Epic Challenge Day 28
A walk with God is continual. It is a daily necessity.
One of my favorite passages to think on in scripture is in Genesis 5:22-24, it speaks of a man by the name of Enoch who knew God so well, that God just took him. The word that Moses uses to describe their relationship is "walked" "Enoch walked with God" this implies a growing continual relationship. They were so close that as reached maturity in age, God just took Him. I used to think that it was right before Enoch died. But before the Flood, Enoch had a son named Methuselah. Methuselah was the oldest man to ever live, so he must have had good genes.
Enoch walked with God and God took him, the story goes. But Enoch was not old for their day, he was just 365 years old when he went with God. A young age when considering that of his contemporaries. God and Enoch must have had such a close relationship that God could no longer live without Enoch.
So this makes me ask? If God can have that close a relationship with man, how much closer can we get to God? We began this challenge 28 days ago, but it never really ends. It continues daily as we learn to walk with God.
Matthew 5:33 suggests a way of growth in our walk with God.
Today make your prayer a request for God to draw you to Himself. That we can be so close to God that he will take us.
