THE STEPS OF A GOOD MAN
The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down; for the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalm 37:23,24
The word ordered is translated pre-arranged or established, not to be confused with the doctrine of predestination. But nonetheless, our steps are ordered by the Lord because He knows the way in which we are to step.
The first expression of Christ's body was called "The Way," and Jesus is the Way, the only way and it is He who leads us! Walking the paths of life we encounter many detours: construction, bumpy roads and even accidents that can not only slow us down but make us rely on our built-in Holy Spirit GPS.
In the following devotionals, we will observe the many steps that lead to peace and contentment in the Lord and if we will follow Him, we will truly possess the abundant joy, strength and the riches of His covenant. So, step out in faith and traverse the steps of a good man! (and woman)
I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, nor His descendants (us) begging bread. He is ever merciful and lends; and His descendants (us) are blessed. Psalm 37:25,26
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
