KING DAVID SPOKE through the Holy Spirit, “Every step of a righteous man is ordered by God”. My favorite gospel singer Fred Hammond wrote a song about this Psalm and the next set of lyrics sings, “although you may not know His mind, He will reveal it all in time. Until then, your steps are ordered by God”.
This Christian walk is often veiled and we can’t see what’s up ahead. God may have given you a vision of what’s coming and a promise of His Word; but He doesn’t always reveal the path or time it takes to get there. “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, And He delights in his way.” Psalms 37:23 This is literally translated: a good man, one found to be wholly given to the Lord, has his steps ESTABLISHED by God; (the same Hebrew word is used when the prophet Samuel spoke to David of God establishing his kingdom forever) and He (God) KNOWS it and even takes pleasure in it
. God did establish King David’s kingdom forever. God is faithful to keep His Word. He is not a man that He should lie. He is a promise-keeper. Does this not give you hope in your situation right now? Do you not realize that God’s way for you is divine and beautiful? I know it’s hard when we cannot see or even understand our path, but the fact that God takes pleasure in it, should make us excited to see where we are going and fill us with hope!
His way is perfect and it is always good. God is faithful and so He guards the steps of His faithful ones. He is protecting, leading, guiding, directing His children. Whom shall I fear or of what shall I be afraid? Why is your heart discouraged? “Then the Lord answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry. “Behold the proud, His soul is not upright in him; But the just shall live by his faith.”Habakkuk 2:2-4 NKJVThat righteous man who wholly trusts in the Lord to see them through and bring the vision to pass, lives by faith. It will surely come.
Read that again. Trust the Word of the Lord. Trust what He is doing and trust what He shows you. These are dark days, yet He still establishes your steps. Stay on the narrow path. Those things He promised will surely come. The vision will come to pass. There is no Red Sea He won’t open, no valley of death that He will not light up, no mountain too high, no wilderness too barren and no enemy in hell can stop Him. #runyourrace
