He Lovingly Takes My Hand and Leads Me Along a Path
By Miss Shelly
The Intercessor saw herself reaching up and the Lord Jesus grasping her hand and pulling her gently forward.
He was a step ahead of her and they were walking together along a beautiful path. Immediately she noticed the strong yet, tender hand with the veins protruding out as He looked down when He grasped her smaller hand as a little child. He had a smile
upon His face.
All of a sudden, it reminded her of her dad she once had here on this earth. He was so strong and determined to make her the godly woman he desired her to be. She had
thought that he was so strict, but now understands very clearly why he was the way he was. She now, willingly followed and allowed the Lord to pull her forward.
Immediately tears fell as she
saw this vision of the Lord leading her in paths of righteousness for His names sake; leading her forward besides still waters as she chose to surrender to Him and put her trust in Him. As He grasped her hand, she felt the surge of Love flood her body
and soul and it overwhelmed her to these tears.
What a revelation of yet a simple gesture of the Lord toward her!
It was for her own good.
Why didn’t we all realize this? It’s always for our own good! It was because He loved us so much! It’s always extremely painful for Him, just as a caring father to his precious daughter, to see us stubbornly be disobedient
to His Word, designed specifically, only to protect us . . .
