IT’S OUR MONTH OF DIRECTION.
WALKING WITH THE SPIRIT ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him (Genesis 5:24).
Hebrews 11:5 further enlightens us on how Enoch walked with God; it was by faith: “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.” Hebrews 11:6 states that without faith, it’s impossible to please God. Religious Christianity teaches that you have to struggle to please God, and to walk with Him. However, the reality is that you don’t have to struggle to please God, because the Holy Spirit helps you live the faith life that pleases Him.
When people struggle and still don’t seem to make meaningful progress in life you can tell they don’t have much fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Real fellowship with the Holy Spirit makes a difference. He’ll make you wise. He’ll produce extraordinary results through you; you’ll have an excellently fulfilled life. I’m absolutely fulfilled in Him. My life has only been in one direction—upwards and forward—for one simple reason: walking with the Holy Spirit.
We read that Enoch walked with God, and he was translated that he should not see death. Death isn’t just the cessation of biological life; it represents poverty, defeat, sickness, failure or destruction that work in men’s lives: the death that works in their minds, visions and dreams! All of that will have no power over you because you’ve been translated above “death”—in your job, finances, education, family and ministry.
When Christ came into your life, you were translated from the dominion of darkness into the Kingdom of God’s dear Son (Colosians 1:13); that’s where you are now! Walk with the Spirit and enjoy your glorious life in Him.
