  • COLUMN: God is with us, 24-7

    Every hour of every day, or as many say 24-7, was the experience of Enoch.  Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:21-24). He was always with God. In Psalm 73:23 the Psalmist speaks of always being in God’s presence. He believed, “It is good to be near God.”

    How do we walk with God continually through the day? We must invite God into our lives 24-7.

    To always be with God means we are held in God’s hands.
