A Walker’s Creed

God came walking through the garden in the cool of the day and spoke to his first listeners. I will walk, because he first walked, and I will listen for his voice.

Enoch walked faithfully with God, until God whisked him away. I will walk away from death and into the whirlwind of God.

Noah walked faithfully with God, and God had him build a very big boat. If God asks me to build something that’s never been built before, I will do it.

Abram walked the length and breadth of the land of promise and was granted a home there. I will walk in the direction of my heavenly home.

Pharaoh’s daughter walked along the riverbank and fished out a very special child in a basket. I will be alert for hidden gifts as I walk.

The one who is blessed does not walk with the wicked, even when entering the valley of the shadow. I will steer clear of evil companions.

If I walk blamelessly, the Lord promises he will be my shield.  I will seek to be blameless.

Isaiah saw that those walking in darkness would see a great light. I will walk in the light.

He saw a highway of holiness. I will find this road and stay upon it.

Those who wait upon the Lord walk and never faint. I will keep going and never quit.

There was a fourth man walking through the fire. If I must walk through fire, I will not be afraid.

Jesus walked by the sea and found disciples. I will be one of those who leaves all to follow him.

He walked upon the sea. I will go to him when he bids me to walk upon the water.

Two disciples suddenly encountered the risen Lord as they walked the road. I will journey and break bread with him and allow him to teach me all about himself from the Scriptures.

This is what the Lord says:

“Stand at the crossroads and look;
ask for the ancient paths,
ask where the good way is, and walk in it,
and you will find rest for your souls. (Jer. 6:16)

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)

And walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. (Eph. 5:2)

 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7)
