Be born again and walk in the Spirit: "Can two walk together, except
they be agreed?" (Amos 3:3). To have spiritual walk and personal walk
of faith with God, we must be born again (John 6:63; Eph 2:1). A
spiritually dead person cannot know God, nor hear His Word, nor walk
with Him. God is holy. To walk with God, we must be partakers of His
divine nature, and "walk in the Spirit" (Gal 5:16, 25). God provided
the precious blood of our Lord so that we may maintain our walk and
fellowship with Him in His light (1 John 1:7).
Read God's Word with trust and submission: Jesus says, "My sheep hear
my voice, and I know them, and they follow me" (John 10:27). To walk
with God is to walk in His Word, His Truth and His Way. Sheep will
follow their shepherd, but not strangers. The more we read God's Word
with a prayerful, trusting, humble and submissive heart, the more we
know the Lord and His voice, and the closer we walk after Him.
Practise walking in God's holy presence: Although we cannot see God
with our physical eyes, God always sees us (not only our deeds but also
our hearts and minds) as God is all-knowing and everywhere;
"whither shall I flee from thy presence?" (Ps 139:7). Let us practise
living in God's holy presence wherever we are in order to fear Him,
trust in Him and enjoy His peace, joy and protection. "I have set the
LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be
moved" (Ps 16:8).
Walk with God by faith step by step: We do not know the next step, but
we can trust in our loving, faithful, almighty and sovereign God and
just walk with Him and after Him by faith one step at a time, "walk by
faith, not by sight" (2 Cor 5:7; cf John 10:4).
THOUGHT: I must walk with God by faith in Him and His Word.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to hear Thy voice and walk after Thee.
