God Dirests Our Steps
A man’s heart plans his way,
But the LORD directs his steps.
Father in heaven, how thankful we are that You have the last say in our plans and You direct our steps.
We never know what a day will bring. Therefore, we thank You for the record of Joseph’s and David’s lives. In their youth both Joseph and David were sent by their fathers to seek the welfare of their brothers. Neither were received well by their siblings, but Joseph ended up a slave and David a hero. Yet both were where You wanted them to be. Both were used for Your purpose in saving others.
Perhaps we cannot discern the outcome, the purpose, of our own situation at present but we trust in You. We may not know what to do but our eyes are upon You and we wait silently and expectantly on You alone.
To You be all glory and honour forever. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen
And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” So they came near. Then he said, “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting. And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance. So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Genesis 45:4-8. Read Genesis 37-45 for the full story.
So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David. Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it.
And when the Philistines saw their champion was dead, they fled. Now the men of Israel and Judah arose and shouted, and pursued the Philistines as far as the entrance to the valley and to the gates of Ekron. And the wounded of the Philistines fell along the road to Shaaraim, even as far as Gath and Ekron. Then the children of Israel returned from chasing the Philistines, and they plundered their tents. 1 Samuel 17:50-53. Read the whole chapter for the full story.
O our God, will you not judge them? For we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, but our eyes are upon You. 2 Chronicles 20:12
My soul, wait silently for God alone,
For my expectation is from Him.
