Did you know that God cares about every single step that you take?
Think of how loving parents watch over their children. They will try and carefully observe every move to keep them from any and all forms of danger. And whenever they possibly can, they will reach out to help them from stumbling. And if they should actually fall, they are right there to dust them off and lift them back up on their feet again.
What an amazing blessing it is, to know that our Heavenly Father’s loves for us is far greater than even the most loving and caring of all earthly parents. Many times we tend to think of the Lord’s love and daily care as just that, ‘a daily thing’. The truth is, it is far more than a daily thing, it is a moment by moment and step by step thing, full of divine love and care that is always there with us, and for us. In fact, when it comes to children, we as earthly parents are never quite sure what direction they are going to take, what their next move is going to be, or what they are planning in their minds. But our Heavenly Father’s step by step care is not only guaranteed, but actually even ‘determined’ – by Him:
‘The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.’ [Proverbs 6:9]‘Why be out of step with God, life, or His blessing?’ Click To Tweet
As much as we would like to know ‘in advance’ the steps of our children, in order to be there for them in times of crisis and danger, we simply just cannot. However, this is not the case with God. Another tremendous promise concerning His step by step care for us, is the blessing of the Lord’s causing our steps to be fruitful, productive, and successful:
‘The steps of a man are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way.’
Why be out of step with God, life, or His blessing? Let God guide your steps. This way, He’s right there with you, every step of the way.
