 Walking in the Footsteps of the Almighty: The Journey of Walking with God

There is no greater privilege than walking with God, aligning our lives with His purpose, and embracing His transforming presence. Today, we embark on a journey to explore what it truly means to walk with God, drawing wisdom and inspiration from His Word. Let us learn how this remarkable journey shapes our character, aligns our will, and empowers us to overcome the challenges of the world.

"Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him" (Gen 5:24). The original Hebrewmeaning for walked implies that him went to and fro with God, continually conversing withhim and growing closer to him. In him, we see a new kind of believer. He walked arm in armevery day with the Lord – the Lord was his very life — so much so that at the end of his life, hedid not taste death but was translated out of life (Heb 11:5). Those who walk closelywith God are translated out of Satan's reach — taken out of his kingdom of darkness and put intoChrist's kingdom of light (Col 1:13)

I. Being Like Him (Psalm 42:7; Matthew 5:48)

Walking with God implies a conscious effort to become more like Him. As Psalm 42:7 beautifully portrays, just as deep calls unto deep, our souls yearn to reflect the nature of our Creator. In Matthew 5:48, Jesus calls us to be perfect, even as our Heavenly Father is perfect. Walking with God involves growing in holiness, love, and compassion, allowing His attributes to shine through us.

II. Aligning Our Will with His (Matthew 6:10; 26:42; Romans 8:29)

Walking with God means submitting our will to His divine plan. In the Lord's Prayer, Matthew 6:10 teaches us to pray for God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. Like Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, we surrender our desires to God's sovereign purpose (Matthew 26:42). Romans 8:29 reminds us that God's ultimate goal is to conform us to the image of Christ, a process that begins with aligning our will with His.

III. Walking with God is also walking in the Spirit – Gal.5: 16; Rom.8: 4

Walking with God is inseparable from walking in the Spirit. Galatians 5:16 exhorts us to walk by the Spirit, so that we will not gratify the desires of the flesh. Romans 8:4 emphasizes that those who walk in the Spirit fulfill the righteous requirements of the law. As we allow the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us, we discover a life marked by love, joy, peace, and self-control.

IV. Overcoming the Flesh (Romans 8:5-8)

Walking with God necessitates overcoming the influence of the flesh. Romans 8:5-8 contrasts the mindset of the flesh with the mindset of the Spirit. Those who walk according to the flesh cannot please God, but those who are in Christ, walking in the Spirit, are freed from the bondage of sin. Walking with God enables us to triumph over sinful desires and live victoriously.

V. Glorifying Him at All Costs (Matthew 16:24; 1 Corinthians 10:31)

Walking with God requires a commitment to glorify Him above all else. In Matthew 16:24, Jesus calls us to take up our cross and follow Him, even if it means denying ourselves. 1 Corinthians 10:31 emphasizes that whether we eat or drink, or whatever we do, it should all be done to the glory of God. Walking with God involves prioritizing His glory over personal comfort and worldly approval.
