Proverbs 20:24 (NLT)
How can we understand the road we travel? It is the Lord who directs our steps.

Sometimes we wonder what we are doing on the path we are on. We wonder: why are we in this job? Did we choose the right career? Other times, when we ask God for direction, we are not very happy with His answer. We want Him to agree with our plans instead of us being open to His direction. But we must trust His guidance because He promises us "the steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives." (Psalm 37:23 NLT)

God really cares and is interested in every single step we make in our lives. He does plan and orders our steps. He knows the things to come to our lives in the future, so He prepares us and gives us the grace to handle them. When we give Him control of our lives, He prepares the way, opens doors that no man can shut,
and closes doors He knows are not for us. There will be times when we will not want to take some of those steps, but we must.

We can go through doors and walk on water as Peter did with Him. He is our strong rock and safety. He is our light that illuminates the way we need to go. His Word is the lamp unto our feet. With His Word, He guides us every single step, and we follow by faith, believing in our hearts that He loves us.

It is okay if we don’t understand every step we make. The Lord knows what those steps are, where they will take us, and how many we can handle at a time. There are many things in this life we will not understand until we meet our Creator face to face and spend eternity with Him. There are other things we don’t understand right now, but He will reveal to us later when we are ready.

Don’t worry about understanding the road you are on. If you are with the Lord, He is in charge, and He indeed directs your steps.
