Walking With God: Know the 7’Cs of How to Walk with God

Genesis 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. (KJV)

Walking with God is truly a wonderful experience. Enoch walked with God and God took him. Abraham attracted God’s attention and became his friend because he walked with God. Common men came to be friends with the Almighty. That was fantastic. Nevertheless, it will not be sufficient to just know that they walked with God, but to know how they did so. 

Walking with God is worthy of being a goal for any Christian who wishes to grow.

The book of Amos revealed a simple and unequivocal truth that has proven to be true for every undertaking involving two or more people.

"Can two walk together, except they be agreed ?" Amos 3:3 (KJV)

In this study, I’ll explain what it means to walk with God, why it’s absolutely essential for everyone who bears the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to do so, and how to walk with God.

What does “walking with God” mean?

Walking with God entails doing things that are in accordance with God’s word, will, or plan. It means moving in the same direction as God, to the same destination, and at the same speed.

Walking together literally involved more than one person, and for the act of walking together to be possible, they must first reach an agreement.

The skeleton of walking with someone is agreement. This is because, in order for two different people to act in the same way, they must first reconcile their differences and agree on a specific course of action. Because no two people are the same, an agreement is what cancels out the differences.

We must first consider what it would be like to walk with a fellow human being who we can see in order to have a better understanding of what it would be like to walk with God, whom we cannot see and whom no eyes have ever seen.

If you want to go for a walk with me in the street or a field, we have to:

  • Follow the same path.
  • Go in the same direction.
  • Move at the same pace simultaneously.

How about when the man you are supposed to walk with is a superior person? Okay, let’s take this person to be your husband (if you’re a married woman), your father, or your elder brother.

Or perhaps, you are going to take a walk with your boss at your workplace. Who has the power to sack you from your workplace and deprive you of the benefits you might have been enjoying as a result of the work, which might include a house, car, insurance, and many more? Now consider taking a walk with him. 

The superior decides:

Walking With God

I would ask you some questions. Who’s more knowledgeable? Who’s to decide the path you people would follow? You or him? I believe you will agree with me that it’s him.

When he decides, what are you expected to do? To submit and obey. That’s it. But that would usually be when you are meant to benefit from the move. 

Why is walking with God, so important?

Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord… (AMP)

What your plans might look like

Every person has positive expectations and ideas for his or her life. There are things you want for yourself. Yours might resemble this:

  • To prosper in life
  • To be successful in business.
  • Also, to be in excellent health.
  • To take advantage of life’s many opportunities with friends and family.

The devil is not without plans for you

I also believe that the devil has plans for you as well and many are walking in Satan’s plans as I write. They may not even realize it, but they are.

The devil is out to destroy our relationships with God.  My friend, the devil has plans for your life, and it may look like this (John 10:10):

  • To make you doubt God and question His word.
  • To cause you to live in fear.
  • Also, to cause you to fail in your career and life.
  • To stray you out of God’s thoughts and plans for you.

God’s Plan

Finally, God has plans for us and in them, we can find comfort. It is to give us an expected end. God has a plan beyond anything that we have ever known. The eye has not seen, nor the ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man.

God never intended His people to be ordinary. But the Scripture is asking, “Can two walk together unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3).

We can never experience this expected end unless we walk with God. His wonderful thoughts concerning us can never be actualized unless we submit, obey, and follow him while he leads. That’s a good reason why we need to walk with him.

How to walk with God

Here are the 7 C’s of how you can easily walk with God.

1. Call to mind His personality

I began by pointing you to a walk between two people. I also required that you imagine walking with a superior person; your father, or even your boss. 

So, before considering taking a forever walk with God, you have to call to mind who has called you to walk with Him. He is:

  • A best friend any human can have. A friend that loves us more than we love ourselves.
  • A loving Father with fantastic thoughts for his children.
  • An unchangeable God who keeps covenants.
  • A King that cannot change his words due to circumstance. He has promised to be with us always.

By keeping in mind that He is unlike a man who can leave you on the way and turn back, you prepare your heart to follow him wherever He goes.

2. Comprehend where he is going

Knowing his personality is not enough. You have to ask yourself, what is in his mind. Where does he want me to go? 

You can only discover this by digging deep into his words daily. Always take the scriptures personally because spirituality is a one-on-one relationship with God.

Therefore, whenever you read the scripture, some questions ought always to be on your mind. What is God telling me from this verse or chapter? “What does he want me to do”? With these questions, you’ll set your heart to being a doer of the Word and not a mere reader.

3. Count the cost and take courage.

Despite the kind of person our God is—the best friend ever, a loving Father, an unchangeable God, the great monarch of Zion, etc., there is also an aspect of him we must take note of in our walk with him, and they include:

  • He seems to be far off at times, even though he is always very near.
  • He seems to be silent, though he has a lot to reveal to us.
  • His ways are higher than ours, and we may not fully understand him as we go with him. We misunderstand him most of the time when we try to judge his judgments using our limited faculties.

4. Care for your heart.

As we walk with God, the devil does not go to sleep or give up on us. He strategically places distractions here and there. The essence of these distractions is to make us see “better things” to follow other than God.

So, as the scripture says in Proverbs 4:23, we are to guide our hearts with all diligence, for out of the heart are the issues of life. Protect your heart. Ignore every suggestion the enemy might bring along the way and stay focused on God.

5. Communicate often 

It’s weird to walk a long distance with a friend without having something to discuss. If that happens, the journey becomes dry, uninteresting, and weary.

If you would like to walk with God and go far with him, frequent communication with him would be indispensable. This entails praying constantly with all manner of prayers. 

  • As your Father, tell Him your needs and ask him for provision.
  • As your Friend, tell him stories. Inform Him about every detail of your life.
  • He is also your king. Tell him to avenge your adversary.
  • Worship him as your God. Worship Him always as you walk along with Him in this journey of life.

Make God very real to you by interacting with Him as you would with a friend or a father. But this is to be done with reverence.

6. Cooperate:

Take note that walking with God is a choice. You can choose not to agree with him, to your own detriment. God cannot force you.

To cooperate simply means that you have to agree with God. Meekness is required to cooperate with Him. Let’s learn from our Master, Christ.

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart…" (Matthew 11:29) KJV 

In the context of this article, being meek means being submissive, which means being willing to obey or follow instructions. You have to cooperate with God. You have to always agree with Him.

7. Continue

Lastly, be determined to continue walking with God no matter what may come up. Whenever you get distracted, refocus and continue!


God is a covenant-keeping God. It’s worth walking with him. But to walk with God, it is good to know that you must agree with Him.

Joshua 24:15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

You can make your choice now to agree with God or be in agreement with the devil. 

You, therefore, need to agree with God by accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior if you haven’t (John 1:10-12). Why not agree with God now?
