How to Walk

26 Jun

Gen. 17:1 The Lord expressed how Abram was to walk, and although he wasn’t perfect in his walk, he was blameless.

“Now when Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am God Almighty; Walk before Me, and be blameless.
“I will establish My covenant between Me and you, And I will multiply you exceedingly.”
Abram fell on his face…” Genesis 17:1~3a

 Abraham was faithful in his walk, learning obedience through the things he suffered. Ismael, lies, and whatever else did not deter him. He kept his focus upon who was leading him, and is an example and encouragement to those of us who walk in the spirit of Isaac, as sons of Abraham.
 Our walk is indeed like Abraham’s, we are to allow the Lord to be exactly what He is…Our Lord. Not by our human thinking or strength, but in and through His very presence. This is the intent of His grace. This is what Paul was referring to when he stated; “But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.” I Cor.15:10

    “…and be blameless.” At face value, this seems to put the burden of obedience on us, but you’ve expounded on this so well! I never saw it this light before but it sure rings truth in me, Jim.

      Blessings Paul!

      Abraham is noted in scripture as you well understand as our father in the Faith. This precious Faith is not of our ability, or nature. It is like all other Heavenly blessings a gift from above. We today walk not my sight, or or vision, or even our interpretation of scripture (Proverbs 3:5~8). All of what we are becoming in our Lord is from and through Him. So in this light we can see that in our walk before God, we respond to His precious Love by opening our hearts to Him, and allowing His Living Word to become our source of Life.

      Thank you for leaving your comments Paul.
