What did that all of these have in common? The will to walk, and the understanding that walking is one of the healthiest, easiest, and most practical forms of exercise. It is true that many people know the value of walking and yet never make it happen. They set themselves up for heartache in the future because they neglect to move things out of the way for physical exercise.
But it is even sadder when we neglect the most fundamental of all spiritual exercises — walking with God.
There was a man long ago who also had a huge commitment to walk with the Lord. His name was Enoch. One day his walk with God just never ended, and it appears that he walked right into heaven. Wow! Today, the mere mention of his name brings the whole subject of the spiritual walk to our minds.
May God help us make it a serious matter to analyze our own devotion to walking with Him. Maybe the Coronavirus measures in our various countries have messed up our schedules and shaken up our regular creature comforts. Of course that can be irritating. But in many cases it might have afforded a bit of extra time to walk with God. Or maybe not. Maybe we just have to find a quiet balcony, or a hallway, or a tiny yard, and simply decide it’s going to happen.
Walking by faith doesn’t take place by accident or coincidence.
It is a decision.
