Genesis 5:24 (AMP); And Enoch walked [in habitual fellowship] with God; and he was not, for God took him [home with Him].
As a new creature in Christ, Enoch’s end is your beginning.
The Bible says that Enoch walked with God and he was not for God took him. The Hebrew word for ‘took’ in our theme scripture is “laqach” which is translated to mean, among other things, take a wife. God took Enoch as one would take a wife. This was how Enoch’s story ended.
For you as a New Testament believer, the Bible says, “For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.” (2 Corinthians 11:2).
Enoch’s habitual life of fellowship and communion ended with his marriage to God. As a Born Again believer, you began the new life as one married to God.
You are not in the habit of prayer for God to marry you. You are in that habit to give birth. Your level of communion is not so that you achieve oneness with Christ; it is for results.
Let this understanding define your prayer life. In prayer, we birth ministries, birth destinies and birth legacies. Never allow your prayer life to be a passive act or a duty. Live in the consciousness that it is a place to give birth; that in prayer ideas are born, inventions take shape and visions become clearer!

GOLDEN NUGGET: Never allow your prayer life to be a passive act or a duty. Live in the consciousness that it is a place to give birth; that in prayer ideas are born, inventions take shape and visions become clearer!
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. It consumes me and defines every aspect of my life. My life is shaped in prayer. I have constant results and bear fruit because I understand my position in prayer. Because this wisdom is at work in me, I give answers to the world, to the glory of Your name and for the expansion of Your kingdom. Amen.
