Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue” (2 Peter 1:3).

Through his persevering walk with God, Enoch learned to know Him better and better, and therefore he became more and more stable in his walk. Enoch walked with God everywhere. The Lord was with him in the fields. The Lord was with him in his house. When he visited someone, the Lord was beside him. The more perseveringly we walk with the Lord, the more we will come to know Him, and through this we are able to walk with God even more closely. Enoch had never seen God, and yet he clung to Him as though he saw Him. One day it was as though a hand suddenly stretched out to him from heaven and a voice said, “Come, Enoch, the time has come….” Then he was with the Lord and saw with unspeakable joy the One with whom he had walked. The Bible simply says, “…and was not found, because God had translated him” (“taken him away,” NIV) (Hebrews 11:5). This sentence shows that apparently a search was made for Enoch, but Enoch had disappeared.  How was Enoch’s rapture possible? Genesis 5:24 tells us, “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.” For three hundred and sixty-five years, he lived a life of holiness, in love and in prayer. His life was a testimony.
