Am I walking with God? I don’t have to tell you that we live in a very busy world. Walking with God doesn’t mean we will always be on our knees in prayer. It is a spiritual walk inside our heart and our spirit as we go about our every day duties and responsibilities. We can have a heart to please God. The Bible says:
“Enoch walked with God: . .” Genesis 5:24
Enoch lived for three-hundred-sixty-five years and I’m sure he did not spend all day, every day of his life on his knees in prayer. Not a whole lot is said about Enoch’s life, but he would have had to work hard every day to take care of his family. He surely lived a normal life for the day that he lived in.
But Enoch purposed in his heart to walk with God. There was no Bible for him to read; it had not yet been written. There was no Savior and no Holy Spirit to help him and yet his heart was fixed. He had a determination to walk with God.
“. . . he [Enoch] had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Hebrews 11:5
If the grace of God could help Enoch back then, how much more should we who have salvation, the Bible, and the Holy Spirit be able to walk with God and live victorious in our day! Like Enoch, we must have a fixed purpose and determination. We must take advantage of every means of help and grace that are available to us.
“and if it was possible then, it is surely, through the same grace, possible now; for God, and Christ, and faith, are still the same.” –Adam Clarke
Let us determine in our hearts that we will walk with God every day.
“It is not the want of grace nor of the means of grace that is the cause of the decay of this primitive piety, but the want of faithfulness in those who have the light, and yet will not walk as children of the light.” – Adam Clarke
We could never learn all there is to know about walking with God, but I know He will help us if we really want Him to. He can and will give us the grace to walk with Him and please Him in everything that we do.
“And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. . .” Colossians 3:17
