Step by step

Step by step
‘The Lord directs the steps of the godly…’ Psalm 37:23 NLT
Ever tripped up and fallen flat on your face? Ouch! And how embarrassing if you’re in a crowded place at the time! The shame! If we’re not careful we can go through life like this. No, I don’t mean tripping up every time we leave the house! But blundering along, making serious, stupid or careless mistakes that cause our lives to crash-land. Can we avoid it? Is it possible? God says it is: ‘The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.’ (Psalm 37:23 NLT) This means we are to:
(1) Avoid ‘People Pressure’. Never do what others want you to do if it goes against what God says. Live God’s way and you’ll avoid falling flat on your face.
(2) Tune into God’s timing. Not many of us are good at waiting. Whatever it is we want, ‘we want it and we want it now!’ God isn’t going to forget about you or leave you waiting unnecessarily. He is 100% tuned into every part, every detail of your life. Don’t let your impatience cause you to run ahead or you’ll find yourself on slippery ground and you’ll trip up.
(3) Trust God. When God says He’ll do something, you can be guaranteed that He will do it. He doesn’t change His mind, get sidetracked or decide He can’t be bothered! God always has your best interests in mind. Walk step by step with Him.
