For the month of October, our morning Bible Study group will be using “Becoming a Woman who Walks With God” by Cynthia Heald.

Our focus Scripture for this month is:

“But whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him: the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.” (1 John 2:5-6, NASB)

Cynthia Heald writes:

“To walk with the Lord is to be with Him consistently, to go with Him where He wants me to go, to let Him set the pace and to delight in His companionship above all others.”

(Becoming A Woman Who Walks With God, page 9)

Begin to think about what this means for you – how do we begin to achieve this walk?

As we go through the month, let’s keep asking ourselves, “What was the manner in which Jesus walked?”

As we discover how He walked and lived, may we discover the secret and joy to walking with God.


“Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me.” (John 15:4, NLT)

The word remain, or abide, is written in a tense which actually means an ongoing, or continual action.

We cannot just know about Christ, sit in a pew weekly, and forego surrendering to Him.

In these days we are finding ourselves, I am finding myself more and more dependent on Scripture. At times, I open my Bible during the day and just read a Scripture here or there. It’s how I regain focus, and hope.

“To abide in Christ is to attach our delicate, fragile selves firmly and permanently into the Vine in order to receive His strength and security.”

(Becoming A Woman Who Walks With God, page 12)

The devotional asks: In what areas of my life do I especially need the security of abiding in Christ?

In these days we are living, we can become easily overwhelmed with sadness at all the disunity, and division, and isolation which is occurring around us. But as we attach ourselves to Him, we can find hope to believe for the days ahead.

Lord, help us to stay faithfully,
and continually,
and intentionally
connected to You.
