The Lord Determines Our Steps
I am a planner and I guess I always have been. I have been a goal-oriented person in many areas of my life. I have come to realize that my plans have not always been what God had planned for me.
Sometimes the plans we make may be good, but God may want to take us in a different direction. This is where being flexible comes in. If we are living in faith and trust in our Sovereign God, then we should realize that God knows what is best for us.
I am sure we can all give examples of where we had plans and God took us down a different path for His purpose. Now when this happens it can be an eye opening “Praise God moment”. It is powerful when you understand and realize that God directed our path which turned out to be a blessing for us.
One of my favorite attributes of God is His Sovereignty. I place my faith and trust in God’s Sovereign authority over my life. Who better to direct your steps than our Lord and Savior. So, the next time your plan doesn’t go how you planned, look at it from an angle that God had other plans for you.
We can make our plans, but the LORD determines our steps.
