“The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way” Psalm 37:23, NKJV.
When I was young in knowing God, I use to think that life was going to be smooth and everything was going to fall into my lap. Success was going to be easy. Little did I know the trials and obstacles I would face. Little did I know the failures I would end up having. The opportunities I would find myself missing. I didn’t expect there to be adversity in life.
Yet through it all, I have found something amazing about what God does for a good man: He orders his steps. He always brings triumph from our trials. When we don’t see a blessing coming, it comes! When one door closes, another will open for you! You will always run into something good, as if God had been at work the entire time. It’s because He was.
You will come to realize that not some, but ALL of your steps are ordered by the Lord.
Regardless of what you experience or see, do not let go, do not sway, do not be discouraged from being a good man. No matter the state of your finances, remain a good man because God is ordering your steps. You will find yourself hearing from God and finding out how to get things back on track. A good man will find favor because God delights in His way! He’s carrying you without you even realizing it. He’s doing things for you don’t even realize He’s doing. A good man will ALWAYS find success because the Lord orders His steps there.
Prayer: I thank You Father for Your Word. I’m excited! Everything’s going to work out. Regardless of what I go through, my steps are being ordered! I will remain a good man. I will see victory and all that You have for me. Deeply plant Your ways in me and give me a hearing ear at all times. I know I will find my success because the steps of a good man are ordered by You! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
