Pilgrims’ Notes

Pilgrims’ Notes

Psalm 84:11, New International Version

For the Lord God is a sun and shield;
   the Lord bestows favor and honor;
no good thing does he withhold
   from those whose walk is blameless.
  1. The Lord is the ultimate source of both illumination and protection; through a relationship with the LORD, GOD provides pilgrims with both light and love for the journey and protection for passage - we will get from here to there!  
  1. Like a doting parent, the Lord provides attention and devotion which far exceeds what we deserve; the purpose of pilgrimage is for us to become closer to GOD.  
  1. Pastor McKee’s testimony and perhaps yours too!

All of my good days really do outweigh my bad days - the song is correct, GOD has a divine way of flooding my life with goodness, even when the goodness is in disguise.

As a pilgrim journeying on purpose, the faith I have in GOD not only confirms arrival to my destination, but I am also the recipient of stored blessings along the way - there are still blessings in store for those whose walk is righteous.
