Every Step I Take…

The LORD directs the steps of the Godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.
Psalm 37:23

It’s impossible to walk without taking a series of steps. If we just stand still, being inactive, we will remain stationary. Every step we take moves us closer & closer to our destination. The only way forward is to move & take steps heading towards our destination. If we’re unwilling to do this, we stagnate.

Today’s verse is chock-a-block full of wisdom for our future. It reminds us that God directs our steps. This means if we aren’t moving & taking steps forward in a Godly life, He has nothing to direct. If we’re unwilling to take steps of faith then our lives will begin to stagnate, eventually becoming stale & decrepit.

Once we’re moving with God directing our steps, we’re told that He delights in every detail of our lives. This means He’s mindful, attentive & protective of every detail of our life & He delight in them. But it all starts with us stepping forward in life allowing God to direct us as we do life His way.

This week let’s make sure we’re moving not standing still. Let’s choose an area of our life that seems to be stagnating and find God’s way to move forward in it. As we start making steps God will start directing them. In no time at all He’ll be delighting over them. The very area we were stagnating in will become the area He’s delighting in and our future will become so much greater than our past.
