Walking with God
“He hath showed 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) The life of Enoch is descriptive of the Christian’s life, and it is said that he “walked with God.” (Genesis 5:24) Hand in hand with God, heart in heart, and life in life, is the true Christian way. In order to walk thus with God, we must be in agreement with Him; for two cannot walk together heart in heart unless they be in agreement. To be agreed with God implies submission to the divine will. It is to go where He leads.
“He leadeth me” (Psalm 23:2-3) is the sentiment of the Christian heart. He may sometimes lead in a laborious path; nevertheless we go. He may lead in a way that brings suffering and self-denial; He may take our loved ones from us; He may call somebody dear to us to a foreign field, or He may call us. If we would walk with Him, we must not draw back, but say, “Lord, Thy will be done. I will go with Thee all the way.” Such a walk may lead over some thorny paths and through some waters and fiery trials, but it pleases God and ends in heaven. So onward let us go.
