Walking with God

No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. Micah 6:8

Sometime during the course of human history, going for walks with one another became an occasion not just to get some exercise (as beneficial as that was), but also to enjoy one another’s company. Many a friendship has been enhanced and many a marriage has been strengthened just through going for walks—or for hikes in the case of the more athletic, more motivated crowd.

The bible contains two examples of people it says “walked with God,” using those exact words: Enoch (Genesis 5:21-24) and Noah (Genesis 6:9). Of course, many other men “walked with God” in the sense that they remained in close relationship with Him and obeyed His commands.

But it’s probably not much of a stretch to see the use of that exact phrase in reference to Enoch and Noah as word pictures of men who walked with God in the sense that they could fellowship with Him as closely as if they literally went for a stroll with Him, sharing their hearts with Him and allowing Him to share His heart with them.

What about you today? Maybe going for a walk and taking God with you through prayer—talking and listening to Him—could enhance and strengthen your relationship with Him.
