Walk with God – Bible Study, Prayer

“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.”
Genesis 5:21-24 ESV
Where does God truly fit in your life? Is God behind, above, or in front of you?
Or, is God walking with you? When someone walks with you, it has a sense of
friendship, love, and equality. Yes, God has unlimited power, Grace, love, and
mercy. Yes, God should be in your driver’s seat. However, God loved Enoch so
much that Enoch avoided death because Enoch walked with God. So, it is clear
God wants to walk with you.
What does it really mean to walk with God? Well, I see it as treating God with
love by praying to Him often. This goes beyond just asking for things. It’s like
having a coffee with a good friend and/or loved one and talking about anything
for hours. While having coffee, you aren’t into asking for a gain or help, you just
enjoy the conversation. I have prayed many times actually having a conversation
with Him. I am not asking for anything, I just want His company. I pray to Him
“just because.” Sometimes, I have questions I pose to Him I just can’t answer.
Sometimes, I thank Him for loving a wretched sinner who still slips up here and
there. I might read passages in the Bible and ask Him what the passage truly
means. I have been known to simply ask Him if I will ever have all my questions
God loves faith. I have found God especially likes walking with you. You want
nothing but His company. You just want Him to be there with you. You want Him
to show you what He sees as important for you. It’s just a loving relationship
where you want Him in your life. He is all you really need.
So, when you pray, do you walk with Him at times? You want nothing but His
Company. You just want a conversation with no needs at the moment. If you
haven’t tried this, I highly recommend it. It will take your faith to a whole new
