Genesis 5:23-24 (New American Standard)
So all the days of Enoch were three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters. And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.

Enoch was a man who walked with God. "Walking with God" simply means "living in the presence of God". In order to walk with God, live in His presence, and maintain a life such as Enoch did, we must be sure that our life is regulated by God's will and that we are devoted to God's purpose and plan.

Many people want to walk with God, but they want to walk according to their own terms, their own way. Have you seen or know someone like that? Have you every ran across someone who wanted to live for Jesus and walk with God, but wanted to do it his/her own way? No, we must walk with God according to His purpose and plan, according to God's will.

Living this kind of life requires entire self-surrender. The name "Enoch" means dedicated and carries the action of yielded to God, to be conformed to God's mind and God's will. And in the New Testament, Romans 12:2 (New American Standard) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Many people's lives would be changed if they would simply renew thir minds and change thier thinking process. You can't take the junk in without it affecting you. It is through the eye-gate and the ear-gate that the devil can and will bring tempting thoughts to your mind. You must renew your mind. If your going to surrender to God, it's all or nothing. God calls for for all of your spirit, soul, and body.
He calls for entire dedication.

We must get this straight in our minds right now: There is only one way to do things. It's not your momma's way, it's not your daddy's way, and it's not someone elses way. It's God's way, and that's the only way.

If we are going to walk with God properly, we must surrender our entire selves to God. It's not our way or that way, it's not a church's way, it's not whoever preaches it this way or that way, It's God's way, and we find God's way by renewing our minds with the Word of God.

Are you willing to walk with God like Enoch did? Are you willing to surrender your entire self? Are you willing to give everything to Him and say, alright God, I don't want my way or someelse's way, but I want Your way and Your way only, I surrender myself to you!

The great thing about walking with God isthat at the end of each day, you will have an intense satisfaction. You can say, God, I lived for You today in every way I knew how. If I didn't please You it wasn't because I wasn't trying. If I did displease You this day, show me and I will change. Please help me to change to Your way, in the name of Jesus, Amen, Amen, and Amen....
