Scriptures: Psalm 37:23-31, Jeremiah 10:28
God wants to help you plan your life and His ability to plan our lives well is infinitely beyond our ability. Its our mission to overcome our fears and allow God to connect to our plans. The Bible tells us that "the steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord," but who is a good person? A good person: follows God, trusts God and tries to do God's will.
If we are living by man's word, we already know the outcome of life's events before they happen. How? Because we are living by our own expectations! When we live by man's word, we believe that we are held back by mankind. We are victims of man's desires and feel that life position, nationality, corruption, government, etc. can hold us back!
We must realize that human thinking is contrary to God's Word! When we live by God's word our thinking becomes filled with faith, hope and promise. These verses from Psalm 37 show us that:
"...Steps are ordered by the Lord": this is saying that our steps are directed by God and His Word becomes our compass. The Word of God is reliable; while man's word is laden with lies, forgetfulness, change and unfulfilled promises. The Bible contains the words of a holy, trustworthy and unchangable God.
"...The Lord upholdeth us with His Hand": He holds onto to us, even when we fall. He's watching out for us, like a parent with his child.
"...The righteous are not forsaken...": He blesses us financially.
"...The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom and judgement": He endues us with wisdom and ability to make wise judgements in our lives.
"...None of his steps shall slide.": He keeps us sure-footed and directed.
Its time to give up trying to survive by man's word! God's words guarantee you will live well. Let's live by His Word and enjoy successful life!
