Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him (Genesis 5:24). You shall walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, that you may live, and that it may go well with you, and that you may live long in the land that you shall possess (Deuteronomy 5:33).
When you walk with God, something wonderful happens: “For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor. No good thing does He withheld from those who walk uprightly (Psalm 84:11). God goes out of His way to lavish His love on those who loves Him! What a wonderful Father we have, who knows exactly what makes us happy and supply it without measure! It works both sides though, we too have to do our part, and continue to walk with Him in obedience.
Step by step with God enables us to do the things that pleases Him, and whatever we ask Him, He will do so according to His will not ours. We have a tendency to stray from Him, but God is faithful even if we are not, that is why we need to do things according to His will. Because of our weakness we can ask with wrong intentions, but asking in Jesus’ name, and His will, we are certain we are doing the right thing. God is always with His children, and we need to remain faithful to Him whole-heartedly. Look how closely Enoch was walking with God! We need to learn a lesson there too. Jesus was our prime example of how one walked with God. He had an interesting conversation with Philip here it is: Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us. Jesus said to him: “Have I been with you so long, and you still do not know Me, Philip? Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own authority, but the Father who dwells in Me does His works (John 14:8-10).
Jesus took no credit for the power of God in Him. He gave all the glory to His Father because He was under His authority. He did everything according to the Father’s instruction, even when He did not feet like drinking the cup, He submitted to His Father’s will (Matthew 26:42). We too have to be so close to God, that when other see us, they see the Father also, because the very power Jesus had in Him, He has given to us also (The Holy Spirit), to do the will of Him, who called us. When you look at yourself in the mirror next time, remember whose power you are walking in, and give Him the glory due to His name. Step by Step Enoch walked, and he was not, because God took him. Our turn soon.
