Correct.  Enoch by faith diligently sought after God, and received God's favor.

"By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God. 6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him." Hebrews 11:5-6

By Faith Enoch Was Taken Up
So That He Should Not See Death (Hebrews 11:5)

Faith is the assurance of things hoped for...
the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

1. What is the thing hoped for...or is not seen? What Is The Thing Hoped For: 
The God will reward those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6)
2. What is man's part, if any? Enoch sought after God and "was pleasing to God."
3. What is God's part? God rewarded Enoch by taking him up to heaven so that Enoch would not see death.
4. How did Enoch have this assurance and conviction that God would reward him?
  1. Understand the thing hoped for...or the thing not seen.
  2. Hear God's word (Faith comes by hearing...and hearing by the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17) to understand God's power and faithfulness to His promises.
  3. Do your part, if any.

  4. Trust God that He has done what He has said...and/or that He will do what He promises.

  5. Pray that God will help increase your belief and faith (Luke 17:5, Mark 9:23-24) and give you wisdom (James 1:5).

Sometimes God rewards us in ways that we do not expect.  We do not know if God had promised to Enoch that he would not see death.  The scriptures do not give us this information.  But we do know from scriptures that the reward that Enoch received was as a result of his faith (Hebrews 11:5).

Do you have faith that God will reward you...if you seek after Him...and choose to do those things that are pleasing in God's sight?
