Willingness to Walk Alone with God

Look to Abraham … for I called him alone (Isaiah 51:2).

For he was, alone, when called I him (Rotherham).

Abraham was called the friend of God (James 2:23). This friendship with God called him to a place of being “alone;” for indeed God had called him “alone.” God called Abraham [then named Abram] to:

Get out of your country, and from your kindred, and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you (Genesis 12:1).

Man often has an affinity for groups, a longing to be “a part of something”; but being alone is the expected lot of those who would walk with God. We all naturally love and value the fellowship and companionship of others, but more often than not God calls His Own to walk on a solitary road with Him. Walking with Him requires a willingness to go alone if necessary. We must be willing to forgo the many voices of comfort and encouragement; of appreciation and respect. He calls us away from the noise of all of this into the quiet place of His love.

A Mighty Purifying Force

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

The hope of the Church which is His body is stated in Philippians 3:20-21,

For our citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ: who shall fashion anew the body of our humiliation, that it may be conformed to the body of his glory, according to the working whereby he is able even to subject all things unto himself.

Such as live in the pure atmosphere of this hope are least affected by the changing temperature of these present times. There is an evenness about them which speaks of heaven. There is no more potent influence for detaching the children of God from present things than prospects of glory with Christ. “Christ in you, the hope of glory,” is a mighty purifying force.
