Faithful Walking (Featured Daily Devotional)

Day 2


Faithful Walking

Genesis 5:22

And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters:

   It was a story that touched the world. David Vetter, the little boy with big brown eyes, lived his life inside plastic isolator bubbles to protect his body from germs. Tragically, a cure for his fatal immune disease never came, and David died after a bone marrow transplant one month after his twelfth birthday in 1984. Fighting bacteria is a lifelong ordeal for our human bodies. And for the Christian, living in a sin-infested world is also a lifelong ordeal.

   Even though the environment around us may be toxic, it is possible to faithfully walk with God. If you’re an ordinary person striving to possess extraordinary faith, consider the life of Enoch. He was an everyday kind of guy---not a prophet like Moses or a statesman like Daniel. He lived in a culture of such prevailing wickedness and rebellion that God ultimately judged the entire world with the Flood. But Enoch didn’t use the wickedness of his culture as an excuse for faithless living. He walked with God.

   Keep walking on the road where God has placed you at the time in history. And be and extraordinary person of faith---walking with God.

His is a joy which consequences cannot quench. Hi is a peace which circumstances cannot steal.
