By Faith We Walk With God (3)

Galatians 5:16-26, Amos 3:3

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed?"

How can we walk with God?

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.
