Throughout the Bible “walking with God” is used as a picture of our relationship. Not sprinting. Not collapsed in a heap. Walking. Noah “walked with God”, as did Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. In Micah 6:8 all Israel is invited to “walk humbly with your God” and in the New Testament Paul tells us to walk “in Christ” (Colossians 2:6,7; Ephesians 4:1) and to “keep in step with the
Spirit” (Galatians 5:25). How astonishing to think that the triune God wants to walk with us. In Christ and by the Spirit we journey with the living God, our constant companion along the road.
How often are we tempted to sprint or simply give up? How often do we feel alone on the journey? The words of the song are true: “When you walk through the storm, hold your head up high, and don’t be afraid of the dark… For you’ll never walk alone.”
PRAY that 2016 would be a year of walking with God.
