Psalm 119:105 says “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”. This passage holds the key to being good at life. We can’t see five miles down the road, but with God’s help we can see what is right in front of us. We need God to light up our path so we can see choices for our next step. The decisions that help us be good at life present themselves as we prepare to take the next step regardless of the situation we are facing.
When Christ is our flashlight in the dark, we look at our next steps the way God wants us to see them. Whatever the day brings we are to take the next step in faith, trusting God and being instruments of His love and power. Psalm 37:23-24 says “If the Lord delights in a man’s way, He makes his steps firm; though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with His hand.”
Life comes at us fast and although we may stumble a bit going forward into the unknown we will not fall because God is directing our steps. His love and His power are the lens through which we see the steps ahead. In times of crisis when we anxiously move forward, God will reveal our path little by little. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ”Sometimes the path ahead needs preparation and His lamp will show us we need to stand still. Wait on the Lord for the sign that it is time to make a move and then take one step at a time. In every situation, your next step with the Lord is always the most important one.
