As we go through our day-to-day lives, it is helpful to know we’re heading in the right direction. That might mean finding the way to a new store or the home of a friend. It is really helpful for someone who is familiar with the route, to ride along with us and show us the way.
This is also true in our walk with God. It helps to really feel as if Jesus is there, right beside us, as we make decisions at our job or are coping with the stress that is usually part of every day. For many Christians getting through the day means sending a lot of little prayer “arrows” –asking for help, guidance, and patience– to God and knowing He hears and is there to help us overcome those everyday temptations.
He is always there, and if if feels like He’s not, then we know who moved!
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Mark 14:48
