Small Steps

Isaiah 30:21

Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”

Proverbs 16:9

 In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.

Lisa Tuerkhurst says, “the next big step God wants you to take, might actually be small. But we’ll never know what that next step is if we don’t listen for GOD’S voice in everything we do, everywhere we go”

God will guide our steps and if we waver a bit, he will welcome us back.  I have been off the path so many times.  I would spend long periods of time wondering a path of my own making.  Making myself believe that the path was right and good until life would hit, consequences would arise and challenges would confront me and then I realized the path I was on wasn’t so right.  I can’t believe that it has taken me over 50 years to acknowledge that my path is not the best for me.  I am aware of my path now, I’m aware when I’m wavering and I quickly ask God to steer me back.

I encourage you to ask Him to steer you back.  He will never tire of coming to your rescue but believe me, you will tire of walking the path of your own making.  So ask Him!

Lord I’m grateful that You never have given up on me.  I thank You!  Please Lord help me to be firm in my steps and even if I can’t take big steps that I will understand  that small ones will lead me to You also.  Help me to help others find Your path.  Amen!
