WALK BEFORE ME

Genesis 5: 24  
(KJV)

24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

Think about it

WALK BEFORE ME….

Abraham walked with God. Enoch also walked with God. Enoch started a conscious walk with God when he was 65 years old. Abraham was already 99 years when he started a conscious walk with God. For both the experience was life changing. So it may not be too late for someone reading this. Walking with God in the context of Abraham and Enoch involved a DELIBERATE, CONSCIOUS, CONSISTENT, DAILY effort towards a deeper fellowship with God. It’s impossible for a man’s life to be thesame after engaging in this sort of consistent walk with God.

The scriptures did not mention categorically whether Enoch and Abraham were worshipers. But it will be safe to assume they were. The reason is simple: God inhabits praises. God does not inhabit complain or grumbling. He feels welcomed in an atmosphere of worship. For anyone to have an intense, long lasting, daily fellowship with God, that person will need to also be comfortable with a worship atmosphere and learn to create such for the presence of God. 

As we embark on a new day, as part of your WALK with him, Why not determine to be at peace today. Worship him with your peace. Worship in your spirit. Worship him from your inner most being, Worship him with your mouth.
