MEN - Aim Higher

Enoch walked with God. The bible does not say much about his lifestyle. What was it he did, that qualifies him as someone who walked with God? Could it be that the extra spring to his walk with God was his knowledge of God’s character and God’s reward system?

Hebrews 11:5-6 (NKJV)
By faith, Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Emphasis Mine

If you have not begun walking with the Father, consider starting today. However, if your testimony is that of one who walks with the Father, you can make your relationship with Him abound more and more. Set aside time to study and understand the character of the Father over time and the Father’s reward system.  These two aspects are guaranteed to add the extra spring to your steps as you walk with Him.

-It is godly to expect a reward as a result of walking with Him. It will be unfair to make His reward the only reason why you walk with Him. Amen.
-Genesis 8:22 talks about the aspect of seedtime and harvest; a scripture that communicates to us both the character of our Father (as in being faithful) and His reward system. It will be a mockery to His character as a faithful Father, to sow and not expect harvest because he has told us in Galatians 6:7 that He is not mocked and that we will reap that which we sow. And it will also be a mockery of His character to not and expect to reap.

Here is the encouragement. Enoch walked with God and he was no more because God took him. You are still here, make a quality decision by choosing to walk with the Father and by all means, boost your walk with Him and aim higher in your walk with Him by understanding His character over time and His reward system. By so doing, you are relating with knowledge and wisdom. Amen.
