Get your boots on! We are off for a walk. It will take effort but you will see and hear things
to delight you on the way. The birds singing, squirrels scurrying and the trees whispering to one another. It will make you feel alive and your heart vibrate with life!
I love walking. I feel close to God when I walk. I have been learning, however, that he enjoys walking with me also. In fact He has called me out of bed recently to go on a walk because His heart is to spend time with me. I have been shocked some mornings by His excitement.
Ex 17:1 The whole Israelite community set out from the Desert of Sin, travelling (walking) from
place to place as the Lord commanded.
Nehemiah 9:12 By day you led them with a pillar of cloud, and by night with a pillar of fire to give them light on the way they were to take.
Micah 6:8 He has shown you, what is good. To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
One of the first things we see God doing with mankind in Genesis is walk and talk with them. He would spend time with Adam and Eve wandering around the garden. How does a spirit God walk? Has he special legs? Anyway, it seems that He still likes walking with us. He likes to wander with us through the paths of life keeping a conversation of intimacy open. He does not ask us to journey or adventure alone – He is with us all the way. He is in not rush to be anywhere – he is just enjoying your company.
He will even walk with you (escort you) for a good night out. Perhaps a feast in a great hall. He just wants to be with you – because he loves you.
He escorts me to the banquet hall;
it’s obvious how much he loves me. Song of Songs 2:4
Today: Perhaps go on a physical walk with the knowledge that God walks with you. Or sit down with God. Make an effort not to pray but just enjoy his company.
