During a recent book study, I came across the word walk and was intrigued by the many ways I should be walking in my Christian life. Any doubt or confusion as to how I should be walking is instantly cleared up by the commands of the Word of God.
This study came right around the time my 10-month-old daughter started learning to walk. Many were the bumps, tumbles, and falls, but one thing I noticed with her was that she eventually got back up and tried the whole “walking thing” again. What a great lesson for me. My walk with God is full of bumps, tumbles, and falls, but God doesn’t intend for me to stay there in defeat. No, I need to get back up and try it again. If I’m walking by sight and worrying my way through problem after problem, the answer is to stop walking by sight and start walking by faith.
We all face our own unique challenges and situations, but the solution is always the same: am I walking according to the truth of the Word of God? As you take the time to read through these verses, may they challenge, encourage, and motivate you to a closer walk with God.
