[CF Devotionals] 2009-03-20 - Enoch and Noah

Genesis 5:24a (MSG) - Enoch walked steadily with God.

Genesis 6:8-9 (MSG) - But Noah was different. God liked what he saw in Noah. This is the story of Noah: Noah was a good man, a man of integrity in his community. Noah walked with God.

Those are some pretty incredible words about these 2 men.

Enoch walked steadily with God. I know personally my walk could be a lot steadier and consistent with God. I get too busy to pray and too busy to read my Bible. It's silly how I can be to busy in my life to spend time with the one who makes life possible.

The world was evil. But Noah was different. The world we live in is a dark place. We need to be different. I need to be different. We are to be lights piercing through the darkness.

God liked what he saw in Noah. None of us are perfect but when God looked at Noah he was pleased. I need to live my life in a way that pleases him. I fail to do that at times.

Lastly, Noah was a good man, a man of integrity. He was the same no matter who he was around. Like Enoch, Noah walked with God.

I can't say my life is always different from the lives of those around me. I can't say that God would be pleased with my life all the time, in fact almost never I'd say. It's because I don't walk steadily with God like Enoch and Noah did. What about you? How is your walk? Is your life different? Is God pleased with your life? Do you walk with God? Get down on your knees right now and walk with him. Whether you are starting your day or wrapping it up take the time to walk with God.
