Genesis 4 to 7 Two men in Gen 4 to7 are noted as “walking” with God. Although Moses did not note the character of Enoch, the author of Hebrews gives us this insight: “[Enoch] was commended as having pleased God.” [Heb 11:5]. Noah is noted as a righteous and blameless man. [Gen 6:9] Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him. [Gen 5:24] These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his generation. Noah walked with God.[Gen 6:9]
So what does it mean to walk with God? Micah tells us: “He has told you, O man, what is good, and what the Lord really wants from you: He wants you to carry out justice, to love faithfulness, and to live obediently before your God.”
When we walk with God, we can be assured of this truth: “I will also walk among you and be your God, and you shall be my people” –[ Leviticus 26:12] When we walk with God, it is sweet communion, and “Even though [we] walk through the darkest valley, [we] will fear no evil, for God is with us. His rod and [His] staff, comfort us.” – [Psalm 23:4 author paraphrase]
As Jesus walked along the road to Emmaus with the two disciples, He opened their hearts and their understanding of the scriptures. Thus, walking with God is a time of intimacy when He reveals what we are to hear and what we are to do.
Are you walking alone or with God today?
