SCRIPTURE: He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: To walk with God is to enjoy the fellowship of God.
Our anchor Scripture reveals that walking with God is one of God’s utmost requirements from our lives as His children. A person who walks with God cannot be buried in obscurity. This is because, to walk with God is to walk tall in life; to walk with God is to walk both upright and right-up in life. Therefore, it is very important to know what it means to walk with God.
Yesterday, we saw that walking with God means going in the same direction with God, being in step with Him or ordering one’s steps and moves according to God’s Word. Today, we want to look at further meanings of walking with God:
Walking with God means:
i. Living according to the principles of God’s Word
A Person who walks with God allows God’s Word to guide his steps in all areas of life – business, relationship (choice of friends), ministry, career, etc. People who walk with God live according to the principles of the Word of God while people who do not walk with God live according to the principles of the world.
ii. Keeping the company of God
To walk with God is to keep the company of God; you cannot walk with God without keeping His Company. To walk with God is to spend time with Him.
iii. Enjoying the fellowship of God
To walk with God is to enjoy the fellowship of God. Enoch enjoyed fellowship with God until God took him from the Earth. To walk with God is to enjoy fellowship with Him (Genesis5:24).
Beloved, make up your mind to live according to the principles of God’s Word, keep the company of God and enjoy His fellowship.
Remember this: To walk with God is to enjoy the fellowship of God.
1. Endeavour to live according to the principles of God’s Word.
2. Keep the company of God and enjoy His fellowship always.
PRAYER: O Lord, I ask for the grace to keep company with You and to order my life according Your Word, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
