Deuteronomy 19:9because you carefully follow all these laws I command you today—to love the LORD your God and to walk always in obedience to him—then you are to set aside three more cities.
When do you feel closest to God? I begin each day in prayer, listening for what He will place on my heart. How it’s possible for human beings of flesh and blood to walk in the ways of God, who is all-powerful and above time and space. The answer is to walk in God’s ways means to be like God, not in the physical sense, which is impossible, but to emulate God’s attributes. So what does that mean? Just as He is called merciful and gracious, you be merciful and gracious. Just as He clothed Adam, you clothe the naked. Just as He visited Abraham when he was sick, you visit the sick. Jesus mentions these same attributes when talking about those who will find favor in God’s kingdom: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me” (Matthew 25:35-36). This is what it means to walk in God’s ways, so pray daily for help and guidance. Learn to know what is pleasing and good in God’s eyes.
