If you are a follower of Christ and you’re living your life for Him, these promises are for you as much as they are for me. Even though our God is busy running the universe each day, He is never too busy to be intimately involved with every little detail of our lives when we invite Him to be. The thing is that God is a gentleman. He won’t push His way into our lives and force us to do His will. He wants to be invited into every area of our lives, and He wants to be asked for His intimate involvement.
“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.” ~ Psalm 37:23-24
That’s why David says in the same psalm: “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.” (Psalm 37:5) As we “commit” our ways to God each day in every situation and circumstance, we open the door for Him to direct our steps in the paths of His best blessings. Notice that David says in this verse, “Trust also in Him.” That means that when we commit our ways to the Lord, we must do it with an attitude that says to Him, “I believe You have my best interests at heart.” If we have reservations about God’s intentions for us, we will never be able to submit to His will and plans the way we need to, and we will rob ourselves of His best.
Scripture says: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not lean on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6) When we place our trust firmly in God–when we refuse to rely on our own pitiful resources, and earnestly seek His will in every situation–He has promised to guide and guard our steps. Maybe today, you are baffled by some of your own circumstances, and you’re tempted to despair. Let me encourage you to follow the Lord’s recipe for success, and watch Him turn your troubles into triumphs every time!
Have a wonderful day in His presence allowing Him to direct your steps. Love you all in Christ. Please share this blog with others and I pray that it will bring encouragement in their walk with Jesus! God bless you for sharing!
Jesus is a safe harbor
I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him.
If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32.
He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips.
I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS!
I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE!
