We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps. Proverbs 16:9 NLT
Steps! We take them to walk ahead. They propel us to move where we need to go and provide strength to help us arrive. Steps describe the mental goals we set, as we try to accomplish tasks in our lives. But sometimes we forget to ask God where HE wants us to go.
God wants us to follow Jesus. He blesses us with guiding and gives courage to walk in truth. He helps us STEP in the gifts of His greatness, even when there's bumps in the road. He longs for us to discover His blessings, but first we need to leave doubt behind.
Fear is a liar! It prevents us from expecting GOOD will come. It convinces us we’re not good enough to experience the power of His love. But JOY waits in abundance . God knows how to help us find it. He promises to help, but first we must TRUST in what He WILL provide. God has a plan for our days! He is the ONE who determines our steps.
If we pray for guidance, God will give wisdom to know where to go. HE WILL help us STEP in the right direction. As we release what's holding us back from experiencing wholeness, He will humble our hearts and help us find needed PEACE.
God will guard our hearts as we gratefully focus on what’s to come. He WILL lay a path for us to follow. We don’t have to stand in the sidelines of wonder. The Lord is our strength! Keep stepping, friends! Find HOPE in the footsteps of Jesus. Better days are coming! Stay focused on the Father as you step ahead in FAITH.
God, thank you for reminding us who’s in charge of every single thing. Remove the fear which stops us from stepping in FAITH. We will walk on Your path of purpose and find STRENGTH to witness what comes from surrender. Thank you for helping us remember when we step in faith, we ALWAYS draw closer to YOU. Thank you, Lord for moving us through every day. We’re so grateful we don’t have to walk alone. Amen
