“It was by faith that Enoch was taken up to heaven without dying—“he disappeared, because God took him.” For before he was taken up, he was known as a person who PLEASED God.” Hebrews 11:5
A heart that stays hungry for God will never fail to miss out a chance, a moment, or a way to walk with God.
Recently the discussion at home was about Enoch. I used to always think it was extremely so easy for Enoch to walk with God. For a human being to walk with God is a matter of determination, deep hunger and uncompromising love. God definitely gives you the grace, but it takes us to sharpen that grace to faith, in wanting more of Him.
The peak of unrighteousness that flaunted during his time was so high. To have anyone out of that ruckus into yielding to God, was out of question. Enoch had a family to take care of, provide for. He didn’t have friends or Co-workers that thought highly of God. He had neighbors who welcomed sin like they would welcome a great personality.
None of these had valid excuses for Enoch not wanting God. “And [in reverent fear and obedience] Enoch walked with God; and he was not [found among men], because God took him [away to be home with Him].” GENESIS 5:24.
Let us not be found among men of this world with their pleasures, and likes; but in the midst of His Presence, where we seek His heart. Jesus followed the same path and did this only for us to have access to God anytime and anywhere. He was separated from the Father due the wrath God had on our sins; just so that we will have an unending craving to walk with Him.
