I was led to message and to share it with you. Oftentimes, God will use our experiences in life as stepping stones to prepare us for what He has in store next. Scripture tells us that He’ll even take the things the enemy tries to bring against us and turn them around and use them for our good. He is always leading us on a journey of preparation. Have a wonderful day as you allow the Lord to direct your steps. Have wonderful day as you as you reman in His presence and allowing Him to direct your steps. Love you all.
“A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9
That’s why it’s so important to keep our eyes focused on the Lord. We have to trust that when we are submitted to Him—even if we don’t understand—He is ordering our steps. If something is not happening on your timetable, remind yourself, “God knows what He is doing. He has my best interest at heart. God is preparing me.” While you’re waiting, don’t make the mistake of trying to figure everything out. If you’re constantly trying to figure things out, that will only frustrate you. Turn it over to God. Declare, “God, my times are in Your hands. I’m not going to worry because I trust that You are leading me on a journey of preparation for all the wonderful blessings You have in store for me.”
Precious Lord Jesus, we love You. Your word says: “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps .” (Proverbs 16:9) Therefore, I pray that no matter what our mind plans–no matter what anyone else plans for us–that YOU, Lord, would direct our steps and make them sure. Send us some encouragement while we’re waiting on You, but don’t let us settle for less than Your best! In Jesus precious name. Amen.
