I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. Genesis 17:1.
It’s one thing to walk with God and another thing to maintain a consistent and perfect walk with Him, so that His glory, power and mighty presence can be manifested in our lives.
What Jesus showed the multitude is different from what He showed His followers, what He showed His followers is different from what He showed His disciples, what He showed the disciples is different from what He showed the twelve apostles, what He showed the twelve apostles is different from what He showed the three, Peter, James and John.
These three apostle enjoyed a great fellowship with Jesus Christ, though they were fast asleep when the master was about to be betrayed and crucified, but these three were the only apostle that saw the transfiguration of Jesus Christ at the mountain.
Seeing the master being transfigured in their eyes was a great sign of their total commitment, dedication and a sacrificial walk with Him.
Abraham, Moses and David and Daniel, among many were also diligent and consistent in their walk with God. They experienced God and enjoy a good walk with Him. The bible recorded that there was no prophet in Israel that God knew face to face except Moses.
Abraham also walked with God and it was revealed in the scripture that the Lord appeared to him, visited him and also ate in Abraham’s house. How did that happen?
David enjoyed a cordial relationship with God and God chose Him to be one of the greatest king in Israel. He was just a shepherd boy just taking care of his father’s business in the bush, but God’s mercy located him and he conformed to the will of God.
All these great happenings were greatly influenced by the perfect walk these great men all had with God and conforming to His will.
Daniel was not left out, he walked with God and he saw the regime of four Kings in Babylon. He was the wisest during those period and the most preferred because an excellent spirit was in him. Beloveth, you can’t walk with God and not be wise because there is a spirit in man and the inspiration of the almighty that gives him understanding.
Let’s journey into the dimensions of walking with God. I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, will give unto us the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him that the eyes of our understanding will be enlightened in Jesus name, Amen.
1. Walk in the light of His Word
Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” John 8:12.
There’s an hymn that writes:
When we walk with the Lord
In the light of His Word
What a glory He sheds on our way;
While we do His good will
He abides with us still
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
God dwells in light, He hides himself in light, everything about Him is light and in Him there’s no darkness at all. The first thing you need to walk perfectly with God after you have been born again is the word of life.
The word of God is spirit, the word of God is light, the word of God is life. Jesus said to us, the word that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.
If you walk in the light of the word of God, you will never walk in darkness. Even in daytime, when others are stumbling, you will be shining in the light of the word.
God’s word has been designed to help every child of God to reign as Kings and Queens in life. Inability to recognized the light in the word of God will keep one in thick darkness, no matter how long he has been born again.
Not everyone will hear the audible voice of God but every child of God who is genuinely saved is entitled to hear the voice of God clearly, though it might not be audibly, but aligning yourself to the word of God will make you recognize His voice when He speaks.
The primary way God will speak, lead and guide you in the affairs of life is through His word. As a matter of fact, if you’re not conversant with His word, or you’re not a practical doer of the word and also walking in the light of His word, it will be tough to discern His voice which will make it more difficult to have a perfect walk with Him.
Our Lord Jesus Christ have the understanding of the scripture right from a very tender age, so it was easy for Him to walk and maintain a perfect walk the father.
He knows what to do at any time, when to do it, how to do it and where to do it. He was never short of power, wisdom or revelation.
Everything worked for Him according as planned because He was carrying the word of God in His spirit everywhere he goes.
Maybe your bible has been on holiday for a while now, or maybe is on vacation, it’s time to pick it up again and conform yourself to the written word. Make it a priority to study and meditate on the word of God if you want to walk perfectly with God.
Take advantage of the bible reading exercise that’s ongoing right now on our social media forum, or you construct your own time table so you can align yourself to the plan and purpose that God has for your life.
Anyone who wants to enjoy a good walk with God must be a practical doer of His Word. God cannot walk with or be a friend of anyone who is not doing His will. The best He can do with such a fellow is to call his attention to repentance and send someone to Him who will prepare Him for rapture or eternity.
