“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Psalm 37:23
A very Blessed Monday to you!
It’s so reassuring to know today that God orders our steps. One of the things you will notice about today’s verse is that God orders the steps of the godly. This word ‘godly’ is not talking about one who does not sin. Here, ‘godly’ refers to one who puts his or her trust in the Living God. Not only has he put his trust in God but he is striving to live a life that is pleasing to God. He may not be perfect but he has submitted to God’s authority in his life and so he brings delight to the Father. When such is the case, God then assumes the responsibility for His sheep and He orders his steps. He knows that His sheep will hear His voice and would follow His direction and leading.
Are you a sheep who hears and obeys the voice of your Shepherd? If you are, then you can rest assured the He will order your steps. Obedience to the voice of God brings blessings that cannot be measured. If you are not walking in obedience as you should, today is the day to commit yourself to obey the Father so that He can lead you in the way that you have to go. The stress and the anxiety of making the right decisions will no longer be yours because you now have the Shepherd leading you. He knows all and so His choices are always the best.
Will you commit your steps to Him so that you can be confident that your choices are God ordained? Choose to follow Him today. Let today be the start of a wonderful journey with the Lord. I promise you it would be the best decision of your life.
Lord, I want You to delight in me as I walk in obedience to You. Please take control of my life. I surrender myself to You and ask You to order my steps every day from now on. I thank You for hearing and answering the cry of my heart. Thank You for Your peace. Amen.
