Walking With Our God

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

The Bible is filled with stories of the lives of men and women who did great things for God. Some performed miracles and mighty deeds. Some were prophets and priests; others were kings. Some displayed great wisdom. Some were persecuted. Throughout history, others followed their example with lives of faith and obedience.

All of these men and women were honored in some way. Yet none of them received what clearly seems to be the greatest honor. No, that honor was given only to Enoch because of one thing: He walked with God.” Because he had this kind of intimate relationship with God, God “took” Enoch.

This so clearly demonstrates the heart of God. Yes, He wants our obedience and service. He longs for people who will be passionate about His Word and be witnesses for the Gospel. But clearly, He wants a personal relationship with each of us, as individuals.

It is so easy to lose perspective. How effortless it can be to place our emphasis on actions! We can feel that our success in the Kingdom of God is based on the deeds we’ve done. Sometimes we even feel guilty and inadequate if we haven’t received attention.

Yes, God wants us to be kind and compassionate, to demonstrate His power and participate in ministry, to receive His blessing. But we must never lose sight of this fact: God first wants our personal, intimate fellowship. He wants us to walk with Him, not just once in a while, but every day.

Today, take time to fellowship with God. Read His Word. Focus on seeking His Kingdom. Don’t just pray once in a while—speak to Him constantly. Listen to His voice. In everything you do, be conscious of His presence. He is with you, every step of the way.