You must let the Word of God shines through you, when the word of God penetrate through your body, soul and spirit, you don’t need to invite God again to walk with you, He’s already inside of you, and you can walk with Him as long you preserve His Word in your spirit and keep doing what it says.
Today, make a fresh commitment to start walking in the light of His Word. Be a practical doer of His word. May the God of grace grant you fresh grace to walk in the light and revelation of His word in Jesus name. May His light shines brighter and brighter in all your path as you commit yourself to have a new perfect walk with Him in Jesus name.
2. Walking in Spirit
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. Romans 8:14.
Many people followed Jesus but only few walked with Him intimately. Spirit have fellowship with spirit, flesh with flesh, mortal with mortal and then immortals with immortals.
The only way the mortals can have fellowship with the immortals is through the spirit. Walking with God will require your spirit to align with His spirit because many things will never be revealed except by the Spirit.
Flesh can only have contact with flesh while spirit can only have contact with spirit. If you want to contact God, you can only contact Him through your spirit because God is a spirit. The flesh cannot contact Him and cannot have communion with Him.
To walk in the spirit, every of your action and deeds must be motivated by the spirit and not the flesh. The flesh must be subdued and be under subjection. You must not Allow the flesh to fulfill its lust and have its way. To be spiritually minded is life and that life can be found when walking in the spirit and it will be activated by power of the Holy Ghost.
If you want your spirit to be aligned with the spirit of God in order to have good walk with Him, you must never allow your spirit to be defiled, your spirit must not be contaminated with unholy thing that are not profitable to your Spirit. You must stay clean and stay unspotted from the world.
Don’t ever take a step without allowing the Holy Spirit to direct you. Let Him be the one to guide you. Anyone who is not allowing the Holy spirit to lead and guide him will always fall into disaster.
One thing you must also know is that you must not quench the spirit with carnal junks, because a quenched spirit cannot stay alive to maintain a perfect walk with God. The carnal nature of man cannot comprehend the vastness of God. Spirit to spirit is needed for a fruitful and productive fellowship and a perfect walk with God.
3. Walk in His Love
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. I John 4:8.
Love is faith’s empowering agent. When we do not have mountain-moving love it is impossible to have mountain-moving faith.
God is love, and anyone who wants to have a perfect walk with God must exhibit that same kind of character.
Anyone who cannot love like God or have the God kind nature of love cannot perfectly walk with God. You must be able to see people in the way you know God will see them. Love people in the way you know God will love them, care for them in the way you know God will care for them.
God cannot be seen but people can be seen, you can see people through the eyes of God with the way you show your love to them. The only way to prove that the fruits of love is bearing much in you and that you love God, is to love people the way you know God will love them.
Anyone who cannot love his brethren cannot love God because if you cannot love someone you can see, how can you love God that you can’t see.
God is love and to enjoy our walk with God, we must walk in love with all men.
For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1:17.
A perfect walk with God is not complete until faith is involved. Everything in the kingdom of God is driven by faith, no child of God can please Him. Faith is only thing you have that can make you please God.
Our lives have been designed in such a way that without faith we cannot get anything done. If you must walk with God, you must believe everything He says and do everything He commands without doubting or wavering in your heart or in action. He that doubts cannot always please God.
Walking with God by faith is the only substance we have for pleasing Him, without faith we can’t walk perfectly with God and also please Him. In fact, our walk with God is not perfect, neither is it completed without applying a good measure of faith.
Everything pertaining to the kingdom have been designed to work by faith and if we don’t subscribe to Gods faith channel, we might never walk with God in perfection.
The secret of faith is not having faith in your faith, the secret of faith is having faith toward God, and toward God alone, then you begin to walk perfectly with Him experientially.
Beloveth, here are some key dimensions of walking with God, use it, apply it and maintain it consistently. Happy are ye if you know these things and do them.
