Genesis 5:22, 6:9b, 2 Chronicles 27:6, NIV 2011
After he became father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years…
Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God.
Jotham grew powerful because he walked steadfastly before the Lord his God.
Enoch, Noah and Jotham all walked with the Lord. Genesis 5:24, “Enoch walked faithfully with God: then he was no more, because God took him away.” Moses’ words “walk with the Lord” differentiate those who were merely a part of God’s Kingdom and those who actually made a concerted effort to follow His ways. Noah actually put hands and feet to his faith by building the ark God called him to build. Jotham, 2 Chronicles 27:2, “He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord…” but needed to remove the high places as well. Walking with the Lord is a step-by-step process for all believers.
Riding with my husband this morning I glanced at a church reader board I’d never seen. “Exercise daily, walk with the Lord!” Smiling, I grabbed my phone to add it as a note lest I forget it. Finding 15,000 steps or more each day is the perfect time for me to walk and talk with Him. It’s great exercise but also time away from others and quality time with the Lord. Steadfastly walking with the Lord is where I find His direction.
What keeps us walking with the Lord?
