STEPS

The Steps of a Good Man

Psalm 37:23-24 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way. Vs 24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand.” 

There are two choices in life:

  • Having God to order our steps in His will.
  • On the other hand, we take it upon ourselves to order our own steps by our own will.

God numbers our steps

Job 14:16 “For now You number my steps, But do not watch over my sin.

God counts all our steps

Job 31:4 “Does he not see my ways, And count all my steps?”

God sees our entire goings.

Job 34:21“For His eyes are on the ways of man, And He sees all his steps.”

God ponders all our goings and

Proverbs 5:21 “For the ways of a man are before the Lord, and He ponders all his paths.”

God directs our steps.

Proverbs 16:9A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.”

God will order our steps according to His will, all we have to is allow ourselves to be led by His Spirit. One might ask the question “why does God order our steps?” God wants us to be safe, headed in the right direction, and away from unnecessary problems or circumstances. His desire is to keep us on the path of blessings and success.

Psalm 37:23 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.”  

God delights to see His people, walking in His ordered paths. When we yield to God’s will in ordering our steps, we will not fall into one of the devil’s traps or snares.

Psalm 17:4 “Concerning the works of men, by the word of Your lips, I have kept away from the paths of the destroyer.”

Psalm 119:133, “Order my steps in the Word: and let not iniquity have dominion over me.”

Lord Jesus, thank you for ordering each of our steps. May your people walk by faith in you and not by what is seen in the world, in Your precious name…Amen

Jealousy

A seed of jealousy can allow anger and rage to swell! You can not control the feeling that someone has about you. When someone allows jealousy to consume them, it can eventually destroy a healthy relationship that has been established. We can have a humble spirit and still have good self-esteem.

James 3:14-16  But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. 15 This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice.” English Standard Version

OVERFLOW

Overflow

Psalm 23:5 “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over.

Starting with Adam and Eve in the garden, God has made provision for his people.

Genesis 3:21 “Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them.”

God is not “stingy” with His blessings, and delights in seeing His people prosper. Scripture tells us that it is His good pleasure to bless His people.

Luke 12:32 “Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.”

Not only is it God’s good pleasure to provide for His people, He provides in abundance. The psalmist stated in the 23 Psalm that their “cup runs over.”

2nd Corinthians 9:8 “And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.

God gives increase to His people in proportion to His infinite resources, not just a minimum amount out of His riches. The blessings of God do not have an expiration date; He is truly a gracious God.

Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Father in heaven, thank you for your abundance, in Jesus name…Amen!
