This is what we need to do

“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?
