I’ve been doing a lot of walking lately… walks with a friend, solitary strolls, birding walks, wildflower hikes, the-sky-is-blue-and-the-sun-is-shining walks. Sometimes I have a destination, but usually I’m just glad to be out enjoying nature.
God describes our life with Him as a walk. Over and over He tells us to walk in His ways. We are to walk in the light, not the darkness. We walk in the truth, not in falsehood. We walk humbly, not with pride. We are walk faithfully, obeying His commands. We walk in love.
As I was looking up “walk” to see just what God says about it, the verse that really caught my attention was Leviticus 26:12: “I will walk among you and be your God, and you will be my people.” [italics mine]
