OUR LORD WHO DIRECTS OUR STEPS
The Lord our God sees all things and knows all things. Having a counselor and an advisor who know every possible scenario we can face is truly a great advantage. If we trust in Jesus to be our saviour and then surrender our lives to Him to be our Lord, we are subscribing to His sovereign rulership over our lives.
Even though we sense that we are making our own decisions pertaining to our lives, the Lord directs our steps.
As it says in Psalm 16 verse 9, "A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps".
This concept is backed up by Proverbs 19 verse 21 - “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”
He takes great pleasure is the moment-by-moment events in the lives of those who are subject to Him and though we sometimes stumble, He holds our hands and sets us on our feet.
This dynamic is described in Psalm 37 verse 23 - 24 - “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand.”
In the book of Isaiah chapter 48 verse 17 the scriptures confirm again, 'This is what the Lord says—your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you what is best for you who directs you in the way you should go."'
Bless the Lord who teaches us and guides us.
