"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.

How comforting!

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!

    "And your life will be brighter than the noonday; it’s darkness will be like the morning. And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security”  (Job 11:17-19.)

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone. The philosopher Victor Frankly who survived the Holocaust where he lost his entire family found hope was the most important weapon that enabled him come out alive. He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
    
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
