Walking With God

"Enoch walked with God."      Genesis 5:24  

Did the people in Scripture who "walked with God" ever stumble?  They did.  Did they get off track sometimes?  Yes. But when their feet hit the floor every morning, their commitment was to walk with God throughout the day.  The drew on His strength, endeavored to do His will, and aimed toward the goal that He had set for them.  Paul writes, "I beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called" (Ephesians 4:1 NKJV).  That means you must know the direction God is leading you in and stay in step with Him.  When He acts--you act.  When He pauses--you pause. As a believer, your life shouldn't be compartmentalized into what's sacred and what's secular.  The Bible says, "in him we live, and move, and have our being (Acts 17:28).  You can't say, "In this situation, I'm operating under my own steam, but in that situation, I'm operating according to the Holy Spirit within me."  The Holy Spirit doesn't come and go from your life; He is always with you!  Here is a Scripture you need to think about: Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created" (Revelation 4:11).  What an awesome thought: You were created to bring pleasure to God!  So, one of the most important questions you can ask yourself--and frequently--is, "Lord, are my ways pleasing to you right now?" (See Proverbs 13:5-6).  When they are, you will discover that the direction He takes you in is always the right direction; His timing is always the right timing, and the results you get are always the right results.
