Hebrews 11:5 says”By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death, and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was commended as having pleased God.
Can you imagine being that close to God that God saw to it that you never saw death? That He would take you just like He took Enoch, WOW! That is just so amazing, every time I read about people who actually walked with God that sends chills up and down my spine.
There were others who walked with God like that in the bible, Adam and Eve, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. So often when we read about the different people in the bible some we can relate to and others we wish we could be that close to God.
Well today my friends I want you to know that you and I can be just as close to God as they were, the question becomes how hungry and thirsty are you for God? When we become hungry and thirsty for Him we too will walk in the garden with the Lord every day.
It requires something on our part, we just can’t say well now that I am born again it’s up to Jesus to draw close to me, know that is not how it works. We must decrease in every area of our lives while He increases the more in our lives.
As you are reading this post your probably not sure what to make out of it. Maybe you have questions about God all together? I want to leave you with this thought. Jesus loves you and He died for you. He won’t ever force Himself on you. He won’t force you to read His word, nor will He force you to love Him. You must want to do those things yourself because you Love Him. I hope that something in this devotion spark on the inside of you that you will begin to set aside a few minutes in the morning or evening to read your bible.
Maybe you find excuses when it comes to reading the bible, let me give you a few suggestions, instead of reading a magazine or reaching for your cell phone to catch up on social media during your lunch time. Search the phone and read the bible while you’re having your lunch. Instead of watching those reality shows how about turning the television off and turn on some praise and worship. While cleaning the dinner dishes how about praying while your cleaning the table and putting the dishes in the dishwasher.
How hungry are you for Him today? Have a blessed Saturday.
