Genesis 5:22 22 After he became the father of Methuselah, Enoch walked faithfully with God 300 years and had other sons and daughters. (NIV)

 When you leave this earth, how do you want people to remember you?  I want them to remember me as someone who walked with God.  Enoch walked with God.  What does it mean to walk with God?  To walk with God we must completely trust Him, communicate with Him and obey Him. Proverbs 3:5-6  says, “5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight (NIV)”.  If we do this consistently we are walking with God.  It takes patience to learn to walk with God.  It takes scripture study and meditation to learn to walk with God.  But mostly it takes complete trust in what God says to us.  Abraham trusted God enough to obey and offer his long-promised son as a sacrifice.  He knew God would give him more descendants than he could count.  I used to be like Abraham’s wife, Sarah.  I would pray for things and then I would see to it my prayers were answered in my way.  This isn’t trust.  We must trust and follow what God says.  Our biggest question is do we love God enough to want to walk with Him at all cost and through any circumstance?  Each one of us must decided that for ourselves.  What do you choose?
