Walking Before Him is a study manual written to Scripturally teach God’s people how to have a daily walk with Jesus. Oh, how truly this should be everyone’s desire, to have a real walk with God. There seems to be an evil that has found its way into the body of Christ’s thinking that is settling for so much less than we’ve been called to. It seems many times we take the path of least resistance. We’ve been taught we can only go so far. We’ve heard how we will never overcome sin or walk in any true deliverance, and we’ve been told to wait for the coming of the Lord (for pie in the sky, by and by). This is so unscriptural! God would have us to be as “trees of righteousness” (Isaiah 61:3). He desires us to be a remnant “walking in the name (character) of our God” (Micah 4:5-8). He would have us to see ourselves in the Spirit as He sees us, “men as trees walking” (Mark 8:24). He wants us “walking, leaping and praising God” (Acts 3:9). Oh, that we could be even as Enoch who “walked with God, and was not…” (Genesis 5:22-24).
Let us be delivered from religious thinking and embrace the Word of God and begin to “walk in truth” (II John 4), and to “walk in love” (Ephesians 5:1-3). Let us stop talking and really start walking (I John 2:6). God waits for a people to hear His voice and move in faith, laying aside the clothing and shackles of religion and to stop being lame, because they who are lame have testimonies of defeat. Let us rise and be those men as trees walking. Let us have a true walk with God. Let us demonstrate to the world the real Jesus. Can you hear Him calling you now saying, “arise and walk” (John 5:8)? Let us hear and respond. My prayer is that this manual encourages you to that end. May God bless you as you search the Scriptures. Let us obey His Word, “Rise, let us be going” (Matthew 26:46).
