Corrie Ten Boom made a statement that I just read. She said, “When we are obedient, God guides our steps and our stops.” Stops are so annoying especially when you’re in a hurry. Hurry is the world I live in. Realizing God is in our stops is probably harder than remember He is in our steps. Steps represent moving forward or progress, while stops seem useless. People go to great lengths to avoid stops. Some will try to cross a railroad track with red lights and the alarm ringing. Often they don’t live to tell about it. I would have to agree with Corrie that God is in both our steps and our stops. “Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity have dominion over me.” (Psalms 119:133 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
Prayer: Lord, help me to be obedient and follow Your direction in my steps and stops. Lord, You take the lead and I will follow. You see way down the road and know the end from the beginning. Trusting You leads to a successful journey.
