The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord,
and He delights in his way.

(Ps. 37:23)

God wants to order, guide, and direct your steps. A real key to receiving daily guidance from the Lord is to acknowledge Him as Proverbs 3:5-6 states: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths."

As a born-again believer, Christ lives on the inside of you. You can ignore Him or acknowledge Him. To acknowledge Him in all your ways is to recognize that Jesus has the wisdom, insight, guidance, and direction that you need. He promises to show you what to do and the direction to take when you lean on Him instead of trying to figure things out on your own.

Years ago when Sharon and I were traveling in ministry, we were on the interstate driving through Houston. I saw an exit sign and the Lord spoke to me, "Turn off." I had to cross several lanes to do so, but we got off the interstate. Sharon asked me, "What are we doing?" I said, "I don't know, but the Lord said to turn off here."

We stopped at the Galleria Mall; and as we walked through the entrance, we saw a high school friend who was in Houston, getting treatment for cancer at the M. D. Anderson Hospital. Because our steps were ordered by the Lord, we were able to share the Word of healing with him. We laid hands on him and prayed for him. Afterward, we left the mall, walked to our car, and got back on the interstate.

God wants to direct your steps in that same way. He is arranging divine encounters for you not only to bless you but so you can be a blessing to others as well.


My steps are ordered, guided, directed, and established by the Lord. I am always in the right place at the right time. He delights in leading me into victory in every area of my life.
