The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and He delighteth in his way.
So much of our lives, we attempt to set the pace of plans, and He wants us to have dreams, and big ideas. What this verse teaches us isn’t control, but rhythm.
The word ordered here, not only means to direct, but to make firm, and perfect. If we will seek His will, our steps will be made sure, even when we are not sure of what to do next. As a Father steadies His toddler, He will hold us up as we walk.
Perhaps today, you’re getting ready to step into the unknown. He will perfect, or bring to maturity, all conflicts involving His children. Every thing we face, before it stands before us, He has defeated.
We cannot know a battle greater than The Lord Of Hosts. We will never face a force or foe that Christ hasn’t conquered. He loves us too much lead us anywhere but to a place of victory.
Pace yourself, “Proceed as Christ enlightens”. Set your tempo by His direction. When we do, no matter the conflict, He will lead us to victory!
