GOD ORDERS OUR STEPS!
"The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand." Psalm 37:23, 24
IN JESUS TODAY!
Lead and guide us O Lord, order our steps and direct our paths. Is it unclear what steps we ought to take? Many times it is said, "I don't know what to do next!" When things seem to get bad and everything is cloudy, and our vision is not clear, it's time to call on Jesus. When we call on Jesus he will reach out to us and grab our hand and guide us to safety. He wants to help you find his way!
ALL WE LIKE SHEEP…
As we graze the land sometimes we become blind and walk with our hands and arms extended trying to feel our way to safety. Sort of like Marco Polo or Hide-N-seek. We will walk, trying to feel our way in front of us, banging and bruising ourselves by running into walls, stumbling over chairs and other obstacles in our way, and spilling all that is on the tables in front of us. We will continue to do this until our blindfold is removed. Unlike Marco Polo and Hide-N-Seek, life is not a game of tag, either in or out of the water. In life we need more than the other voices around us to find our way. We need the blindfold removed and to hear and follow the steps that Jesus has ordered for us in his word as we read,
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119:105
That's what Jesus does when we call on him. He removes the blindfold and orders our steps. Even if you have fallen, call out to Jesus and he will guide you into the right paths.
"He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail." 1Samuel 2:9
Jesus wants to help you up out of the miry clay and set you firm on your feet again. He will give directions for you to follow and his directions will keep you!
LET GOD GUIDE YOUR FEET!
