The Impact of a Walk With God


"Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you."  (Zechariah 8:23)

Man cannot resist truth for a long time - truth in life particularly.  When a Christian proves the truth in his life, his life becomes a loud-speaking Bible.  People will say, 'Here is a man living the life I have failed.  Let me follow him.'  As we live the life which is made possible thorough the death and resurrection of Jesus, it will make people marvel.  People cannot resist the force of your life.  'We will go with you to Jerusalem', they will say.  Jerusalem is the place of prayer.  It is the sanctuary.  It is at the place of prayer you can meet God.  Have you got a set time for prayer?  Do you know that prayer will transform your life?  "And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: ..." (Zechariah 8:21).  Prayer is always a journey towards God.  For sick people it is like the journey made by the woman ailing for twelve years, as she walked and elbowed her way through the crowd.  Her walking was prayer, her elbowing her way through the crowd was prayer, her touching Jesus was prayer.  In prayer you come into a live-touch with God.  You cannot find anywhere else, the joy and the revelation that you have in prayer.  Your life will become exemplary.  When young people live the life of victory, people will turn towards God.  Do you mean business in prayer?  Do you seek God in prayer?  God will make us powerful examples to others.  Can one get his youth back again when he can be an example?  Sermons may be forgotten, but the fact of a life cannot be forgotten.
