As you have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving. Colossians 2:6-7 (NKJV)
How will you walk through life? Not alone, that is for sure. What do you mean that? I started out this life of faith with you. You drew me to yourself. You showed yourself to me. You made your salvation known and available to me. You called me to come to you. You helped me to place all my faith and hope and trust in you. You turned my life around. You helped me to walk away from my sinful life in the world. You gave me a new path to follow. You gave me a new race to run. You have been leading and guiding me every step of the way as I have loved, followed and served you. Have I walked perfectly? Have I always run well? No, I have not. Have I sometimes stumbled? Yes, I have. But you have always picked me up. You have dusted me off and set me back on course. You started and have established all my faith in you. Yes, I have. So, I will continue walking through life with you. That will be very good.
How will you walk through life with me? With a heart filled with faith, I will place all my hope and trust in you. My heart and mind and life with remain focused on you. I will listen to your voice. I will receive your instruction. I will follow your guidance. I will continue to follow you to where you lead me. I will continue to do whatever you ask of me. Everything about me will be rooted in you. You will feed me. You will sustain me. You will strengthen me. You will build me up and encourage me. You will keep me moving forward with you. Yes, I will.
I have more to say. What’s that? I will live a life of gratefulness. I will give you all my thanks and praise. I will acknowledge all your work in and through my life. I will give you honor. What you do in and through me will be to your credit. You will receive the glory for all that you will do in and through my life. I know that you will continue the work that you started in me. You will complete your work. You will keep on growing my faith in you. Yes, I will. For that I am thankful beyond what my words can express. That is very good.
Lord, I will place all my faith and hope and trust in you. I will walk with you through life. I will allow myself to be rooted in you. Thank you for nourishing, sustaining and strengthening me as you build up my faith in you. I am grateful for all you have done for me. Amen
