Where walking with God leads to

Walking with God…I think I know someone with a blog by that name.

Anyways, despite the realities of the green grass and still waters of Psalm 23, walking with God is anything but a leisurely stroll through the park. It can very well lead to the via dolorosa.

That is why walking with God takes faith, conviction of heart, humility, devotion, self-denial and self-control.

Walking with God led to Enoch being translated into Heaven (Genesis 5:24), walking with God is what separated Noah from his generation (Genesis 6:9), and walking with God is what led to Abraham blessing his descendants (Genesis 24:40).

As a matter of fact, it’s only our walk with God that will cause us to bless others and be distinguished from this world and ultimately leave it to be with God just like Abraham, Noah and Enoch. So it’s worth our time to pay attention to how these three walked with God.

Did you walk with God yesterday? Do you plan on walking with him today?

The Bible clearly teaches where waking with God leads to, and that leaves a pretty clear picture of where standing still will get us.

Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you. You have a few names even in Sardis who have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with Me in white, for they are worthy. He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” (Revelation 3:3-5)
