Today’s Promise

My Steps Are Ordered by God

Psalm 37:23

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. 

The average person in the United States takes about 4,700 steps a day.

Over a lifetime, that’s a lot of steps. For the Christian, each of those steps God orders. The word “ordered” means to “make firm and to establish.” Every day, God is firming up your steps to keep you from falling.

There are two essential truths to remember about God ordering your steps.

First, God has an order for your steps.

As we saw on March 28th in Jeremiah 29:11, God has a plan for your life, and that plan is good. God is directing your steps so you can fulfill the plan He has for you. As you allow, He will show you the right choices and lead you down the best path. He will show you which step to take to keep you going the right way.

Second, God is ordering your steps by securing your footing.

Sometimes life can feel like you are walking up a mountain of gravel. You take a step, and it seems like you slide back two. Progress is slow, treacherous, and exhausting. You are not sure if you will ever reach the top of the mountain.

He keeps you from falling by making sure you are standing on solid ground.

In Psalm 40:2, the psalmist says God has placed his feet on a rock and makes his footsteps firm. God is doing that for you today. While others are sliding backward, or stumbling, God keeps your steps firm and secure. He plants your feet on the path and shows you where you should step. As you seek to follow Christ today, your steps will be directed and confirmed by God.

The second part of this verse is a promise that when you allow God to order your steps, He delights in you. Like a proud father who rejoices in the first steps of his child, God rejoices over you. He takes great joy and delight as you allow Him to order your steps.

Let’s look at that promise once again.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. – Psalm 37:23

Confess this with me.

Today, God is ordering my steps
I am walking in the way He leads me
He has placed me on a firm rock
My every step is directed and secured by Him

In Jesus Name,

When your path is rough and unstable, God is securing your steps.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another promise from God’s word. I hope you will join me. Until then, this is Billy Taylor, and God’s Richest Blessings!
