Walking with God
In our evening studies of the so called ‘Minor Prophets’ we are introduces to major truths close to the heart of God. Listen to this for example from Micah Chapter 6 v8.
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
When we walk with someone that means we won’t be going in opposite directions. If we walk in a different direction we can’t listen to them, we can’t enjoy them, we can’t share things with them, and we won’t be able to understand them. When we walk with the Lord, our will is going to align with His will. Walking side by side with God our focus will be on Him.
Enoch was the first person we read of in the Bible who ‘walked with God.’
Genesis 5 v21-24.
Ephesians 2 v10 is one of the last places we read in the Bible we read about ‘walking with God’
“For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.”
Walking with God means deliberately taking time and making space to be in the company of Jesus. As Leonard Ravenhill once said: “Smart men walked on the moon, daring men walked on the ocean floor, but wise people walk with God.”
In 1 John 1:6-7 we read “If we say we have fellowship with him and yet keep on walking in the darkness, we are lying and not practicing the truth. But if we walk in the light as he himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”
Lets keep on encouraging one another from God’s word, both Old and New Testaments to keep on ‘Walking with God’. Bless you. Frank
