“And Enoch lived sixty and five years, and begat Methuselah: And Enoch walked with God after he begat Methuselah three hundred years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.”
In the entire canon of Scripture, only two people are mentioned to have walked with God, Enoch and Noah. To walk with God meant to have a constant and familiar relationship with Him. These men had faith in God and are both mentioned in the Hall of Faith with a familiar verse in between.
“By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”
To walk with God is to have faith that pleases Him while coming to Him believing in Him while diligently seeking Him.
“And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years”
There are no coincidences within the Word of God. With the exception of leap years, our calendar year consists of 365 days. Enoch walked with God and lived 365 years. He serves as an example to us that we can walk with God every day.
“Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord. Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart.”
Endeavor to walk with God every day. Walk with Him by spending time in His Word and His presence. Delighting in Him today, and every day.
