Reflecting back over the past 2 and a half years, looking at the journey we’ve been on from Ezra/Nehemiah to LFJT to cultivating an appetite for the things of God, it thrilled me to think of all God has been wanting to show and teach us. How timely some of the passages we looked at. How beautiful to see themes jump out convicting us of God’s leading. Yet rather than quickly moving on to what may be next I wonder if to complete this part of the journey a reminder and celebration of the gift and work of God’s Holy Spirit is necessary.
It is often said that the Christian life is a journey, marked out by events and circumstances that bring with them enjoyment, sadness, success, failure, laughter and sorrow. However the Christian does not make his or her way through life alone, nor in a random fate determined progression that avoids some pitfalls but falls foul of others. Rather the Christian walks with God, he leads us to and then into His promise and His blessing. For our part we learn to walk in obedience to His Word, and in confidence that whatever we face the Victory is ours in Christ.
