Enoch was an amazing man! He walked with God 300 years.
If you walk with someone then you are together, next to each
Here we find a man walking with God 300 years. We don't read of
miracles he did, or his occupation, but only this amazing fact, that he walked with God
and pleased God.
When we walk with God we want to do great works for God, but we
read of none of that with Enoch. We always want to prove ourselves how we can work for God
and how He can use us. Somehow we want to be in the limelight. If we don't experience that
we get disheartened.
Seemingly he didn't look for great things, as we count greatness,
but simply to walk with God and please Him in whatever he did.
What does your life look like? Is that the most important thing in
your life to simply have unbroken fellowship with Him day by day, that there's perfect
harmony between Him and you?
If you have a relationship with someone you're watchful not to
disturb that relationship. You do what you do to please the next person, that your
relationship with that person becomes better.
The greatest thing for any human being is to live in close
fellowship with our Creator and not to disturb that relationship, always try to please
Him, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
He gave His all for you and me. And that's why He has become the
dearest person on earth to me. Whatever I do and say, my desire is that it will please
We read in Hebrews that Enoch had this testimony that he pleased
God. He not only walked with God but he pleased Him too.
We get upset if we cannot do something for God, but he was simply
satisfied to please God and walk with Him.
It is good that you stop for a moment and ask God what your life
is like? As a wife or husband do you walk with Him? Are you pleasing to Him? The way you
speak to your wife and children and parents is it pleasing to God? Are you walking with
God in whatever situation you find yourself?
Is this song seen in your life?
"He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and He talks with me
Along life's narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives:
He lives within my heart."
Jesus said He only did that which was pleasing to His Father. He
always did His Father's will.
When we do God's will, we can't make our own decisions, but we
have to listen to that voice of Him who gave His life for us. That we think as He does,
make decisions as He does. That our reactions always be such that people see Jesus in us.
When they asked Jesus to show them the Father, He replied that the
one who has seen Him has seen the Father also, for they are one (John 14:8-11).
God's word says that He will lead us into all the truth (John
So many people say they don't know what to do in different
situations, but it's because they don't listen. They must wash their spiritual ears, just
as you do with physical ears when they need a proper wash from time to time. Sometimes you
must even go to a doctor. So too if you don't hear the Lord's voice go to a spiritual
doctor, a man of God, to find the cause.
Do the people who come into contact with you see Jesus in you?
People don't read the Bible but they read our lives every day. What do they see in you?
When things are difficult and things go wrong do you walk with God
in the way you talk, and the way you answer? You might concentrate on something and then
people disturb you continually. How do you react and answer?
But Enoch walked with God, his actions and reactions were such as
pleasing God for he could hear what God said.
We can learn the commandments off by heart but do we know how to
Jesus said many will say in the Judgement day "Lord we did
many mighty works in your Name", but He would say to them that, "I know you not
for you did not do the will of My Father" (Matthew 7:21-23).
It's so important that we do the will of the Father.
That's why the pharisees could not understand Him. When they
brought the woman caught in adultery to Him and asked Him His verdict, He first kept quiet
and wrote on the ground. He communed with His Father what to answer them and so He
answered them,"the one without sin may cast the first stone" (John 8:4-7).
Do you see how important it is to always have an ear to hear what
the Spirit of the Lord says. Jesus came to fulfil the law, by always doing the will of the
Don't do anything in a rush. Ask God first. Wait upon the Lord.
