A Closer Walk

"And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him." - Genesis 7:5

Anne Graham Lotz was born and reared in Montreat, North Carolina, the second daughter of evangelist Billy Graham and his wife Ruth. Anne is the wife of Dr. Dan Lotz and the mother of three children. A gifted speaker, Anne has taught Bible Study Fellowship, a weekly Bible study class in Raleigh, North Carolina of over 500 women. Her original class multiplied until today there are ten other classes of similar size in Raleigh. When Anne and Dan attend football games at his alma mater, the University of North Carolina, thousands of people cram in the parking lots, and she is unable to see where she's going. However, her husband, a head taller at 6'7", can look over the crowd, so he takes her hand and leads them to their seats. "The way I get from the car to my seat is just by holding his hand and following him closely through the crowd," Lotz says. She follows the same procedure with the Lord. "I just try to faithfully follow the Lord step by step and day by day," she says. "Ten years from now, I just want to look back and know that to the best of my ability I have been obedient to God's call on my life."

The secret to having a closer walk with God is following the Lord step by step. Today in prayer, confess any sin in your life and seek Christ's forgiveness. Seek to walk with Him throughout every day, in every way.

"To cling always to God and to the things of God--this must be our major effort, this must be the road that the heart follows." - John Cassian

God's Word: "Noah did everything just as God commanded him." - Genesis 6:22
