Walking Faith’s Road with Jesus in 2024
As I approached this coming year, I decided to go back to 2009 and my first attempt at writing devotions through the Scriptures in one year. I am revamping these for 2024 . We will be reading from Genesis to Revelation, six days a week with a video devotion published on Saturday for each week. Please join with me as we again trek through Scriptures with Jesus as He opens His Word and sets our hearts ablaze.
In the Gospel of Luke in chapter 24:13-35 two disciples of Jesus were walking on the road to a town called Emmaus. It was the first day of the week following the crucifixion of Jesus. These disciples were depressed and confused as they walked along, talking about the events surrounding Jesus’ death. They were joined by Jesus, but did not recognize Him!
Approaching them, Jesus asked what they were discussing. When they explained, Jesus chided them for their lack of faith and began to teach them from Scripture what must happen as recorded in Moses and the Prophets. When they arrived at their destination, Jesus acted as if He were going farther but they invited Him to come and have supper with them. As He broke the bread with them at the table, their eyes were opened and they recognized Him! It was Jesus! He was alive! Suddenly, He disappeared leaving them with hearts ablaze and new-found faith!
Since Jesus loves all His followers equally, would He not walk with us this year? Since He alone is the Word of God, would He not share with us everything from the Scriptures concerning Himself? Could our hearts burn with love and passion and new faith? Would He break bread with us and stay at our house?
Prayer: Father God, thank You for Your amazing love and drawing of our hearts back to You. I ask You to walk ahead of me as I follow You this year. Like those disciples, open Your Word and my eyes and help me to know You and Your heart through the Holy Spirit. Set my heart afire with love and passion and new-found faith! Bless today my daily Bread, break it in the portion I need. I give myself to You!
“And I will do whatever you ask in My Name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. You may ask Me for anything in My Name, and I will do it.” John 14:13-14
