A God Who Answers | Part Fifteen.


We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel, as we continue to dig deeper into verse 13 of Chapter 10. It reads,

"But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia."
Through my contentions in life, I have sought a place of rest in my relationship (walk) with God. Someone recently posted on social media, "Walk with God is talking to God." Really? I was wondering what part of scripture correlates with that. 

"Enoch walked with God." [Genesis 5:24] Did that mean Enoch talked with God? How? What was he telling God about? Is it the same as we do in our multiplicity of supposed prayer meetings? Why has God not taken us? Why are His power and person not more evidence in our midst?

I think Enoch did more than talk with God. He, more than talking to God, listened to God. That is the challenge with half-baked gospel and Christians. They are a danger not only to themselves but to others just as well. They have zeal without knowledge.

Apollos was like that. He was zealous and well-spoken. He had charisma and drew a crowd, but the but in his life was evident to the mature. "When Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the way of God more accurately."  [Acts 16:24-28]

May God bless the church with more "Apollos," with a teachable heart and disposition. May God bless us with "Aquila and Priscilla," with discernment and maturity to approach, receive, and nurture the next generation. Then, we will rid ourselves of the title and position-hungry bunch running to their own destruction.

The Saint.
