One Step at a Time

The Lord directs the steps of the godly.  He delights in every detail of their lives. Psalm 37:23


Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light on to my path. Psalm 119:105


The Lord is my shepherd;

I have all that I need.

He lets me rest in green meadows;

he leads me beside peaceful streams.

He renews my strength.

He guides me along right paths.  Psalm 23:1-3


As I go through life, especially times when the future is uncertain, knowing that the Lord is directing me and delighting in every detail of my life gives me comfort, strength, and confidence.   His Word and Spirit give enough light for me to take the very next step without falling or stumbling.  I move forward in confidence and hope following my Good Shepherd.



Jesus, You are my Good Shepherd.  You direct my steps and delight in every detail of my life (Psalm 37:23, Proverbs 16:9).  Your Word assures me You have good plans for me which include every detail of what I need to do, and that I can know exactly what it is – if I take it one step at a time.  Rather than looking for a blueprint revealing all You have planned for my future, help me to be attuned and mindful to your Spirit, taking each step, in dependence on and confidence in, You alone.  I delight in Your Word and the love and wisdom that is available to me through it.  It is the light for my path (Psalm 119:105) illuminating what I need to see at the time I need to see it, one step at a time. 

In Jesus name I pray, amen.
