3 Steps to Walk Closer with God

This short passage outlines 3 steps to walk closer to God. It has been such a blessing me and I would like these truths to dramatically change your life right now.
 
Psalm 119:98-100 (NIV)

98 Your commands are always with me
    and make me wiser than my enemies.
99 I have more insight than all my teachers,
    for I meditate on your statutes.
100 I have more understanding than the elders,
    for I obey your precepts.

1. Know 

Knowing is the first step. We think we know God’s word we really don’t. Not just the New Testament but the Old Testament too. It is a double-edged sword. All the Bible was given for our teaching and learning.

Join a Bible study group. Have a daily devotional time. Know the word.

2. Meditate 

Immerse yourselves in the Word, in His commands. That’s the second step. Not just knowing, but really digesting it. Thinking about it the whole day. Digesting each precious word of God over and over again till all juices are squeezed out. The Bible is like a gold mine. The more you dig, the harder it becomes, but the more gold you get out of it.

Ask God to bring His word to your mind throughout the day. While you’re studying, working, exercising. You’d be surprised.

3. Obey

Lastly, Knowing and Meditating must lead to Obedience. Your life must be changed. It must be cleansed by the Word of God. Transformed by the Holy Spirit.  As James said, if we look at the mirror and walk away unchanged, it’s useless. We have to look at the mirror (God’s commands) and reflect on our dirtiness that needs to be addressed immediately.

Ask God to give you His strength to obey His commands today and everyday. It will draw you closer to God. God bless you!
