How To Walk With God October 07, 2015 (1.3.1)
Written by Larry M. Jaynes:
Jesus, when speaking to his disciples in the Gospel of Matthew encouraged them (as well as us) to think heavenly thoughts, for when believers have heavenly thoughts, they will begin realizing how much they walk with our God.
Matthew 6:19 - Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
“Moth and rust” means doubts and worries, and the “thieves” represent fears. In the culture that Jesus lived in they were always consciously aware of what they would think about and what they would allow into their minds. “Treasures” mean thoughts. Jesus was laying the foundation for not only how to walk with God, but also how to recognize God Who walks with us.
Matthew 6:20 - But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Jesus was instructing his disciples to think the Word of God, to hold in their minds the words of life that are (according to Jesus) heavenly treasures. These heavenly treasures will assuredly cast out doubts, worries, and fears, and replace them with confidence and believing trust in our God.
Matthew 6:21 - For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
When we are thinking about God and His wonderful Word, our hearts will be right-on with God’s thoughts, His treasures. Nobody walks around continuously thinking about God and His Word (for we are not perfect); however, we can at least have precious moments of serenity throughout the day that can help us to remember God and His many promises to us.
Philippians expresses further dynamic truths that can help us discover God in our hearts. His Word shows us many wonderful things that are all around us which are godly and are thought-worthy and spiritually inspirational.
When Christians place heavenly thoughts in their minds, they will have the assurance that the God of peace shall absolutely be with them; this is how to walk with God. So enjoy this day knowing (thinking) that as you indeed walk with God, you will be walking with “the God of peace.”
We thank you for your support and prayers.
God Bless You!
