“Walking Close With Him”
by Dona Hake
Let us continue with our meditation on the transformed life of a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us always yield to the Master with a heart that is pliable. Here is where the transformed life begins, continues and flourishes. If we act and live in accordance with the prevailing standards, attitudes and practices of this world… we are yielding our hearts in the wrong place, and little by little we are being conformed to this world. Beware!  for this is why so many Christians are unable to live and serve God with a whole heart. Be ye transformed!
As we purpose to yield to God a pliable heart , without a doubt… our heart will be transformed!   One of the best secrets of a yielded heart is when God is your best Friend.  Close fellowship with Him will nourish transformation within us. The Lord desires our fellowship. He desires to be our friend and our confidant. As we walk ever so closely with Him we will find ourselves talking to Him about the smallest of matters . Our thoughts and desires are heard and seen by Him sometimes before we even realize that they exist. After all isn’t that how good friends are with us? The slightest change in our faces or behavior, and without us saying a word they know something is going on deep within us.
When we purpose to walk the transformed life we see God in everything around us. We will see Him as the answer to ANYTHING that could come against us, we will see Him as our strength when we are weak, we will just see Him at work in every detail of our life…He shall be our Everything!

“Become intimate with him in whatever you do,
and he will lead you wherever you go.”
Proverbs 3:6 The Passion Translation
