Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Your Emmaus walk…

“That same day two of Jesus’ disciples were going to the village of Emmaus, which was about seven miles from Jerusalem. As they were talking and thinking about what had happened, Jesus came near and started walking along beside them. But they did not know who he was. Jesus asked them, “What were you talking about as you walked along?” The two of them stood there looking sad and gloomy. Then the one named Cleopas asked Jesus, “Are you the only person from Jerusalem who didn’t know what was happening there these last few days?”” (Luke 24:13–18, CEV)

Nearly two thousand years ago another disciple of Jesus a man named Peter told people to beware an evil Predator like a roaring lion prowls around seeking who he may devour. Even today there are those who unwillingly journey into the snares of the Predator who seemingly struggle alone with the consequences of their sins. There are also those who find themselves struggling through life feeling as if they were alone. A wife and husband prays over difficult decisions yet struggle through as if they were alone. A woman seemingly struggles by herself with the journey of an aging body. A widower thinks he journeys alone into the unknown future. Parents think they stand alone as they watch their children journey to independence. A Pastor begins carving out a new future for his flock apparently alone. Seemingly alone men and women desperately fight to make a clean break from their past

The entire world needs to walk the road to Emmaus, all the world needs to know that it is not alone. The walk on the road to Emmaus is a walk of knowing that Jesus walks every second of everyday not just with us but in us as well, it is the assurance that we never walk alone. Walking on the road to Emmaus is the revelation that the Prince of Peace walks with us blessing us in ways we cannot describe. Walking the road to Emmaus illustrates the undying love of the Savior patiently waiting, hoping, and praying to hear, “for the voice of please help me LORD.” The journey on the road to Emmaus may be long and hard but the promise is the power to overcome the Predator is only a prayer away.

The walk to Emmaus is walk of a Savior who sometimes wishes to remain unseen hoping and praying that the very one’s he died for will build a relationship based on faith not on sight. The walk on the road to Emmaus is that of a Savior who sometimes wishes simply to walk and talk with those whom he loves.

Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 LEB)
