LIVING IN HIS PRESENCE 24/7
BIBLE NUGGETS 0131/2010 [Gen 5:21-24, Heb 11:5 KJV]
We can walk closer with God no matter our present spiritual level or past experiences. We do this by regular prayer, meditation and study of the word of God. Enoch was an example of a man who was in constant fellowship with God. He enjoyed being in his presence [Gen 5:21-24, Heb 11:5]. He lived for 365 years when life spans were nearly a millennium [900 years+], but God so much enjoyed fellowship with him that God took him [Enoch did not experience physical death]. His life was comparatively brief on earth but relevant. It is on bible record that his son, Methuselah is the oldest man that ever lived only dying in the decade of Noah’s flood by bible chronology. Enoch’s walk in divine footsteps was a heroic spiritual experience when it was “old-fashioned” and sin pervaded the land in those days. He is mentioned in New Testament scriptures in the “Hall of Faith” of men who lived outstanding lives and pleased God. Let’s walk closer with God as Enoch did and God will reveal more of himself to us.
Gen 5: 21-24 21And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: 22And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: 23And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: 24And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.
Heb 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Prayer of Faith
Oh Lord I long for more of you. Fill my in the inside with thoughts of godliness every moment and let my life radiate your glory and power. Satisfy the yearning of my soul for your righteousness and make me relevant spiritually to the world around me in Jesus Name. Amen.
