“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Micah 5-7 and Hebrews 7.
It is spelled right out for us: how to live a Godly life.
Can we do it? Not on our own strength. That’s for sure!
How do I “walk humbly” with God? I see it as not making my presence too obvious. To be in the presence of God is to realize that I don’t belong there. In several instances (Isaiah and Peter) being in God presence overwhelmed them because of their own inadequacies.
Do I approach Him as if I do belong? He isn’t my buddy. He is my all-knowing Father. My two ears must be doing most of the interacting with Him. Not my mouth!
I must strive to stay with Him. I cannot be drifting in and out of a relationship with Him. I must be with Him every second.
Some days I find it easy to go it alone. The sun is shining. I’m feeling good and my relationships are in place. So out to the end of the limb I go because I am not walking with Him. Then something snaps, and I wonder what happened to me. What happened was that I wasn’t walking with Him. Even during the “good” times I MUST walk with Him in great humility.
“Lord, good stuff in today’s verse. Help me to get my walk right with You. I love You, Father. Prick my conscience when I am getting loose from You. I know better. Guide me, Father.”
Today’s verse offers great words of guidance. Will we act them out?
