LET THE LORD DIRECT YOUR STEPS

It is essential for believers to allow the Lord direct our steps. Far too often, we make plans without ever consulting God. Some of the plans are not in God’s will. Then we find out that they have become a disaster. We cannot afford to go ahead of God. He knows the way we should take. His plan for our lives is to do good, and to prosper. Letting the Lord direct our steps is referenced in Proverbs 16:9 and reads in this manner:

“We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.”

In this passage, the writer of this wisdom literature provides insight about how to live. Throughout this chapter, he provides instruction on ways we are to honor God. There is a way to live harmoniously with God. When one seeks to please God, they will consult God before they set out on a journey. The writer indicates that while we make plans, it is the Lord who directs our path. Never go ahead of God. Always ask Him for direction. Pray for wisdom that you might follow the Lord in every step that you make
