He Directs Our Steps

on February 28, 2012

“The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.”  Proverbs 16:1

I find it very interesting that God works in ways you least expect.  He answers our prayer, but sometimes in ways we never thought possible.  We may even think that we should be able to see the logic in the way God works, but sometimes we may never know or understand His reasoning.

Proverbs 16:9 tells us, “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps.”  This verse is filled with so much truth.  We all have plans for ourselves and things we’d like to see accomplished in our lives. However, the closer we become to God, the more we realize how unimportant our plans really are.

When we’re truly in sync with God, we’ll be desiring for Him to direct our steps.  Our logic and our ways won’t matter anymore, we’ll be waiting for God to work in us.  As we’re waiting on Him, we’ll become more likely to be open to follow His plan, even when it seems like the most unlikely thing to happen.  The beauty of God’s plans for us is that sometimes He can take what seems impossible or illogical and use it for His ultimate glory.  Are you trusting God to direct your steps today?

“Man’s goings are of the Lord; how can a man then understand his own way.”  Proverbs 20:24
