The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. Psalm 37:23-24 NKJ
Regardless of your circumstance, God has made a way for you.
I LOVE that the Lord orders our steps and takes great delight in the plans He has for us. Everyday, I think about that, the great God of the universe orders my steps. There’s nothing that escapes Him, nothing is impossible to Him and absolutely nothing takes Him by surprise. Wherever I go, whatever I do, He sees and orders my steps.
The steps of Esther were ordered by God as well. I’m sure when she was herded up with the other young ladies and taken from family and friends, she probably wondered why. But look how God not only favored her and positioned her as queen, but saved a nation, a people, using a mere child bride to do it.
I get so excited when I look at that story of Gods deliverance. Listen to this verse from Esther 8:17 NLT “In every province and city, wherever the king’s decree arrived, the Jews rejoiced and had a great celebration and declared a public festival and holiday. And many of the people of the land became Jews themselves, for they feared what the Jews might do to them.” These were some of the first converts! Can’t beat um, join um!
Thats what God will do with our lives. He brought us down this path so that people from every nation and tribe will be won to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. We are to rejoice, celebrate the goodness of our God, even when we don’t understand the why’s or the when’s, He orders our steps.
Remember that when you walk down your path today. Even when you fall, you won’t stay down because God holds you up.
No Surprise To Him,
