We Do the Walking

The steps of a [good] man are directed and established by the Lord when He delights in his way [and He busies Himself with his every step]. Though he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down, for the Lord grasps his hand in support and upholds him.

(Psalm 37:23-24)

God is busy with our every step! That means we are never alone. When we fall down He helps us back up and encourages us to go forward again. No person will learn to be led by God without making some mistakes, but remember that God knew about them before they took place (see Psalm 139:16). Remember that God delights in you and is busy with your every step. If you fall, He will lift you up.

All of the great men and women we read about and admire in the Bible and throughout history made mistakes. God does not choose us because we are perfect, but so He can show Himself strong through us. He actually chooses on purpose the weak and foolish things of the world to amaze everyone and show His greatness
(see 1 Corinthians 1:28-29). Don't accept pressure from the enemy to be perfect and never make mistakes. Every day, do you best and trust God to do the rest! Don't ever be afraid of your mistakes, but instead have an attitude of learning from them. Let all of your mistakes be a college course in what not to ever do again!

God's Word For You Today: Do not fear; God is with you.

Spend Time in God's Presence

As for me, I will continue beholding Your face in righteousness (rightness, justice, and right standing with You); I shall be fully satisfied, when I awake [to find myself] beholding Your form [and having sweet communion with You].

(Psalm 17:15)

There is a God-shaped hole inside every one of us, and we cannot buy something across the counter to fill that hole. The only thing that is going to fill that craving is God Himself. One prayer will not be enough. We have to have daily maintenance. The Bible says, "Ever be filled and stimulated with the [Holy] Spirit." (EPHESIANS 5:18)

I spent years trying to find a time to fit God into my day. God finally told me to stop trying to work Him into my schedule, but to work me schedule around Him.

Contentment is found in the Lord's presence. The Psalms proclaim that the fullness of joy is in God's presence: "You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore." (16:11)

We will be fully satisfied when we awake to find ourselves beholding His form and having sweet communion with Him. When God is first in our lives to the point where He is the first thing on our minds when we wake up in the morning, we will have a depth of satisfaction that no devil can take away from us.
