“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 used 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 and the opportunities I would find myself missing.
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 and affirms He is for us. 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, and do not be discouraged from being a good man. He is ordering your steps, and He is going to show out in your life.
Prayer: Father, thank you for your mighty word. Everything’s going to work out. Help me to continue with faith, being a good man that does good things. I will see the victory come to pass. Deeply plant your ways in me and give me a hearing ear in these times. You delight in my way, and the steps of a good man are ordered by you! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
