Hedge of Faith (c) 2010 Jim Yackel
The distractions are great, but we must keep focused on the path ahead. There are things that lurk in the bushes that would harm us if they could, but with the hedge that is the Holy Spirit upon us we are safe. But, some have walked this path without the Hedge of Faith and they have been devoured…
What can be worse than traveling alone, just to hear the
snapping and rustling of the bushes along your path as you walk into nightfall? What is it that is moving through those bushes, keeping pace with you? What was that growling noise — was it some creature or just your stomach?
Aren’t we all wayfarers along this path? The answer to that question is “yes” because we all must walk. But, do we walk in the light or in the dark? Do we walk alone, or are we in good company? Do we walk unprotected, or are we surrounded by the Hedge of Faith?
My faith is in the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, who is none other than Jesus. I wouldn’t consider walking without the hedge of faith in Him, for to do so I would be vulnerable to those things that lurk in the bushes, waiting to pounce and devour.
