How to Walk With God

Walk with God and trust and believe in Him completely. God looks for a walking partner who trust, seeking His face at all times and believing in Him blindly at any cost. Right from the beginning God had a relationship with his hand made creations of Adam and Eve that found them “walking in the garden in the cool of the day” (Genesis 3:8). God created man for the enjoyment of a walking relationship that involved companionship, dialogue, intimacy, joint decision-making, mutual delight, and shared dominion. God loves and wants to walk along with you, that is the reason why his arms of grace have been pulling you into a closer walk with him.

Enoch was the first man to disclose the real delight of walking with God. He learned how to walk with God with every facet of life. We always look to seek God when we go through problems or want something from God. But Enoch was one who found every opportunity to walk with God. In order to know about the dimension of relationship certainly required an intense spiritual pursuit, and then when he found it the Lord made a graphic statement by catching him up to heaven.

Walking with God is like that. When we enter into an intimate heart relationship with God through faith in God (Hebrews 10:22), He becomes our heart’s greatest desire. Knowing Him, hearing His voice, trust in God, sharing our hearts with Him, and seeking to please Him become our all-consuming focus. He becomes everything to us. Meeting with Him is not an activity reserved for Sunday morning. The ultimate goal of each Christians is to “live in a state of unbroken worship.” This could be feasible only when we start to walk with God.

Personal Prayer

Firstly, in order to walk with God by private, personal prayer. The spirit of grace is always accompanied with the spirit of supplication. It is the very breath of the new creature, the fan of the divine life. By it, the spark of holy fire, kindled in the soul by God, is not only kept in, but raised into a flame. Neglect of private prayer has been frequently an inlet to many spiritual diseases, and has been attended with fatal consequences. Origen observed that on the day a certain Christian offered incense to an idol, “he went out of his closet without making use of private prayer.” Prayer is one of the most noble parts of the believer’s spiritual armor which helps to build the faith in God and also trust in God. “Praying always,” says the apostle, “with all manner of supplication” (Eph. 6:18).

Meditation

Holy and frequent meditation is another blessed means of keeping up a believer’s walk with God. “Prayer, reading, temptation, and meditation,” says Luther, “makes a minister.” And they also make and perfect a Christian. Meditation is to the soul what digestion is to the body. Holy David found it so, and therefore he was frequently employed in meditation, even in the night season. We read also of Isaac’s going out into the fields to meditate in the evening; or, as it is in the margin, to pray.

Obedience

Those who would maintain a holy walk with God must walk with him in His commandments as well as in His providences. It is recorded of Zacharias and Elizabeth, that “they walked in all God’s ordinance, as well as commandments, blameless” (Luke 1:6).

Seek the Guidance of the Spirit

In order to walk closely with God, his children must not only watch the motions of God’s providence around them, but they must also take note of the moving of his blessed Spirit within their hearts. “As many as are the sons of God, are led by the Spirit of God” (Rom. 8: 14). They give up themselves to be guided by the Holy Ghost, just as a little child gives its hand to be led by a nurse or parent. It is no doubt in this sense that we are to be converted, and become like little children. However, it is the quintessence of enthusiasm* to pretend to be guided by the Spirit without the written Word. Yet, it is every Christian’s bounden duty to be guided by the Spirit in conjunction with the written word of God.
