DAY 4 JOY – Walk Humbly With Your God
Prayerfully read Colossians 2.
The most important thing in this Hour is to walk humbly with your God.
“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him.” (Colossians 2:6)
In the original Greek, the phrase “to live in” means to walk in union with, to regulate your lives and conduct yourselves in union with and in conformity to Him. The Amplified version expresses “to live in” as reflecting His character in the things you do and say—living lives that lead others away from sin.
How do we live in Him? How do we increase our capacity for Him? We must gaze extensively on His Word daily and simply enjoy His Presence in silence and solitude (all throughout the day!) Hebrews 11:6 promises that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
In Psalm 27:4-5, 8, 13-14 David sings, “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in his temple. For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; He will hide me in the shelter of His sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. My heart says of you, ‘Seek His face!’ Your face, Lord, I will seek. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” When you take delight in His Presence, you experience a foretaste of eternal pleasures.
And in Psalm 16:8, 11 David expresses his heart, “I have set the Lord continually before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.”
Allow an awareness of His Presence to become imprinted on your conscience. Ask the Lord to be vibrantly involved in your day, in your work, and in your life because the Truth is that it is “in Him that we live and move and have our being.” (Acts 17:28)
