“The LORD directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives” – Psalm 37:23 (NIV).
If you are caught up with time, and darkness finds you on a lonely highway, you will certainly be careful with every step you take while heading back home. For the steps you take can lead you safely home or into a foxhole filled with bobby traps ready to explode. Anyone in that situation must watch every step of the way, praying his steps leads him into the right path.
In a sense our earthly lives are very much like that. We are trudging along a highway and are sarrounded by enemy camp. As we step ahead that enemy hopes we would stumble, get distracted, falter and take the wrong detour down into his captive territory. Once locked in there that would be the end of the road leading us safely home.
The enemy camp is mounted by Satan at the head and whose business is none else than lure us astray. And how does he do it? Throw baits. Darken the paths. Blind the traveller. Make one loose focus..
For this reason everyone of us in the Christian journey must commit his steps to the Lord just as the psalmist says. This is not a part time affair but one due everyday of our lives. And where we do that the Lord will watch every step of our lives, until we reach safely home.
Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I commit to you my steps that you lead them into the right path, to your glory, in Jesus’s name, I do pray!
