People who walked with God
How do you walk with a God you cannot see? God is Spirit. But if he was human, we could imagine walking with him. Yet we know that God’s Spirit dwells within every child of God. So in essence, shall we conclude that all believers walk with God since they all have his Spirit within?
Does the indwelling of God’s Spirit indicate walking with God? The Lord spoke through the prophet Amos and said “Do two walk together, unless they have agreed to meet?” To walk together, there must be agreement. Amos was talking about God and the nation of Israel. Israel had not “walked with God” as they should have. They went their own way.
For Enoch and Noah, we can imagine that they were in agreement with God as they “walked with God” on the journey of life. But the human tendency is to go our own way – rather than God’s way. There has to be a way to deal with this struggle of “two ways.”
As an antidote to this dilemma, God said,
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God and they shall be my people (Jer 31:31).
This verse states that God’s laws will become etched in our hearts and our hearts will be aligned with God’s desires. Does this look like a good recipe for walking with God?
