When God Orders Our Steps

One of my very favorite parts of the Christian life is how God orders our steps.

I just love it when I see someone in the post office or at the grocery store and have a conversation that is obviously a “God-thing,” a “God-opportunity,” and as we say good-bye, I realize that if I hadn’t been running late, I wouldn’t have run into them. I smile, knowing God is with me. That’s what I mean by “ordered steps.”

He’s the Director

God can use any part of how our day is going for His purposes and to bless us. I so appreciate the perfect parking place, the short line, the green light that helps me arrive at my meeting just when someone else is leaving the building and I get to speak an encouraging word. Truly, isn’t the best part of any day “making” someone else’s?

Conversely, I have to trust God with the full parking lot, the long line and the red light, knowing He is still ordering my steps. Maybe if I was on the road sooner, I would have been the one in the accident on the side of the road. He knows what’s best and as I surrender my daily life to Him, He is daily in my life.

Partners with God

Talk about how to keep our relationship with Him fresh and alive! When we ask Him to order our steps, we will be amazed at how smooth our day will go, how the seams will come together and how He will create opportunities to glorify Him and help someone else. We need to ask Him for divine appointments and declare ourselves willing partners with Him and see what supernatural things He will do. It’s so exciting and fulfilling.

Psalm 37:23 says, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” (NLT)

The phrase “orders our steps” come from the King James Version, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord; and he delighteth in his way.”

He Cares About Our Details

Do we realize our Lord is truly interested in us and our daily agenda? Do we realize He is not only “with us” in a general sense, but also “with us” in “every detail” of our lives? He is. He cares about our every care.

We can smile. He is with us. He is leading us and guiding us. As we surrender…

Do you already ask the Lord to direct your daily steps or is it something you might try today?

    How many times has the Lord given a vision of your future, relating His desires. I often times hold on to these visions, because they encourage me and keep me moving forward towards Him. I also realize that my steps are ordered and marvel at his greatness. He is not bound by time and what is happening to me now and what will happen to me in the future, all happen at the same time.
