The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way.
Most of us are very focused on the destination for our life, on our dream coming to pass, on our problems turning around. But it’s important that you learn to enjoy where you are today while you’re on the way to where you’re going. Life is not about the destination; it’s about the journey—with all the bumps in the road, the disappointments, the things you don’t understand. Too often we rush through the day, trying to force our way through the challenges and setbacks to the destination when we should slow down and enjoy the journey. You’re going to be frustrated living like that.
You have to realize that God is ordering your steps. Oftentimes the journey He leads us on is not comfortable, but all the difficulties, delays, and betrayals are a part of His plan to get us to our destiny. He will work all these things for your good. Stay in the present. Take it one day at a time. You don’t have grace for tomorrow. You have grace for this present step.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You have a destination for my life as well as a journey to enjoy while I’m getting there. Thank You that You purposefully order my steps in the way that is best for me. I believe that You have given me the grace for this present step and that it’s working for my good. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
