‘I walk with God in perfect holiness.’
Today’s idea but states the simple truth that makes the thought of sin impossible. It promises there is no cause for guilt, and being causeless it does not exist. It follows surely from the basic thought so often mentioned in the text; ideas leave not their source.
There is a light in you which cannot die; whose presence is so holy that the world is sanctified because of you. The light in you is what the universe long to behold. All living things are still before you for they recognise Who walks with you.
Who walks with me? This question should be asked a thousand times a day till certainty has ended doubting and established peace. Today let doubting cease. God speaks for you in answering your question with these words
I will walk with God in perfect holiness. I light the world, I light my mind and all the minds which God created on with me.
Today I held a two week old baby. I’d forgotten how small and delicate they can be. He was eight pounds, so tiny, so fragile and totally trusting. He has no concerns whatsoever that his needs will be met, he just knows that when he cries he will be fed or changed. He’s not old enough to want to be amused, but I’m sure that in time his doting parents will do that too.
This baby has no guilt about keeping his parents awake at night, has no thoughts of sin or of doubting its right to be present on this earth and to have his every wish attended to. I thought a lot about the fact that it’s what God wants us to do; to get on with our lives knowing that He walks with us every step of the way. The baby’s not yet had layers of fear piled on it yet, and so it is happy, and so are its parents.
