Morning Devotion: Questions and Answers

Question: Is it possible to walk with God? Answer: Absolutely Yes.

In God’s word we find that it is possible to walk with God.

Enoch walked with God. Genesis 5:22  And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

Genesis 5:24  And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. He had such a close walk with God that God brought Him to heaven to be with Him. WOW!

Noah walked with God.  Genesis 6:9  These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God.

Abraham walked with God. James 2:23  And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.

David walked with God. Acts 13:22b… I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.

It is possible to walk with God. In fact, if you read Hebrews chapter eleven you will find many, many people walked with God. All through the bible men and women are recorded as having walked with God. It is possible.

There is a very good reason for this possibility. We as believers walk with a living God. He knows all about us and is very interested in us. Our relationship with the Lord is based on a living God, not a set of creeds or edicts as with religion.

Your walk with God must start with a personal relationship with God. You cannot walk with someone you do not know.

1 John 4:15  Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.

Colossians 1: 27  To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

As a believer, you have God with you and in you. That my friend is personal. From that point on it is a matter of love.

Matthew 22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38  This is the first and great commandment. 39  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

I recently attended a wedding. The couple was young a beautiful and full of life ready to start a new life together. We all know this new union will need a time of intimacy and then it is getting to know one another in a greater way. They begin to walk with one another. They talk to each other and they listen to one another. They try to please each other and meet each others desire. That is walking together.

The same is with God. We listen to God, that is reading His word and we talk to God, that is prayer. We try to please God because we now have a love relationship with God. No marriage will last without this kind of relationship and no relationship with God will grow without this kind of walk.

When this young couple got married, they committed themselves to each other and God for life. All others were out. The same is with the believer and God.

Philippians 3:7  But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. 8  Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,

Our walk with God starts with a personal relationship with God, then it is a growth process ever learning and growing closer to Him.

2 Peter 3:18  But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

Colossians 1:9  ¶For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;

10  That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

11  Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Yes, it is possible to walk with God. Trust Christ Jesus as your Saviour then read God’s word and pray. Let God talk to you and you talk to God. After which the walk is living and doing all to please God, just like a good marriage.

2 Corinthians 5:9  Wherefore we labour, that, whether present or absent, we may be accepted of him.

The choice is still yours,
