When Enoch had lived 65 years, he fathered Methuselah. Enoch walked with God after he fathered Methuselah 300 years and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were 365 years. Enoch walked with God, and he was not, for God took him.
Enoch was a little-known-about man from the Bible who gives us a wonderful picture of what it means to walk with God day by day.
Psalm 37:23-24 says, “The steps of a man are established by the LORD, when he delights in his way; though he fall, he shall not be cast headlong, for the LORD upholds his hand.” We see such a great example in Enoch of a man whose steps were established by the Lord!
We also see in Enoch a man walked in agreement with God every day. This is such a great encouragement and challenge for you and me as believers.
To walk with God like Enoch did means to agree with God about how you spend your time. It means agreeing with God about how you spend your money. It also means you agree with God about how you run your business, how you treat your family, and how you support your church!
So let me ask you: Are you in agreement with God in every area of your life?
It’s such a wonderful day when you realize that God is leading you… that you can trust in Him… and that He will open doors that you don’t have to bash down. This day comes about when you begin to just show up for duty! Think of it like this: 90% of success is just showing up and being faithful.
You know, there are a lot of Christians out there who stress about if they are or aren’t growing in their relationship with Christ. Or they worry if they’ll become the kind of spouse or parent they need to be. The great thing to remember is that God doesn’t want you or me to project ourselves into the future like that. He’s called us to walk with Him today… and let tomorrow worry about itself!
So, spend quality time with God today… even if it’s just five minutes. Then spend time with Him again tomorrow. Over time, those minutes and hours will add up… and one day you’ll look back and see how you’ve grown as a person and in your relationship with Him!
GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO WALK WITH HIM TODAY—SO LET TOMORROW WORRY ABOUT ITSELF!
