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 16:9 “A 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
I continue to be in His service…Rev
