Order my steps in your word.
This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. But the truth is, If God orders our steps, we still have to watch where we’re going. This doesn’t mean we don’t have a choice while walking. We are still in control of what direction we take. In fact, the word steps here, in the Hebrew language, means to prepare or set up. David, who wrote this, was saying, God, prepares or sets up my steps. He plans the path for my feet to take because He made the path and He knows where it leads. However, it’s up to us whether or not we respond to that order. He’s the voice on our spiritual GPS, but we the ability to lower the volume and even turn it off.
Trust in God and also trust in what He’s preparing and setting you up for. Where He’s leading you is a setup for something great. It might not be great right now, but you’re not there yet. Don’t mistake a rest area for a destination. There is not one step that you will take that God doesn’t already know about. He planned every valley, every mountain, every sunset, and sunrise. If you follow what He’s prepared, you’ll never be anywhere that isn’t a part of a setup for what is best in your life.
