter
The city up there,
Of wonderful beauty
And mansions all fair;
His own shall be changed and
Made like Him that day,
Because we’ve walked with Him
Each step of the way. Refrain
